Decorating small spaces can be tricky, especially if you love to use color and pattern. Fortunately, design expert Susanna Salk has a few tips that will help make outfitting a tiny space anything but boring.

Inspired by the idea of spending New Years Eve at home, in comfortable pajamasfloral pillow cases, Susanna recently designed a room in Holiday House NYC that perfectly illustrates some of her tried and true tips for turning petite spaces into impactful areas of the home.

Using a large patterned wallpaper in a small space helps the room come alive better than simply paint. A gentle repetition —; in my case, peacock feathers —; can delight and also soothe the eye and envelope a space. It feels scary and against instinct, but small spaces need big moments to feel worthy.

Susanna says, “;I’;d rather see big patterns of quieter color than big colors which can tend to overwhelm. At the end of the day, filling any sized space with things you love will look right simply because you’;ve decorated with confidence and whimsy. The worst thing you can do in small spaces is to decorate too safely.”;

An ideal way to add depth —; not to mention mystery —; to a small space is to use mirrors to reflect light around the room.

You don’;t want your pieces to loom over the scale of the room like it’;s the set of Gulliver’;s Travels, but by the same token, make sure every piece you do use is full of personality. To strike a balance, a room should be equal parts carefully edited and throwing caution to the wind!

Instead of throwing your old ties (or your dad's ties) into the Goodwill bag, try re-purposing them into cute and comfortable headbands. To make them, you will need a tie you are willing to cut up, and you won't need a sewing machine (you'll be hand-sewing for this project, although you can always try it with a machine).

Hugely popular, roller blinds must surely be the most simple and convenient way of dressing a window. Their virtually limitless adaptability means they are capable of fitting into any scheme. Comprising of nothing more than a sheet of fabric connected to a tube, some may think them primitive or perhaps lacking in oomph! Not so.
