Design Board: Small Space Living

Design Board Small Space Living.png

I have lived in many small apartments in my day, and the one thing I have learned is that functionality is key, and if you’re only going to have a few pieces, you should really make them count. My idea for this board was to start with shades of purple on the wall, with a light purple on the top third and a dark purple on the bottom two thirds, separated with a white-gray chair rail and wainscoting detail on the bottom darker portion. From there, it’s about having pieces that serve dual purposes that are also eye catching. An end table and TV stand double as storage, and an accent chair doubles as a desk or dining chair. Against the backdrop of a printed sofa and bright accents, these pieces can easily transition from a small space to a large space. Shop the look below.
