A little while ago I was tasked with doing a small patio makeover for a bachelor pad in East London. It was a surprisingly challenging space: 2 sections; 1 outdoor on the ground floor and 1 inside a small lean-to…and each 3m long x 0.8m wide!
The outdoor space was made to feel fresher and more relaxing – if you live in London on the ground floor you’ll sympathise with prying eyes!
Whereas, the indoor space in the lean-to was made to feel like a natural extension of the bedroom, making it feel larger. I wanted to retain a masculine feel whilst incorporating the existing Scandinavian textures and palette of the main bedroom.
Do you have a small space that needs a facelift or have an outdoor city space that you’ve decorated? I would love to hear your ideas on decorating small spaces! x
