1. Go low + leggy.
When you have a small space, pick furniture that sits low to the ground, like this coffee table. It will make your ceilings feel higher. Choosing leggy furniture also makes any room feel airer, because pieces like these take-up less visual space.
2. Go BIG.
Even with a small space, sometimes you have to go big. Start with large pieces and work around them. With an 8×10 wool rug which is almost the size of his entire living room. It grounds the space and actually makes it feel bigger.
3. Walls are your best friends.
A modular system to store books, cameras etc., all the way to the ceiling. We added a small desk component to make the system more functional, and painted the brackets gold so it doubles as an eye-catching statement piece.
4. Art and mirrors.
Add art and mirrors, and you create visual interest in your small space. The only problem is that art can be expensive and hard to find. Why not turn to magazines to discover frame-worthy art.
5. There’s always room for plants.
There is always room for plants in any space. No worries if you don’t have a green thumb. Buy a single palm leaves from the floral shop and put them in vases like this one. These stems can last for a few months if you change the water and snip the ends weekly.
