Decorating the small place

In pursuance of my dream of having our place look much larger than it is, I am reading every magazine and blog post I can find about “decorating small”.  Luckily, Apartment Therapy is way ahead of me, and has many, many good ideas I can use.

In this article, the author explains the 3 things that make a big difference when you are living in a small space.

Turns out they are:

  • Lighting
  • Storage
  • Flexibility

I’m in total agreement.  Right now we are planning the lighting for the laneway.  Upstairs we will be using the abundance of natural light that will be coming in from our south-facing main windows.  Plus a nice pendant over the kitchen peninsula,

SRlampToo much?  It’s so hard to tell if we need that light or not.  Our thinking is that in the evening with the blinds shut on the windows, we may need some task lighting for knitting or reading that the pendant will not be suitable for.  We don’t want the whole room lit up, just a pool of light where we’ll be sitting.

Anyway, we are very carefully looking at the lighting in our place.
