Hi there! I'm Jenn and I'm a writer for Design Shuffle, a one-of-a-kind e-commerce website that tracks the top interior design ideas and trends from across the globe. My degree is in Journalism but my heart has always been set on home decor, and now I get to do both! I scour the internet for inspiring decor blogs, and I've had Kati Curtis Design bookmarked for some time - I was so excited when I received the assignment from DS to guest post here today! A big thanks to owner Kati for letting me blog.
Decorating the small space takes a few tricks of the interior design trade to really optimize the available extra room (if any) as well as keep it stylish and uncluttered. With the right elements a small space can be big on elegance. These eight unique spaces are both marvelous and modest - two things that can come together in fashionable harmony.
The open balcony and curly-q staircase may be a tad cold and industrial, but when paired with furniture that has stainless steel and chrome accents, the look is softened and more inviting.
The incredible thing about this bedroom design is that it's so high-tech. The bed is built on a tracked platform so that when it's not being used, it can be raised and at night it can be lowered. While costly, this was surely designed with small spaces in mind.
A long wall allows for a complete built-in kitchen, with appliances, cabinetry, and storage, while the punch of red also adds some spunky personality.
This bedroom design for two utilizes vertical furniture like bunk beds to clear up space on the floor for a desk, dressers, and a bookshelf. The unique and colourful wall mural is the true centerpiece of the space. Also see our post on Nursery design.
When decorating the small space, it's important to put emphasis on lighting. For example, in this space, in-set lights help to elongate the room and three hanging fixtures give the illusion of more dimension.
One of the best assets to a modest space are built-ins - a guest room with a hideaway trundle bed and storage tucked behind cabinet doors keep everything streamlined.
This den design encompasses eating and sitting areas, and uses blasts of vibrant color to not only separate the space but add visual impact too.
Kids will love a homework/art zone constructed into a cozy nook . Supplies are stored in patterned boxes overhead and a desk is set-up with a track for bins of markers, pencils, and more.
