One of my favorite shows is Small Space, Big Style on HGTV.

L-O-V-E it!

Showcasing living spaces 1000 sq ft and under, SSBS is a fantastic resource when designing and decorating your own small space. Plus they discuss design issues and how to solve them.

I particularly loved a recent episode that featured Krista's Santa Monica cottage. Her taste is great - a colorful eclectic yet classic vibe (living room pictured above). She also discusses a common problem that occurs in a small space.
  • Problem: What is the focal point in the main room? She has a large rectangular space for her main room that she wanted to divide into 2 spaces - living and dining. She also had an off-center fireplace that she did not want to focus on.
  • Solution: Krista decided to hang a series of framed artwork to create an anchor. She was able to really define the living room space aside from the placement of the fireplace. She could then create a sitting space for her couch and 2 pink chairs. All if this gave the dining room definition to feel like it's own room.
Definitely check out this great show - DVR it ASAP!

Why are small space, big style, free style and sensible chic no longer on? Those were my favorites.
