When dealing with a small space, DO NOT think you need to avoid average/large sized furniture and colour and pattern. In the case of Cath Beckett of design firm Yellow London, her 2 bedroom flat in Notting Hill, London is bold and quirky and has things like a large sofa in the middle of her living room, and a wacky wallpaper (Pierre Fray’s Plein Eté) in her teeny dining room. Her space is super cozy and full of personality and I could not love it more.
