Small space, big ideas
LIVE LIGHTLY AND AVOID CLUTTER
Having a small space doesn’t mean you can’t have big ideas when it comes to styling your home. The focus should be to live lightly and avoid all clutter that can mess up your home and your mind. Less space means you can own less, but focus on investing in objects of high quality in raw and organic forms.
Studio apartments and small living spaces are something to be celebrated rather than criticised. Rather than being burdened by the ownership of many things, relish the fact that every item has a function in its simplicity.
Multifunctional items are the key to living successfully in a smaller space and crafting a warm and relaxing environment. Stools can double as side-tables and ottomans as coffee tables. Scandinavian furniture offers light oaks and a sleek design which can complement a “cosy” space.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR WALLS
Look for artwork that evokes rather than provokes. Create a colour palette that tends towards a more neutral scheme with a high emphasis on texture and pattern. Think about styling and accessorising vertically. Hang plants and use the walls to display books, artwork and special objects.
