Hello and welcome to this wonderful month of August.
I am so excited to share today’s Currently Living with you all!
It is well known I am a sucker for prettifully designed spaces. Moreso, when it involves making adequate use of space.
Today, the lovely Tiffany, of Tiffany Leigh Interiors is taking us through the process behind her tastefully designed Toronto Studio. Enjoy!
Name: Tiffany Leigh
Hometown: Toronto, Ontario (Originally from Waterloo, Ontario)
The Decorative Process: My decorative process was definitely relaxed. When I moved into my studio apartment in September to begin earning my degree in Interior design, I really only had the main pieces of furniture (most of which were thrifted or IKEA…budget was tight). The space was lacking personality and a lived in feeling. Over time, I’ve been collecting art and tchotchskis from antique markets to create layered and interesting vignettes. It is still a work in progress! Right now I am collecting more pieces of art to create a gallery wall around my television. I may never be completely done tweaking…
Tips and Tricks to making the best use of space: My number one tip is that you can have accessories in a small space. I think a lot of people think that a small space should be clutter free, but this results in a space that lacks interest and will bore guests. Don’t be afraid to add in little knick-knacks that reflect your style and say something about who you are.
More Tips: Another tip for small spaces is to define your place into distinct zones but maintain an open feel. A rug can help you do this. I created my office space in the nook between the end of my bed and the wall. It feels like a little room in itself.
The first time I saw Tiffany’s studio, I was smitten. I love how she has clearly defined her space. Making adequate room for bedroom, living room and study in one! Amazing..and she is so talented too, from The DIY bench, to the canvas painting on the wall and the gold painted skull. Learn how to do them all on her blog!
Thank you Tiffany.
Keep up with MyCasita
