I've always gravitated towards blues and beiges when picking out décor for my space, so after my sister gifted me a pretty grey-blue and off-white floral duvet, I used that as my starting point for every thing else. Grey-blue as the main accent color makes my little studio feel calming and classic and works with all kinds of bright pops of color. My favorite is adding a vase with bright pink flowers to my coffee table to brighten up the room for the spring and summer.
Use Lots Of Bright Neutrals
When decorating a small space, it’s really nice to have lots of bright neutrals to make the space more airy. I love my ivory couch and white flowy curtains with the beige walls, especially since I don’t get tons of sunlight. You can always liven the space up with some cool pillows, throw blankets, and prints for the walls.
I’m obsessed with these botanical prints I found on Etsy from The Aestate. Mine are 11x14 but they come in all sizes from small to really large, and they won't break the bank.
Add A Cool Area Rug
Never thought I would be a cowhide girl, but it really adds some personality and makes a subtle statement. Also, they’re extremely easy to clean, you just have to get your shampoo out and spot clean it. Perfect for when you accidentally drop a slice of pizza facedown after a long night out – haha!
I’m really getting behind all things succulents, palm leaves, & pineapples right now, they give me a little tropical chic vibe (haha). And just like all things trendy, you can find these cool pieces just about anywhere online (Wayfair, Joss & Main, etc.).
Always Remember, Less Is More
Rule number one when living in a 500 sq. ft. studio, don’t try to fit in as many pieces as possible. Instead, focus on versatile pieces that will accomplish more than one thing – for example, I found a media unit with a built in wine rack (necessary) and lots of storage behind closed doors so I don’t have to stare down the chaos ;).
