balance





Today's small space dwellers series is all about balance and the small space solutions that are inspired by this. I am loving this interior from talented photographer, Brian Park.  Full of style with a sophisticated and gilded twist, there are some great small space solutions right inside using balance. Let's take a look a a few of them that you can use in your own small space. 

1 :: SYMMETRY
Creating a real balance in a small space will make everything feel good - which makes any space comfortable. Symmetrical decorating actually can be a neat addition to your design style and open up a space. 

2 :: PATTERNS
Oh la la am I loving the carpet in this small space! Aside from the fun color palette, I love how the pattern balances out the frames on the wall. Smart small space solution to making the most of balance. 

3 :: FURNITURE WITH LEGS
One of the best small space tricks is to use mostly furniture with legs. This allows the eye to continue moving past the furniture and expand the space. Simple, right? Yes! I love how the coffee table has long legs and that they are acrylic also (double small space solution)

4 :: MATCHING DECOR STYLE
While i am for mixing it up, it's also nice to have more matching style to create, yes, balance. I am enjoying the gold frames on the wall and think they add balance to open up the space.

5 :: HEIGHT
Take a look around your space and see how your decor is doing height-wise. If it feels out of balance, then get some inspiration from the room above. Check out the lamps in the room and see how they make the room level and balanced. Again, this creates an even eye and makes everything fall into place.
