Small Spaces that ROCK!

14 November 2011 0


Today I am going to be scarce with words and let these amazing pictures speak for themselves. It’s all about living in small spaces – living a happy and stylish life. Ever since I moved to Munich I’ve been living in a very small roof top apartment and calling 32 square meters my little happy place. But small space does not mean small style. These examples are just a few proof points!

    I love looking at small spaces that rock! I have a tiny apartment too so it’s always inspiring to see how others decorate and get creative with their small spaces. Awesome images! 🙂

    Love those inspiration pics! I just wrote about 2 40 sq mr apartments for the magazine… and they certainly don’t have “small” style, just much more attention for detail!

    Totally agree with all of you! I kinda like living in a small space – it challenges me every day to reconsider the choices of furniture and do some smart interior decoration. And it certainly avoids hoarding of stuff!

    Love seeing how others do up small spaces! Beautiful pics as always! I live in a 500 sq ft studio and am always inspired by people who can rock the small space that their { most likely} cool city has given them!

    I’m feeling so inspired by the top space with the bedroom on the little mezzanine floor – cosy or what! Always find small spaces some of the most inspiring to see as ever since I left home I’ve lived in small spaces. Have you read Apartment Therapy’s Big Book of Small Spaces? You must it’s soooo good! Fab post! Thank you! 🙂

    The first place I owned was a 49 square metre art deco apartment. I loved that place, and it was always spotless! That’s the beauty of small spaces.
    Current house is about 4 or 5 times that size and is almost never tidy.
    I love that first pic with the mezzanine bed (I presume).

    I first need to pimp my space:-))

    As usual, you’ve picked some stunning spaces! We live in a house that is too big for three of us, we rattle around in it…but try to make the most of all that we have. I love spaces like this, and I second the idea of seeing yours! Although I totally understand the need to pimp it first!

    Hi Igor! I agree, living in a small space is a challenge but when I look around my place (it’s small) but I only have space to surround myself with things that I love.

    Sometimes small spaces are the best, you only can fit what you love most!

    Thank you all for sharing your ideas on small spaces! I absolutely agree with most of you: in small spaces you can only fit what you love most! Bliss!
