Small is Relative
This London flat was described by House & Garden as tiny but compared to what they try to pass off as apartments in NYC, it’s positively palatial. It was designed by Ann Boyd after she decided to downsize after she realized she was spending more time at her country house. To expand the space, she strategically used mirrors in every room which also reflect the light which is important in often grey London. She also parred down many of her belongings which is the theme of my year so this is also inspiring to me. Of course she has another home for them which helps. The pale color scheme also helps to unify the entire entire space and create the illusion of more room. It also helps make each piece of furniture stand out and look special. If anyone needs me today, I’ll be continuing my quest to declutter.
