living large. or shall we say- small?

It's serendipitous when you are in the midst of searching everywhere for inspiration for small spaces, then bam- this video link from House Beautiful was e-mailed to me from a friend.  Thank you!
I have two small projects going on right now, one being a 660 sq ft one bedroom apartment that needs to poetically house 2 adults, 1 toddler, and a full sized dog, oh and a baby on the way!

I find that some of these smaller projects actually require bigger ideas, it's a challenging to say the least.   Can't wait to see how this project unfolds and how I can make a small space fabulous & graceful for a growing family.  Let's get space planning!

Kicking off my small pad obsession is Nick Olsen's 300 sq ft Brooklyn apartment.  Yes 300 sq feet!


This mirror {super fab}, the reflection adds depth to the space.  An entire seating area too, with fantastic pops of color.  I am loving.  Also notice the green accent paint on the door molding.  That detail was carried throughout all doors in the space, including the kitchen cabinets.

Attention to detail is key!  Every item in the space was factored into create a cohesive look.   I love the kitchen cabinets and the green plaid back splash!

Striking piece of art and again, tying in the green color into every area.  Here ,a green contrast welt on the sofa.

My favorite element is this painted dresser.  It's a tagged DIY project for my home now!

Overall, amazing that he created a high style home with such limited space.  Red tansu chests as nightstands- check.  Tons of storage- check.  Desk- check.  Green ribbon trim on drapes- check.   Nice touches Nick!
