Beautifying Small Spaces

Happy Saturday dear friends! I’m a little late on today’s post but I’ve had a busy, hectic day. It started out by waking up a little later than I wanted. After I finally got out the door, I was driving along jamming to my music, and then I see this dark car about 400 feet ahead of me. I slowed down to get a better look and realized it was a police car. Just as I figured this out, the police officer pops out of his door and points at me to pull over. Busted. I had been speeding. The officer came over, tipped his hat, and said “I pulled you over because you were speeding.” I just looked at him and said “Guilty” as I retrieved my license and registration. Luckily, he was nice (and handsome) so he knocked down my speeding charges for me. I think he did so because I didn’t fuss with him and he’s probably sick of that.

Anyway, my day went as planned thankfully. I got to the gym and pounded the pavement (aka treadmill) and worked off my stress. Now I’m just sitting at the kitchen bar writing for you. I was so inspired last night by these cute little accessories for an apartment or small home. They make a big statement for smaller spaces.

I absolutely love a little tray table like the one above for either a nightstand of sorts or a bar cart styled piece for the living room. I don’t know many people who have room for an entire bar cart in their home. They’re rather large and bulky.

Inspired by my Restoration Hardware addiction, I saw that chandelier and fell in love. Sadly, it happens to be $3k but I might take it upon myself to raid antique stores or even warehouse sales to find a similar one for much cheaper. Chandeliers are great because they make a big statement without taking up any floor space.

As always, I love fresh blooms in every room of the house. They add life and color and don’t have to be expensive. I bought some from the grocery store for $5 and they’re gorgeous! It’s even better if their “fluffy” flowers like hydrangeas because they appear fuller.

In the foyer of any home, I really love having a little table where you can place your keys and mail if necessary. I did a post on this a few months back. The ideal foyer is not all that complicated or expensive!

Hope you enjoyed this bit of inspiration today! Life is beautiful, design your space around that.
