House Tour Inspiration: Small Spaces

The latest Apartment Therapy house tour that really inspired me is from Sausalito, California. It might be a small place, but I think all the space is used very efficiently in order to have the most storage and room.

A pretty garden.


An adorable little house.

Loving the picture arrangement on the wall.

Mostly white with pops of color here and there. Lately this has been my favorite look!



What a beautiful blue color!



I love the dress being displayed like this and this old armoire.





A small kitchen, but still cute!

When talking about her style, the owner, Beth, stated, "I gravitate towards bright, bold colors and prints, grounded by whites and neutrals preferring to mix design periods, and definitely modern. The notion of slow design, collecting and curating items and artwork, over time resonates with me. A piece picked up while traveling, a family heirloom, a flea market find mixed with a crisp graphic on a pillow will thrill me."

I loved this description of her style. Hope you got as much inspiration as I did from this house! :)

Even though it's small and filled with things, it is the kind of place I would want to stop and rest awhile. Very relaxed and lived in, but in a positive way. Nice to see something that's achievable too!

I have that west elm chandelier in the tree in this first picture.

I love the turquoise/aqua wall, what a great color pop.

All things nice... said...

Oh my that house is adorable, small spaces are so cosy, but I have so much stuff I wouldnt have room for it all :)

All things nice...

Cornflake said...

What a delightful cottage. Just yummy.

I completely concur with mixing things up and collecting over time. Impossible to get everything all at once.

Loving the old armoire and sea shell which reminds me of mine!
