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.
