All great tips. I love the mirror in the first pic!
While large mirrors are ubiquitous, the one you feature in an antique window frame is so much more interesting because of its architectural features. It adds structure to a fairly bland space. The arch between the rectangular doorways gives the room an architecture that is lacking without it, besides expanding the space with the mirrored frames. I just love what they did there!
I wish I had wall stretchers. Great ideas.
I like the furniture with legs space and love all of the light. xo Laura
Good ideas. Love the first room. Like the idea of leggy furniture.
My daughter recently share the "furniture with legs" tip, but I can't afford a new sofa/chair right now. I'm looking at my slipcovers to see how they will look with the legs of the sofa exposed.
Love all the tips Brenda and all the examples with it!
note to Jennifer - that lg. mirror can be purchased at Ballards.comIt comes in three parts or if you purchase a smaller one, it is one piece.
I love the big mirror too..it makes it seem like there is another room!
Beautiful inspiration for living smaller. Of course I love using mirrors to enlarge a space visually. My adult children tell me that living small is trending among young people today. Mmmm...I need to do a lot more paring back to do this well.Thank you for your very lovely visit, Brenda.Mary Alice
I have been preparing to live small(er) once we sell the 'big house' we are in. I think I can do it now- 10 years ago I don't think I could have-but, today I have the mindset to live big in a smaller space. Great post, Brenda. xo Diana
Great hints and inspiration photos, Brenda!
I never would have thought of using furniture with legs, but of course now that you point it out, it makes perfect sense!
I LOVE the room with the blue walls, gray sofa, and the patterned rug! It speaks to me.
That blue room is heavenly!!
Great inspiration! I love your posts about small spaces!
