CS: I love how the mirrored closet in the bedroom expands the space. Do you have any other advice for small space dwelling?
RG: Double duty furniture. All the furniture in this project needed to serve several purposes. For example, the balcony table was specifically designed to be able to be a wing for the dining room table and is brought in to increase the size of the dining room table when needed. It's important that every piece of furniture has storage capability.
And don't be afraid of going big. A common misconception is that small spaces mean small furniture. This home maximized the use of large storage furniture pieces. However, the large pieces in this space like the mirrored cabinet and the black cabinet in the dining room work here because they have such clean lines that they simply become part of the architecture of the wall rather than another object in the room, making the room feel less crowded while providing ample storage.
