Home Inspiration – Sara Emslie’s Home

As an owner of a small terraced Victorian home, I love to see how others deal with limited space.  Sara Emslie, author of Beautifully Small: Clever Ideas for Compact Spaces, by Rylands Peters & Small Books, knows a thing or two about tiny spaces.  Her own home is perfectly petite, yet oh so delicious!

Instantly I was drawn to the mantelpiece, yes we all know I love a beautifully dressed fireplace. Look at that hand carved spoon!  Obsessed me? I think so! Perhaps Dan and I need to display our handmade beauties a little better.  
Sara uses her dining room as an extension of the kitchen, space being at a premium.  I love how utilitarian it looks yet homely.  Simple colour schemes, paired with pretty florals make the space welcoming and uncluttered.  

Upstairs Sara’s bedroom is serene. White on white, with natural accents.  Clever large baskets under the bed hide a multitude of clutter and wooden shutters are a great way to shut out light with out the fussiness of curtains.

This house is my kind of place.  What do you think?
