Don’t limit built-ins to cabinetry. Beds, desks and beyond can make small or awkwardly shaped rooms feel bigger—not to mention the charm factor.


Any color with the right amount of gray in it can act as a neutral while adding personality to the room. Greens, blues and yellows are some of our favorites. 

Avoid lining every kitchen wall with cabinetry and storage. When we first look at a space plan, we find all the places we can bump up the window and door sizes. Then we design thoughtfully around them.

Small spaces are your best opportunity to do something unexpected. Think wallpaper, patterned tile, a dark, rich paint color to make the space feel more immersive. In turn you’ll forget to notice the actual square footage.
