Monday Inspiration – Small Surprise

Today’s inspiration comes from the Brooklyn apartment of designer Katy Skelton.

What I love is how she’s made the most of such a small space, maximizing function while incorporating details that make a design really special.

Knobs, rugs, linens, and perfectly placed pieces help the space to feel personal, comfortable, and unique.

One trick Skelton used was to keep the walls light and use furniture that appears visually “lighter” (think white floating shelves and lucite side tables).  Pieces like this will add depth and dimension without crowding an already tight space.

She also balanced the scale of the interior with a few well positioned larger pieces – like the chunky black consul table or sleek sofa.

Overall, it’s a fun space that I wouldn’t mind kicking back in.

…and to be completely candid, those lucite side tables are sticking in my brain like glue.  Just what I need – another object to add to the lust list… sigh.







Loving all of the delicate details…









Loving the gold polkadot pillowcases!








Why not lean artwork on the floor and hang something else on the wall?
