Making the Most out of a Small Space

Sometimes it's the small spaces that seem the hardest to work with, other times they are the most fun! You may no feel like you have a lot of room in your home, but here are a bunch of spaces that make the best out of the square footage they do have!



Who says you can't have a hugy comfy chair in a small room?

Or a kitchen table that only has two chairs?


A closet in your staircase might not be your initial thought.

Or a desk in your closet! But it looks great doesn't it?

Simple Ways to Spruce Up for Fall

Changing decorations out for seasons is an easy way to bring the outdoors in, but sometimes it's not the most convenient. For starters, storing all these decorations can be a bit overwhelming and frustrating. Spending a huge budget on changing decor isn't always ideal either. Here's a happy balance of both that can get you on the right track!

Blankets and candles are things almost all homeowners have around the house. Placing them in the right spot can really change up the decor and bring some fall loveliness in! Since these are also things that are already have around the house, you won't need to find extra storage options for them later.


It's amazing what a tray of white pumpkins can do! Trays are so versatile and can be used year round in different locations, and pumpkins - although they aren't always cheap - aren't something you'll have to worry about storing! 


Empty frames, burlap, a great jar, some old books, and that touch of outdoor fall really gives this mantel a great look. These are things you  might be able to find laying round the house that you can pick up! If you aren't interested in using pumpkins, you can always find acorns or pine cones to take their place. Using things you already have is a great budget option.


Here's another option for things lying around the house or outside that you might find as a great budget friendly home decor option!

Even decorating the outdoors can be overwhelming! For me a simple wreath can do the trick and look so elegant at the same time!

Luscious Neutral Spaces

I think everyone can agree that there is definitely elegance in simplicity. Simplicity can by reflected by your decor, textiles, or in the examples below, through a restrained use of color.

Walls that Make A Statment

Lately my eyes have been drawn to some great rooms that are making a statement and I am loving it! Whether they are bold, classy, or just downright elegant, it is nice to see someone take a chance and make something beautiful out of it.


This wallpaper would not be an immediate first choice for me but it definitely does make you stop and stare! Seeing it in this room really makes me love it more!


A wall of windows is always eye-catching. The bold choice of black makes it stand out even more and I think it was a great choice. 


Another non traditional wall paper in a room you wouldn't expect! Since bathrooms are small I tend to do with less is more in these areas but since the wallpaper has a lot of white space it really works here! I also like the simplicity of the color scheme.

Upholstery tacks are often seen on furniture, seeing it as a wall decor statement is something I've never considered.

Do you have a different idea for a wall statement?
