Small Space Design Tips From LA Designer Kyle SchunemanAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Tackling a small space is a familiar—and welcome—challenge for Los Angeles designer Kyle Schuneman. The designer grew up in a 1,200-square-foot apartment with his sister and parents and has preferred a petite footprint ever since. Schuneman shares his small-space savvy in his book The First Apartment Book: Cool Design for Small Spaces. Whether you rent a studio in downtown San Francisco or own a manse in Studio City, you likely have at least one small space in your home, and Schuneman has some big ideas for you.
1. Don’t let a small space stifle a big statement: Small rooms don’t need to tell little stories. Most people choose diminutive patterns and pieces for rooms that are square-footage challenged, but not Schuneman. “I decorated this small-scale dining room with a large-scale chevron wall pattern,” he says. The oversize graphic makes the room feel more dramatic.
