This utility room is made beautiful by careful organisation of the useful things within it. The cupboards, drawers, boxes and baskets are coordinated in shades of cream to set off the pretty eggshell blue walls. The lesson here to keep small spaces neat and tidy.

Hello, who’s that? If seeing a zebra staring at you when you come into your bathroom for your morning shower doesn’t cheer you up, then nothing will! OK, quirky animal prints aren’t to everyone’s taste but it’s a fantastic way to make a statement in a limited amount of space.
Dark colours can work great in small spaces
It’s common knowledge that small spaces should always be painted as pale as possible right?

Their Meatpacking District branch is noted for its exceptionally fashion-forward haircutting and host of other services like a cafe and shop.
