- What I Love About My Small Home:
- We love that it simultaneously makes us feel comfortable, inspired, and ready to host. We love spending time at home alone or with friends and love the creativity this small, unique space squeezes from us.
- Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
- Use your storage as efficiently as you can to store away your clutter. Not having ANY storage in this apartment has made us realize how much it affects how clean and tidy we feel and how put together our space looks for our guests!
Use your wall space with serious purpose. I was determined to not over-decorate this space, and so I thoughtfully planned and limited the amount of things I put on the wall. I made sure my wall decor and art felt evenly weighted and purposeful, instead of putting something up just because I had it or liked it!
Spend time styling your shelves and side tables. Move decorations around until you like them. You can make your functional tables and shelves into beautiful vignettes that even you like to look at!
