Hi Readers,

Since my Blogger to WordPress transfer and redirect last month, I have been noticing some elements of my blog that didn’t transfer over. It wasn’t until last night that I realized one of my favorite posts just went away! Thank goodness for back-up! So here you are :).

1. Multi-Functional & Effectively Using Space You Have - This can be applied to many areas with in your decor. It could be applied to furniture, storage, and just your aesthetic.

2. Aesthetic - whether it is eclectic or shabby chic, all can be done in a successful way in a small space.

3. Color Scheme - neutral colors or an accent wall to add depth.

4. Less is More - keeping it simple is very important. You don’t want to try and be so crazy creative to over clutter your small space.

5. Furniture selection - clean lines can help a small space appear to me larger and cleaner

6. Storage - Hidden is usually my preference… but if you can pull off storage in a clean organized way, I say go for it!!!

  • Side Table/Bar – Great Idea!
  • Using a bookshelf and a longer table to make a desk! Great thinking!
  • Use nesting tables when you need they extra table top space – but tuck in perfectly when they are not in use.
  • Creating a work space in an unconventional area like under the stair case. Clever!
  • Great example of an accent wall – drawing the eye to add some depth to the room
  • Between the window treatment, accent wall with drapery and the chandelier – this space appears larger
  • These clear barstools can give off a more open kitchen space
  • Not only would this apply to the storage factor, but these chairs are great furniture selections when having guests over.
  • Pulling furniture to the center of the room can give the illusion that there is more space around them

    Wonderful ideas! I loved them all. You can even use them in large spaces. I especially loved the living room/family room area (??) it looked lovely!
