    Fabulous tricks for decorating small spaces

    Home décor that allows you to feel at ease in your personal space is always important, especially if there isn't much home to décor in the first place. If you live in a metropolitan city like New York, Los Angeles, or London, the trade up for close proximity to breathtaking cultural destinations and the best in nouvelle and traditional ethnic cuisine is often even closer quarters. However, just because the competitive market for affordable housing necessitates certain compromises when it comes to square footage, doesn't mean we have to sacrifice personal style when decorating small spaces. We posed our decorating issue to our favorite interior design guru, founder of Brooklyn based interior design store, Items of Interest, Susie Kurkowski. From paint techniques to lighting fixtures to furniture guidelines, here are Kurkowski's top 10 go-to design tricks for small spaces.
