4 Stylish and Creative Ways to Design a Small Space

Leslie Lehr is a professional organizer, blogger, and lifestyle influencer. Tempaper recently partnered with Leslie to transform a closet into a chic workspace. Since she provides organized lifestyle solutions for the areas used most by providing style + function, we asked her to share her four favorite tips to style and create a small space.

My design philosophy is style and function by creating a space that is clutter-free and peaceful. When I style a small space I consider the following: 

Tokyo Removable Wallpaper in office space

1. Feature Wall
Establish a feature wall or accessory to add pizzazz to a small space. I love to use Tempaper Self Adhesive Removable Wallpaper, tile or oversized art piece to create a feature wall. The advantage of Tempaper and artwork is the flexibility to remove and replace.

Glass Table

2. Glass and Mirrors
Using furniture and decor made of glass and mirrors in a small space is a creative solution to enhance the room. The mirror provides additional light and the glass provides the illusion of additional space.

 Light - accessories

3. Light and Bright
Whitespace is like air: it is necessary for design to breathe – Wojciech Zieliński.
When I approach a small space I select accessories that are light and bright with a few pieces that pop.

Less is more office space

4. Less is More
My approach to styling and creating a small space is to only choose a few signature pieces because less is more. A fabulous small space can shine with one signature home accessory or feature wall.
