Coastal beach house with built in bunk bedsSpace, space, space! We all want more of it. Whether it’s just an extra cabinet here or another bedroom and a yard there, a little more space never hurt anyone. Unfortunately, it’s just not that easy which means we have to make the best out of what space we do have.

A smaller, or less desired, amount of space doesn’t limit design as much as you might think. When you are forced to get creative in a small space you tend to focus on what matters. In small spaces, it’s all about function.

A room designed with function in mind will transform it into a flowing, livable space. Strip down the design and decor to the bare essentials. When you keep it simple with the essentials you can start to build up the space or keep it simple.

Check out how these designers have used decor in smaller spaces and focused on the needs, not the wants.

:: Two Questions To Help You Get Cozy Over The Holidays ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal kitchen decorated for the holidays with ribbonsThis holiday season focus on the important things: friends, family and coziness. There’s nothing better than curling up with a warm blanket and getting extra cozy, especially during the holidays. We aren’t shy about our feelings when it comes to being cozy, we love it! But why not bring that idea to your home decor? It should be easy when it’s cold and Christmas time is here. It’s an easy process of elimination and addition to get your home ready for maximum holiday cheer and cozy comfort. All you have to do is ask yourself two very simple questions.

First question: does it keep me warm? If the answer is yes, then we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get warm with it. If the answer is no, we get rid of it. Simple as that. We’ll see it again when warmer days come back.

Second question: is it only socially acceptable to display/decorate with this during December without looking like a crazy person? If the answer is yes, then again we keep it, add it, buy it, love it and get warm with it! If the answer is no, we do it anyway! Okay, maybe not, but I’m sure most of us would like to because Christmas time is best.

That’s all it takes. It’s that simple. Little effort, maximum result! Get your home more cozy and more Christmas-y with those two simple questions. Stay warm and don’t forget to have fun!

Tuesday Tips

Bundle up with a comfy, warm blanket this fallWhat if someone told you that you could always be comfortable? Well, you can. You can always be comfortable, that is a fact. And what’s the best, easiest and cheapest way to stay warm this fall and winter? A nice, cozy throw or big blanket. Something you can snuggle up with and bundle the loved ones in to keep warm. Do yourself a favor and invest in a couple warm blankets and throws before you need one.

What’s the difference between a blanket and a throw? The difference is in size. Blankets are larger than throws. It’s that easy.

Stay warm and remember, never settle for anything that isn’t comfortable.

Decorating with skirted furniture is a great way to add style and charm to a space. They can cover up unwanted furniture legs or add volume to a piece to give it more weight. They also add instant coastal cottage feels which can make the space feel more cozy and welcoming. Using skirted furniture also bring a sense of continuity to the space. It brings the decor together while also giving you the option to break up the space by pairing furniture that is skirted with furniture that is not skirted. Say you have a separate nook you want to be it’s own space, using chairs that are not skirted can set it apart. Check out some of these beautiful, coastal spaces that have taken advantage of skirted furniture! Get inspired and a get a feel for cozy, skirted furniture!
