Small Spaces Design Inspiration

May 20, 2015

Hello again! I took a few days "off" from blogging over the long weekend, but I am happy to be back with you today. We didn't partake in any camping or cabin adventures, instead we decided to stay home and give the exterior of our house a little love.  The siding and front porch all got a good cleaning with the pressure washer, the gutters were cleared and we successfully cleaned and shined  the gutters with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser....and by we I mean Nick. I supervised and held the ladder :)

It's easy to get caught up with taking care of the interior of your home but the exterior definitely needs attention too; after all it's the first impression of your home, and that's an important one. A few small updates such as a fresh coat of paint or new color on your front door, ensuring your house numbers are visible and not chipped, raking away old leaves, adding new soil, and washing the windows, all go a long way.

How fun and unexpected is this bright coloured door against the classic exterior of this home?

Let's head back inside the home for some interior inspirations. If you're a lover of decorating and home decor and you haven't yet checked out ApartmentTherapy.com then you're really missing out! If you do read their site, then you're probably aware that they are once again hosting the Small Cool Contest. Readers from all over the world submit their spaces to be voted on by readers as the smallest and coolest abode. I don't know about you but I love looking into other people's homes...online of course.

Here are some of my favourites! Remember, these are everyday people's homes, not professional or designer.

As you can tell, most of these homes are extremely small. I think it is so creative, unique and interesting to see how the homeowners have made even the smallest of spaces cozy and functional.  Seeing how other people decorate and style their homes is a great way to get new ideas and inspiration and maybe try a different style or approach to my own decorating and yours as well.

Check back Friday for the second spare room reveal!
