My wife and I have lived in tiny one-bedroom apartments since college, and we were at a loss when we bought a house and it came time to decorate a spare bedroom. We decided that we need storage as much as we needed furniture, and we just couldn’t find furniture that maximized the potential of the space. So, naturally, we decided to make it ourselves.
By now we realize the value and appreciation of a built-in bookcase to a small space design – it’s the easiest way to combine functionality (they serve as a both a nightstand and dresser) and aesthetics. In this particular bedroom, the shelves are lined with a gorgeous green-toned grasscloth wall covering. In additional to crating interest on the walls through photo frames, a gallery wall or busy decoration it to make a pop though wallpaper, which in turn has the same affect on the eye.
