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.
