Small Space

Some of the accomodations at Yellowstone are quite .........

quaint.

As in - "very tiny."

Here is our cabin for ONE night.......


And here is my son brushing his teeth outside the cabin at the running water.........



Found a few cute photos for decorating in quaint/small spaces.


Country Living


The shelving was just squeezed right up under that ceiling.






Southern Living


I like how they used the shutters on a track between the spaces to adjust when you need to divide the space up a little more. The shutters are between all three rooms in the above two pictures.


House Beautiful


I've noticed common advice for small space decorating:


"They" always recommend (1) light/neutral color scheme on the walls that flows throughout the house; (2) lack of clutter; (3) lots of organization (shelves, magazine holders, cute boxes); (4) a focal point or two - like a large piece of art or a bold pattern on a piece of furniture - to draw the eye to the focal point and away from the 'little-ness' of the space; (5) multi-use spaces.



Pin It!

Did you have a bathroom in that tiny cottage?

Love that shutter idea, too.

Hope you are having a wonderful time!
