Styling Small Spaces

How to Bring Big Style to Small Spaces

As new residents move into apartments or dorm rooms, they trim their packing lists and often sacrifice style due to size restraints of their small spaces. Although it may seem difficult to bring big style into tight quarters, there are several small things you can do to bring your personality to life on move-in day.

“Tiny rooms can sometimes feel drab and uninspiring, but just because they’re temporary doesn’t mean they have to look like it,” says Tyler Wisler, interior design expert from Tyler Wisler Home and HGTV’s “Design Star.” “With the right tools and creative design elements, you can transform your home away from home into a space worth staying.”

Wisler recommends these simple tips to turn that bland box into something spectacular:

1. Color your world.

Incorporate colorful throw pillows and blankets to infuse additional hues into small white spaces. You can even change them out each season to keep things fresh.
