The goal in a small space is to create a focal point, the one piece that anchors the space by creating balance and harmony. Loving this example of how the sofa is not lined up square under the windows. The designer used the walls to create a framed art gallery that mirrors the dimensions of the window and, therefore, created harmony in the space. The couch feels good there and the space is cohesive and balance. Be creative in your space. I decided to place our couch smack in the middle of our family room but it works because I balanced the space on the ends with pieces that are similar in form. There really are no "rules" for designing a space. What works for you in your home is what is best! LOVING. LIVING. SMALL. is about providing inspiration, ideas and tips for you and your small space and hopefully this page out of the SMALL SPACE DWELLER HANDBOOK will stay with you.
