Domino Inspired Room: My Kitchen
I moved into an apartment last year that had an impossibly small kitchen (3 drawers, no cabinets, and one 2ft x2ft block of counterspace), and in trying to figure out a way to make the space work I was inspired by a particular kitchen in domino magazine.
We’ve already featured Rashida Jones’ 400 sq. foot apartment….and it’s featured in the We Love Domino header on the far left and far right!
This one shows us how to live a full life–including lots of books for you bibliophiles–in only 625 sq. feet. The Domino slide show says, “In this small apartment, assigning areas for specific purposes and designing each distinctly makes the space seem bigger.”
This room, designed by Antony Todd, has demension despite it’s small floor plan. I’m sure the minimal but beautiful color palatte also helps to unify the space but not make it look bland–who loves that wall color like I do??
Perhaps not for the claustrophobic, but a great idea for making a small, difficult space actually functional, “[t]he shape of these turned headboards allows the beds to fit just right between the window and the wall making an impossibly small room a cozy useful space.”
Readers were asked to contribute their advice for small space decorating. Here are a few of their tips:
“Chocolate brown walls actually make the 9′ x 9′ space feel larger.”
— Rebekah from Auburn Hills, MI
“Low, modular seating creates an illusion of height and openness.”
— Glynn from Lowell, MA
What’s your favorite small space tip?
A look ahead to March around We Love Domino:
Thanks to you, We Love Domino has developed a bit of a following, and inspires me daily to keep commemorating Domino. In the upcoming month, we’ll feature The Domino Inspired My Home Contest, and we’ll look at designer favorites and small spaces that are chic and multifunctional.
As well, we’ll start expanding our wings to find resources outside of Domino that can provide you with your Domino-like fix, whether with blogs, magazines, designers or merchandise. Stick around, it’ll be an exciting month!
