What I Love About My Small Home:
I came into this apartment with the idea of challenging myself in terms of paint techniques and mixing styles.
The views overlooking the ocean calms me down after a hard working day.
And this home is stylish and yet relaxed. You keep your shoes, you don't have to use a coaster.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space:
The width of the chevron stripes I did gives the illusion that the space is wider than it is. Repeated the pattern in a complementary color on the dining room chair for a sense of balance.
The bedroom walls were nothing but a cardboard cut out, a green sharpie and plenty of patience. The complementary pillows give it whimsy.
The refrigerator was in the middle of the room. By placing the bookcase next to it on one side, and a hutch on the other side, made it look recessed into the wall. Now, you don't even see it as you come in.
