We love searching the web to see what other people have done with their homes. There’s endless small-space solutions and ingenious hacks in these inspirational spaces that we’ve pulled to show you. Take a look!
Although west coast style leans towards monochromatic colours with natural woods, we love a bold colour mix. An unexpected colour pairing, like pink and green, is a great way to give your home a designer feel.
Add some quirk to your home by using furniture and accents in an unintended way. We love the idea of using floor lamps at your bedside. We also like the undone feel of using a mattress directly on the floor. Great for anybody decorating on a budget.
Plant stands have made a complete comeback, and we think they’re a great addition to a living room. They add dimension to a space and complete the whole look of a room.
It’s all in the details…
Adding a bench to the foot of a bed creates extra storage and grounds the room. It’s a great place to keep toss cushions and throws over night when not in use. If you’re feeling really organized, you can lay out the next days outfit on it!
Ikea shelving can be transformed with a simple coat of spray paint. Add some sheen or colour to brackets to make them pop!
Why not have three coffee tables instead of one!? Nestings tables are a thoughtful addition to a living room. Plus, you can move one of the tables and use it as a side table if needed.
If you live in a small space…
Try wall mounted or strung lights to save space. We love cage lamps and large, exposed bulbs. Both can be strung on Ikea’s simple and affordable cord system seen here.
Lean large mirrors to create the illusion of a bigger space. They bounce light and truly make rooms feel larger than they are. We love the frameless option in the right image.
Adding a vibrant rug will add so much brightness and depth to any room. We love colourful takes on traditional Persian or Turkish rugs.

If you need added storage…
Incorporate a storage credenza into your living room and create decorative vignettes on top.
Use a vintage trunk as your bedside or living room table. Store clothes, blankets, children’s toys, or basically anything, in them!
Add woven baskets on the floor for extra storage. These are a great affordable option that can be tucked under a desk or shelf.
These inspirational spaces offer perfect solutions for many problems! Trying using one, two, or a combination of all of these genius tips in your home.
