This interior decorator shares with us a few tips for decorating small spaces. Take Gerardine’s advice and embark on this exciting adventure! Choose the best accessories and decorate your small living spaces to reflect your individuality; you could even start a project with a mood board. Less is more! Gerardine recommends using only high-quality furniture. “Don’t overwhelm a small space with too many patterns, colours, or materials. Everything must fit together,” Gerardine says. Do’s and don’ts. “Do keep it simple and don’t mix too much,” Gerardine advises. Where do we start? “Start with a plan. What do you want to do with the space? Find your sources of inspiration, make a mood board, and pick a colour scheme.” Cushions, paintings, lamps, and candles. They make the best accessories for small spaces, according to the expert. Creating a sense of spaciousness. “A big mirror on one wall will transform a space and make you feel that the room is larger than it really is!” Gerardine exclaims. Go for neutral colour schemes. This includes colours like champagne, taupe, silver, grey blue, or grey green. Creating a minimalistic look. “Just remember that minimal doesn’t mean nothing, and simple doesn’t mean there isn’t personality. Always use warm colours to make the room cheerful,” Gerardine advises.
