So much beauty in a small space


I just looked through the March/April 2007 issue of Blueprint magazine. The new Editor-in-chief received a makeover of her 307 sq ft apartment done by the staff of the magazine.

It blew me away.

Check out the online version of this article.



What inspired me:

  • The use of wall shelving for storage that takes the least amount of floor space.*
  • The blue Le Creuset dishes on those shelves, which apparently are only available in the U.K.**
  • The curtain used to divide the living space from kitchen.*
  • The handmade television cozy for her flat-screen.*
  • The patterned bolster pillows for the sofa with the same fabric (in a different color) used in the bedroom.
  • Painting everyday objects to make them part of your decor. They painted her andirons with Surf Blue paint from Benjamin Moore.
