How To Decorate Your Small Space Like A Jewel Box
Here at H&H, we love the idea of treating your small space like a jewel box. That means layering in rich color, pattern, your most treasured items and glamorous finishes to fill every nook and cranny. Regardless of square footage, your home should feel collected and personal. Here’s a look at spaces by designers who have mastered this bold look in a tiny space.
In blogger Heather Clawson’s Uptown New York pad, there’s a home for almost every book and piece of art she’s collected over the years, despite it being a small space. “I definitely prefer interiors that look collected rather than decorated. Everything in my apartment tells the story of where it’s from, even if it’s a $5 find at the flea market,” she tells One Kings Lane.
While you’ll find multiple gallery walls in this home, Heather made sure to have space for the eye to rest with white-painted walls.

Designer James Davie isn’t one to shy away from mixing bold colors and prints, as evidenced by his small home office complete with a rainbow of saturated hues.
In his tiny home library, which is his favorite room in the house, he “tones it down” by sticking to a pink, purple and gold color palette. The result: a handsome space that’s cozy and inviting.
