I may have mentioned earlier that I’ll be moving into a new flat soon. I hate the process of moving, but I love the idea of going to a new flat and reassessing décor. While our new flat is much nicer, some of the rooms are a bit smaller, which has presented me with the following conundrum: How do you decorate small places?
One thing I’ve discovered is that white is your friend in a small place. White floors, white coloured walls, white (or glass) tables… All of this helps brighten up your room and give the illusion of space.
My next tip is to maximise your vertical space– that means use your walls! Hang art prints in a salon style up your wall to take advantage of all of your space. As you may want to go with a lot of white and light furnishings, adding art will add colour and interest. Try going with white frames to have consistency between all of your artwork.
Last tip (which is a bit more obvious), make sure form is meeting function in your home. It’s nice to have beautiful things, but they can serve a double purpose! Try to find furniture with hidden storage.
Do you have any tips for how you decorate your small space?
Gives the frame its character and provides the perfect setting for an artwork to be fully enjoyed.
Protects the artwork from dust and wilting so that it can be admired for many years.
Adds depth to an image and works with the moulding to enhance and protect the artwork.
Bonds to the artwork ensuring it is perfectly smooth and holds the whole frame together.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
