Fantastical Focal Points
Remember my dresses? Last year, when I bought the art piece, it had been displayed tightly together on a white background. I knew I wanted to enhance the sculptures and make them pop, all while making them a central focal point in my bedroom. Though it is not a large space, the art installation easily takes more than half the wall. And it makes the room look larger. Don't be afraid to have an anchor piece in your house that serves as a focal point in one room or another!
Collages, Artwork, Mirrors, Oh My!
Many small spaces are rentals units or apartments. And it's easy to get intimidated by rules and regulations. Or perhaps you're in a similar situation as me and you own a small starter home. Don't be afraid to decorate how you want for fear that it's not a "forever" home! Girl, spackle can be your best friend and walls can always remain painted. BUT, if you don't want to rock the boat, there are always decals.

Another option for wall decor with no permanent impact would be to utilize a leaning mirror! Ikea has them reasonably priced and I just found this one for less than $100 bucks!
Fabric is Your Friend
If you live in a small space, you likely either have high vaulted or shallow ceilings. If you're lucky enough to have vaulted ceilings, PLAY THEM UP, GIRL! And if you don't...FAKE IT! By using window treatments that start at the ceiling above your windows, you'll visually deceive your guests AND yourself into thinking you've got lots of space.
