Decorating a Small Space

So since I moved back to Boston, I’m living at my parents’ house because I can’t work right now (hence, you know, the move back to Boston). And I’m not living in my childhood bedroom – because that is in Maine and someone else is living in there now. My parents moved to Boston the summer before my senior year of college, and majorly downsized since my little sister was going to college that fall. So my bedroom is small, I share it with my sister when she is here, and it doesn’t have pretty much any personalization.

Well, let’s make that didn’t.

I took these built-in shelves next to my bed and filled them with things to make me feel more at home. And I definitely succeeded.

    I love that even though you have a very small space you made it your own. It may only be a few square feet – but now it FEELS like home to you and that's what matters. You decorated it really cute too 🙂
