You haven't seen every nook and cranny of our 613 square foot apartment. And it's not because they aren't finished. You see, it's difficult to photograph rooms that are as tiny as our bathroom and bedroom. No way to position a camera or a tripod to do it any justice.
Below is a glimpse of our bedroom, an image I had to splice together out of several shots. The room is 10x9 (does that actually qualify as a room?) and is nearly completely filled by our king size bed. We weren't willing to downsize that and the last thing our small space needs is another queen! Ba-dum-bum chhh!
The wall at the head of our bed is painted a deep greyed-down purple, mirroring the drapes in the living room. Simple roller blinds in an oatmeal linen (with blackout lining) cover the wall of windows.
Because the room is so small, we kept it completely simple: bed, side tables, lamps. No muss, no fuss. Nothing on display, no artwork, no extraneous furniture. When the blinds are open, the city is filled with interesting things to gaze down upon. And while our living space is chock-full of all our worldly possessions, layered and cozy, the bedroom is clean and tidy, downright minimalist.
My favourite part of the room has got to be the lighting. Our beautiful marble lamps flank our bedsides and we found the ceiling fixture a small town second-hand store ($2!) is just the right hit of feminine in our masculine digs. It was probably meant to be hung in a foyer or a stairwell, but we loved the iridescent finish on the globe, the oily purple playing well with the wall. On yet another dimmer, it adds a lovely softness. Full Disclosure: Jeff found the beauty in a pile, so I can't take all the credit.
