So you’ve decided to downsize and want the same pulled together look you had in your larger space. Small spaces can have the same feel as larger spaces, you just have to make a few adjustments.

Here’s a great example: When you visit a website on your computer vs when you open the same website on your phone, you will never be able to view all the details on your phone space that you would view on a large screen computer, but you still get the same visual feel and information.

I like to think of a small space or area as a “vignette” which is a french word meaning; a short version that clearly expresses the typical characteristics of something.

When designing a small space here are a few tips:

Think simple, less is more
Keep it light
No clutter allowed
Start with your largest item first
Go for a neutral space with pops of color
Accessorize the space to coordinate
Use what you love just less of it
