If you have a diminutive space to work with, you’ll enjoy Mr Lichtman’s simple rules for managing a small space:
1) Don’t use white, it makes a small space look sterile and clinical.
2) Mirrors double the light and sense of space in a room.
3) Use a few larger accessories rather than lots of small items which can create a cluttered look in small spaces.
4) Furniture doesn’t have to be small…a few large pieces play well.
