BEAUTIFULLY SMALL FOR SETTING YOUR HOME WITH HYGGE IN MIND…

We all have some small spaces and struggle to know how to fit everything into it that you need. Well in Beautifully Small, Sara Emslie embraces the positive aspects of living in small spaces and offers creative design and style solutions to the practical problems associated with limited living space.

In Chapter 1: Inspiration, Sara draws inspiration from truly tiny spaces such as boats and caravans as well as her own home – a diminutive workman’s cottage in Richmond, London.

In Chapter 2: Elements of Design, she discusses how even the most straightforward planning decisions can be complicated by the constraints of small spaces and suggests clever design solutions.

The third chapter, Elements of Style, explores ideas for making compact interiors work through creative styling and decoration.

In Chapter 4, a series of case studies takes a closer look at imaginative treatments for pocket-size interiors, showcasing a variety of tiny spaces including a terraced ‘two-up, two-down’ worker’s cottage, a tiny studio with a clever mezzanine that incorporates a bathroom and a pint sized coastal hideaway.

A lovely book for your coffee table.

REMOVE CLUTTER THE HYGGE WAY…

The Danish homes are usually stylish with a minimalistic look but with some personal touches.

The rooms won’t look sterile but homely with cushions but not tens of cushions – ‘ think less is more’.

Have a place for everything and remove the clutter. When your home has less clutter it looks cleaner and therefore doesn’t need cleaning as often.

They say the that a home that is free from clutter will be less stressful for you and you will feel more included to invite friends around to your home.
