Small space solutions

I wanted to share some additional photos with you to show you ways to optimize small spaces. Trust me, I’m no expert on this but with only 610 sq ft and a love for fashion, running, cooking and decor I needed to find ways to store everything while still preserving some style!

Entryway

When you entered our Boston condo you were greeted with a backdrop of Brookside Moss, Benjamin Moore and various elements from modern art to Persian Gabbeh rugs. You could say my husband is a rug guru! We wanted to make the entryway feel open but functional and found this desk/bookshelf combo at Crate and Barrel for $400, which they now offer with a wine rack in the center (way more chic than our desk but at the time I was an academic)! The black leather chair trimmed in silver studs was a great find at your trusty Home Goods. Again, we scooped up lots of trinkets at Todd Farm flea market, Rowley MA like these authentic peacock feathers, and my husband’s mini-collection of Nutting and Sawyer hand-colored photographs of nature.

Living Room

The living room features one of my all-time favorite paint colors: Revere Pewter, Benjamin Moore. We used the metallic sheer curtains in both the dining and living room (Todd Farm steal). I came across this great mosaic mirror at Pier 1 which you can find similar here. Todd’s Farm never lets you down; I found this stylish vintage trunk that solved our storage problems for only $20 and these vintage mint julep cups that I used as vases for $5! The brown geometric rug, from Manhattan Rugs, really pulled everything together and was one of the last purchases for the living room.  Lastly, when my husband and I got engaged, we purchased this Jonathan Adler monogrammed pillow.There are my nuts and bolts tips on living large in a small space. Faced with similar storage issues, share them! Thanks for stopping by-cheers!
