I adore small spaces .. those that are packed thoughtfully with meaningful and treasured possessions. It makes me a little sad to see so many vast, empty homes taking up precious space on our earth, for the sake of having space. It is often the case that these homes lack the warmth that comes with small living, the cosy and comforting touches that small spaces necessitate.
The closeness that comes with a small space is intimate and nurturing. Of course we all crave our own space at times, and this can be factored into a small space carefully too. There is a lot of small space inspiration to be found so I have gathered a few favourites and added some notes on ideas for small space living.
From the top:
Lovely chairs can be used for side tables or for stacking and storage and then when you have guests they can be added to the table or living area.
Shared bedrooms are so perfect for young children, they really don’t need their own spaces until they are approaching the teen years and this makes such a difference in a small space or when considering the number of bedrooms needed in a home.
Stacked storage boxes make a lovely bed side table, and utilising wall space above the bed for photos as an alternative to frames is space saving!
I love that this floating shelf has been built into the empty space below this window, perfectly placed above the bed.
Similar to the one above, the shelving in this beautiful little bedroom takes advantage of the available space.
The final three images are all such divine small outdoor spaces! Lighting can make a huge difference in this type of space and I also love that these spaces have been created to extend the indoor living outside.
