Small Spaces are Perfect for a “Design Punch”

Want To Go Bold in a Subtle Way?

Contradiction?  Think again.  Do you have a powder room?  A mud room?  A laundry room?  A walk in closet you want to give the bespoke treatment to?  The ubiquitous “Philadelphia third bedroom” that is sized for hobbits not humans?

These are the perfect spaces to try something bold.  Why?  It is a small space so any hallucinogenic wall paper won’t run on and on for ages but stop neatly without inspiring any potentially dangerous flashbacks.  What’s the fun of owning a powder room if it’s not wacky yet chic?  How fun is laundry & HELLO! having a laundry room if you can’t do WHATEVER YOU WANT WITH IT?  Who REALLY wants that uber neutral Pottery Barn mudroom that just screams……I don’t even know what it screams…..because it’s so neutral.

Remember why you bought a home in the first place?  No more cold hard white rental walls.  No more running paint colors by your (more then likely) not so jazzed landlord/roomies.  No more returning the walls to that awful cold hard white while packing, planning a move & cursing yourself for not just putting up posters like a normal renter.
