Vignettes or visual partitions help delineate space and give the illusion that you have more room than you actually do. In this design the "bedroom" is clearly defined by the statement headboard, while a dining area sits nearby, anchored by a pendant light and artwork on the walls.
If possible, it's important to have a spot to sit that isn't your bed. A mini-living room or lounge can be carved out of even the tiniest rooms. Scaled-down furniture, such as a loveseat, and lighter pieces like these wicker chairs and the glass table, provide a sitting area without taking up a ton of visual space. If there isn't space for a sofa, consider making a sitting area out of chairs.
Mobile furniture is essential for a studio. Since everything needs to be multi-functional, pieces that can move around easily are a bonus. This little cart is great for kitchen prep and storage, but can also be wheeled into another area for use as a serving table or drink stand.
I'm not the first person to suggest using vertical storage opportunities to their fullest in a studio, and I won't be the last!
This design makes advantage of the long, narrow space. The dark accent wall recedes, making the space appear a bit bigger, but the wall color also helps the office accessories and electronics blend. Lighter furniture provides a great contrast, so the visual focus is more on the chairs and not as much on the computer monitor.
