We love the way @_susanagreen_ has used wall decals in complementary colours to tie together this small corner study area.

Here @aroundour4walls and @louwithseaviews both prove the power of bold colour in small spaces. For @aroundout4walls, clever wooden accents (from wall to lampshade) draw the eye through this modest hallway, making it appear larger than it actually is *takes notes*. Meanwhile, Lou’s green and toffee palette makes this living room corner so cocooning.


Running out of room? There’s a wall for that.


Murphy beds and folding tables may not be new ideas, but there’s a reason they’re still so popular. Here, Kristina (a woodworker in Lithuania) has made space for a wall-mounted table where it catches the natural light – and used valuable wall space.
