Small Space Solutions
Raising furniture off the floor keeps a nook open and airy. Select furniture with clean lines to keep the space from feeling cluttered.
Float a simple console to create a quasi entryway. Its streamline appearance keeps the space functional, yet virtually invisible.
Try using furniture made from non traditional materials. Items made of acrylic or lucite keep the area feeling light and reduces the visual weight in the space. When not in use, these pieces seem to just vanish into thin air.
Make doors and trim disappear by painting them the same color as the wall. The color continuity makes the space feel larger and creates a seamless look.
Use wallpaper to create drama with texture and repeat patterns. The trellis pattern is art unto itself and reduces the need for much wall decor.
Once lit, these exotic Moroccan lanterns feature a hand cut pattern which allows an hypnotic light to dance around the room.
Every loft apartment I've ever been in seems to have some odd little spot like this that is crying out to be used. Here it becomes the perfect wine bar. The racks of clear bar glasses above keeps the view from the window open.
Carving out a niche in the wall and covering it with gorgeous wood is another great way to create a bar.
White shelves against a white wall to help the shelves fade into the background.
hate the colour, but the room looks larger like this!
