[ tiny but glam ]

THINK YOU don't have the space to make your room glam? Well think again - this bedroom is only wide enough to fit a mattress yet oozes glam with its beautiful chandelier, upholstered headboard and display shelves all adorned with nailhead trim. Who says your space needs to be large to be beautiful? (although changing the sheets would be a little easier with a bit more room!)

Spending 2 weeks in a hotel room has me thinking of what it would be like to have to live in a little studio apartment in the city where every inch counts. Do you, or have you lived in a teeny space?

I have loved living in teeny spaces I think as much as spacious ones ~ so much depends on the place itself. Our apartment in London was tiny ~ but it looked onto a lovely park with oak trees so it didn't feel small.

But nowhere have I lived in a spot as cleverly teeny as this! It is SO clever!

Wow! This is a small space. Just goes any size space can be pretty!

Amazing. Good reminder that any space can and should be made beautiful, can totally change your outlook. Now, I was thinking the same thing - how on earth do they change the sheets??
I do not live in a small space, I feel very very lucky to have plenty of breathing room :)

I don't think I could do it, I've been so spoiled! When we have travelled aboard some of the hotels are like that so small....I come home with bruises from bumping into things. I need space...that is a pretty glam space though! Have a wonderful Tuesday!

My cottage bedroom is only 78 sq feet. I have only a bed and a dresser in it. I have to lay on my belly over the bed in order to make it and whoever gets the inside wall to sleep has to climb over the outside person...not so easy when tired and sleepy.

Wow...they really packed everything into that tiny room didn't they? Looks very posh tho!! I had a teeny, tiny bedroom when I was a teenager and I loved it! I'm a very organized person (I was even as a teen) so I made every little inch count!

Fun post!

I like how all the decor makes a statement and isn't precious looking even though it is a very small space.
I don't think I could handle something this small...but I like bedrooms where square footage isn't wasted. I prefer more space in the common areas.

Your know what they say...'good things come in small packages'...I often think that big spaces are harder to furnish and deliver the type of impact that this little room provides. Great photo! Robx

This room makes me feel SOOO much better about bringing a baby (and all his stuff) into our two bedroom condo. Just because it's small doesn't mean it can't be fabulous right?? Promise to remind me of this post when I start having a nervous breakdown about trading shoe storage for bottles. Eeee GAD.

Absolutely awesome use of space!

Aimee@ the Functional Space said...

My best friend in high school's bedroom was no bigger than this one but it was decidedly less glamorous! If I was living this small I hope it would feel just as fab!

Pinecone Camp said...

That's incredibly teensy! Don't know if I could sleep there ;)
Cute space though!

Beautiful space!! I lived in a jr. 1 bedroom in Toronto which was perfect for me. Then my now-husband moved in and then we had a baby and we stayed until he was 1-year-old. It got a little cramped but I miss that tiny apartment all the time.

LOVE that space!! Makes my teeny home seem big. ;)

What a fantastic use of space! the lighting makes all the difference!

P.S. Added you to my blogroll so I can catch more of your lovely posts!

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

I adore that room. I love the writing on the blind and the lighting too. Lots of things to draw your eyes around the room so you hardly have time to notice how little space there is!!

What a pretty space! But I think I would go stir crazy in such a tiny spot!

annie said...

What a well thought out space...every square inch has been well planned, I love the chandelier and the nail head trim on the shelves.

Charming but truly tiny - too tiny for me. My first apartment was a studio and I loved it for a while but yearned for another room to wander into.

Style Attic said...

Yes mam! When we were first married, we were in a 700 sq. ft. condo. Also welcomed our 1st child there...for 18 month of his life! I did the best I could and now that I look back, we had it so good :) These pics are awesome!

DailyDreamDecor said...

yes, I'm living in one tiny space right now:)
love how this one looks:x
