Decorating Smaller Spaces
l Use mirrors to reflect light and create more depth. l If you have a studio apartment, don’t be afraid to paint different areas of the room different colors. Use screens, hanging fabric, even detached hanging windows to break up the space. l With limited storage space, its best in the kitchen is to hang everything. l More about storage: use a trunk for an end table, putting your winter sweaters inside. Buy furniture, such as ottomans and tables, that have storage space inside. Put up plenty of shelving. l Go ahead and display your collections. l Create negative space wherever you can in order to reduce a cluttered, claustrophobic feeling. l Use sheer window coverings to let in the light. l Most importantly, let your space reflect who you are, and visitors won’t even notice the size.
