Last week my friend Jaimie Meares was in town and helped me finish decorating my apartment. I had gotten the main pieces into place last summer but felt like it still needed some art, plants, lighting and pillows before it was “done.” One thing I’ve learned about living in a small apartment is when you add art and furniture the space feels so much bigger. I can’t wait to share the photos of our teeny tiny place.

    Could you do a post about how to style bookshelves, pretty please? We have so many books and I’m constantly on the lookout for functional and stylish ways to display them!

    cute! I am always looking into small space decorations and organization because my apartment is only 500 sq feet! I don’t know how you do it with four people!

    So true. Well placed art makes a small space much bigger and homier. Looking forward to seeing more!

    Love this, since I am in a smaller place. I moved in two months ago but am still nesting a little bit – thanks for this, looking forward to tips!

    I look forward to seeing how you’ve organised your entire space. We’ve just moved into a small apartment with two young kids, so more than how it looks…how do you stay sane with two boys in the mix?! : )

    Here in Spain we don’t use sq feet but m2 so I did the conversion and… well your appartment is small indeed!

    I have a lot of books I want to out on a shelf but I can’t seem to keep my books organized as my shelf has insufficient space. I want a bookshelf like that too. How and where can I get that? It looks sturdy and the size looks bigger than my own shelf. It’s just the right size for my books. Can you please post another pic of that bookshelf? I would really appreciate that. I am considering designing my own shelf. Thank you.

    I have that same book shelf but I use it as a table between my sons beds in their room. It’s been great as a side table for them. Its from World Market. Their new line of industrial reproductions are really great and low in price.

    Can’t wait to see more. I love styling book shelves, its something most don’t think about but it can make a huge difference in a room!

    I’ve always been a sucker for good looking book shelves and you have the touch!

    I can’t wait to see the final result. Books, shelves and nick nacks are the best part of a room I think.
