Above: using a large sconce as a console is a great space saving idea
In Australasia and the USA large homes are prevalent, although I have scaled down to a small cottage of around 120 square metres, with some extras such as an en-suite and walk in robe, combined with the location to the beach and city it is hard to beat. However, the one thing I miss is a separate dining room. So, when I came across an interior designer who has chosen to downscale to 69 square metres, I wanted to see how she has utilised the space.
Katie Gagnon of Blue Moon Trading Company chose to purchase a smaller property to enable her to cut down on travelling time and live the life she wanted. Her 69 Square metre apartment is decorated throughout with white walls and woodwork which help create a sense of space. Katie says it has everything she would want in a larger home and I see she even has designated dining space. If you like Katie's style, I recently featured a fabulous project of hers, I have added a link at the end of this post.
