4 Tips to make Small rooms feel Large!

Monochromatic Room
1.  THINK BIG... Instead of filling a small room with lots of little pieces, opt for overscale furniture and accessories to cut down on clutter and make the room feel more spacious

2. GO MONOCHROMATIC... When colour is spread throughout a room the eye doesn't suddenly stop and get stuck on something.  You want the eye to flow around a room so it seems larger.

3. COLOUR THE CEILING... Paint it a shade or two lighter than your walls so the eye wont immediately recognize where the walls stop and the ceiling begins

4 SET THE STAGE... Think of a room as a stage show: There are stars and there are supporting actors.  To avoid fussiness that can crowd out a small space, choose just one star for each wall!
