1. Step up the drama. Go against the norm for small bedrooms and don’t be afraid to add a lively mix of pattern, a dark color on the walls, or even a four poster canopy bed!

2. Be flexible. A nightstand can double as a desk and also give an unexpected twist to the traditional bedroom layout. (This mini desk is from West Elm!)

3. Go big or go home. Don’t let a small space stop you from having big style. Floor to ceiling shelves, a glamorous chandelier, and a dramatic painted ceiling give this room a ‘wow’ factor regardless of its size.

    After living in a small NYC apartment for 7 years, I can attest that everything on this post is great advice! You really learn how to get creative with space utilization while trying to decorate with your personal style! Not the easiest thing to do :)

    So much in a little space…love it. Love the mix of textures on the bed.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Great ideas. Thought of a couple more: Having a hutch with your desk gives you extra vertical storage. And don’t forget about under the bed!

    I love the chandelier over the bed. That’s one thing I’m still hoping to do in my own bedroom.

    This post was just what I needed – I am all over the blogosphere today trying to figure out the next step in our master bedroom. I’m in a little bit of a “panic” because we painted and installed two wardrobes this weekend and even though I absolutely adore the color (which I have used on different things in other rooms of our house), I’m just not loving it in here! Not sure if it’s the lighting (probably) but I need to find a way to remedy it so that I can LOVE it!!! Now I’m debating painting the bedroom…Ack!!!
    Anyway, thanks!!: )

    Pretty wonderful job done considering the size limitations. Everything looks so comfy and inviting :)

    I love the picture from the Apartment Therapy. I think it was featured on Buzzfeed too. Love this post, Melissa!

    I’d love to know where the small white table is from… been looking for one similar everywhere!

  10. Diana

    Agree with Laura. Looking for a nightstand/desk combo similar to the one here. Any pointers??

  11. Cindy Richmond

    This is exactly what I had in my mind to do!! Thank you. Can you tell me where I can get the parson’s table/nightstand/desk? And if not, do you know the dimensions?
