Art Deco and Amazing

Who says a small home can’t be BIG on style and design?! Certainly not designer Nick Olsen who is the mind behind this 1,000 square foot, colorful Art Deco styled apartment. Lots of bright and bold colors, prints, fabrics and accents really make a statement!

Apartment Therapy’s – Smallest Coolest Homes of 2014

Apartment Therapy’s 10th annual Smallest Coolest Homes Contest just concluded and they crowned their US and International winners. I LOVE their Smallest Coolest contest so much! You get to see the owners creativity at work, making some inspiring things happen within a small footprint. These homes are high on style and design and offer some fabulous decor ideas.

Polyhedron Pod!

Described as a “Habitable Polyhedron” this small structure is one of the coolest spaces I have ever seen! Designed by Manuel Villa and constructed by Alberto González Sepúlveda, this pod was designed as a piece to be tucked away in the backyard as a guest house, family gathering spot or just your personal getaway space that’s away from home but not too far away. The glass facade gives this space a lot of sunlight and superb views of outside. So neat! Sign me up!

A+ A-Frame House!

A-frame homes don’t usually offer much in the way of interior space and this a-frame is no different but, home owners Karyn Gordon and Brent Penner have done amazing things with their Lake Simcoe house! Their cottage is so comfortable and cozy with little DIY projects throughout. You really can do a lot with small spaces, it just takes imagination and a little elbow grease.

Karyn, Brent and friends added the wide ledge/bench to the deck to offer more sitting space outside.

Low ceilings don’t keep this kitchen from having lot of storage space; the cabinets are just all below the counter.

Varying shades of blue give great color to the mostly white living room.

Karyn and Brent made beside tables from wood they found on their property.


Grand Entrance!

Past the front door, the entryway is the first spot your guests experience when they visit your home. What do you want that first impression to look like? Whether yours is just a small hall space or a medium size room, don’t overlook it. The entry is a chance for you to give a decorative glimpse of the rest of the house. Here are some inspiring entryway pics!

I love everything about this entryway!! The wallpaper, the light, the colors and it’s so roomy!

 Love all the blues and that wallpaper!!
Just one wall. They could have left it naked but this looks is so much more complete and fabulous! Our Regiment Suitcase Stack Chest would look great here!

 Need some extra storage space? This design is perfect.

White and Bright in Barcelona!!

I stumbled across this gorgeous Barcelona home on Houzz! The ground-level apartment is only 1,130 square feet but there is so much style and amazing in this place. Interior designer Mireia Pla created the warm interior of this space using white as the base with purple to add pops of color and lots of natural textures. Pla also made sure that this home had no shortage of sunlight by using floor to ceiling windows and skylights. Love, love this Barcelona beauty!

TINY, I Mean TINY New York Apartment!!

We have all seen some small spaces but I think this New York apartment takes the cake!! With only 245 square feet of space to work with, you may think it would be impossible to make such a tiny space a home but you would be SO WRONG! Tim Seggerman took that 245 square feet and created the most fabulous living space! He even made room for a full size washing machine in there!
