5 Styling Tips for Decorating Small Spaces


Big style in small spaces

Whether starting out, downsizing or moving inner city, being restricted by a lack of square footage can put a damper on your décor. While you want to put your personality on parade with beautiful pieces full of function and form, too much stuff in a small room can feel claustrophobic. But just because you don’t have a huge home doesn’t mean to you can’t have plenty of panache. We’ve got 5 styling tips for decorating small spaces with style.


Select a sofa big on style

The statement piece in every living room and also crucial for comfort, just because the room is small doesn’t mean you have to get stingy with style. The 2.5-seater Lisette sofa pairs comfort and grace. Available in both linen blend and velvet in a range of colours (indigo velvet pictured above), you can tailor your little lounge perfectly.


Bust small by going tall

Standing tall at 1900mm, our Dawson Shelving Unit provides plenty of space for books, plants, picture frames and collectables in one stylish unit. What could otherwise be disorderly on multiple surfaces will feel intentional in this beautiful piece. Pictured here with the Carson Leather Sofa, it’s mid-century chic at its finest.


Put your walls to work

Large framed prints or canvases not only provide opportunities to display your personal style, they also draw the viewer into the settings, such as a floral garden, a beach and funky beatnik bistro. Mirrors, on the other hand, are magic in small spaces. They work to amplify the space and light to make the room seem larger.


Get a trunk for the junk

When it comes to dinky dwellings, storage is a no-brainer. One of our smartest styling tips for decorating small spaces is to find creative ways to stash blankets and pillows or conceal the clutter. This Vintage Trunk / Coffee Table will let you store with style to keep the chaos hidden while also serving as a gorgeous coffee table for your cuppa, glass of wine or fruit basket.


Consider a collection

Picking your pieces from a specific collection will offer natural unity. The Trentham is timeless in a rustic textured timber and among the offerings are this queen bed and 9-drawer chest with 2 x Trentham 2-drawer bedsides, plus a TV unit and bookshelves. Together they can offer clever cohesion to make your mini manor feel united and relaxed.
