Measuring Up

Bigger isn’t Always Better : How to maximize your space with style

At Coveted Home we offer many pieces that will help make your living space more efficient, comfortable, and stylish. Unfortunately, downsizing or rightsizing (e.g., choosing to live in a smaller home that suits your needs) isn’t as easy as moving all of your stuff into a smaller space. Some of your pieces will fit right in, but others will need to be updated. Here are some decorating tips and product ideas that will help you create the perfect environment to suit your lifestyle. Need more ideas? Visit us on the Country Club Plaza to discuss design solutions for your challenging space.

Get More Bang for your Buck with Multipurpose Pieces

A well chosen arm chair is a must have for any small home. Find a good place for an extra small chair in your living room or bedroom and you’ll always have extra seating for visiting and dining with guests.

Ottoman/Bench/Cocktail Table combos are great multifunctional pieces for small spaces. Add a tray on top of this one for displaying objects or holding drinks and there will still be room for seating or kicking up your feet.

Open Up

Exposed legs on furniture can create an illusion that the room is actually larger than it is. Remember this when choosing large pieces like sofa, chairs, and cabinets.

A Bright Idea

Floor task or arc lamps are perfect for putting in a corner near your sofa or favorite reading chair. They won’t take up much room and add another useful and beautiful layer of light to any room.

Go Bold, Go Big

Just because your room is small doesn’t mean your art has to be. Try going with a large print or original piece of art to make a big impact in your small room.

Consider Your Lifestyle

Don’t feel like you have to always choose smaller pieces – sometimes having one large sofa/sectional might make more sense than multiple sofas or chairs. However, if you won’t need lots of seats feel free to go with a smaller sofa and chair. BSC has every sofa available in a small (72”) version like this one.

The Oldest Trick in the Book

You’ve probably heard it before, but a well placed mirror really can help make a space feel more open. Try placing a mirror on a wall facing a window to reflect the light into the room. A mirror hung over a mantle or sideboard will create the illusion of a window to another room.

Conscience Living

Ethically Sourced, Fair Trade, Earth Friendly, Sustainable, and Green are all words that get tossed around a lot in todays saturated, consumer market. A lot of us are familiar with these terms when it comes to buying things like cleaning supplies, where the options for organic and non-toxic are becoming more and more accessible. But how do these trendy words translate when it comes to decorating your home? At Coveted Home we take great pride in seeking out product lines that are in line with our values. Here are some of the brands we are proud to work with, giving you the opportunity to dwell in a more natural home.

How We Do Pull Ups

January brings resolution, rejuvenation, and rock hard abs? Not sure about the third one.

Most people use this time of year to make goals pertaining to fitness, weight loss, eating right, etc. Most of these goals would involve working out; maybe doing a pull up or two. Instead of pretending to know anything about eating right or shedding that holiday weight (we all know I am clueless), let us focus on another type of pull up. I have picked out some of my favorite pull up tables that are small, portable, and versatile. Pull up tables are perfect for any space; use them as extra surface area for drinks when hosting or use it to house your martini while taking that well deserved evening bath. And they are great for super small apartments, like mine!

  • I love the simplicity of the Allure Pull-Up Table from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. Travertine stone top? Yes, please.
  • Looking for something rustic in nature? Incorporating a natural piece like this Oak Tree Stump Table would be a perfect fit.
  • The Celeste Accent Table from Arteriors has been a favorite of mine for some time. Sculptural with a vintage flair.
  • Very Hollywood Regency, the Marco Side Table from Worlds Away is available in gold or silver leaf. Sleek. Stunning.
  • I am sucker for yellow. The Gemma Lacquer Side Table from Selamat Designs is 20 layers of lacquered perfection.

All of the tables listed (with the exception of the Oak Tree Stump) are available to purchase through Coveted Home. Stop by the shop and let us help you design your life!

Client Work: Master Bedroom

Just over a year ago this warm, personable and spunky woman walked into Coveted Home. She expressed how she had been trying to redecorate her and her husbands master bedroom for some time but things weren’t moving fast enough for her and she was ready to get it done. We hit it off and being a woman who means business, she hired me on the spot.

She has a lovely home and at the time was full of antiques and very traditional furniture. Having lived with this style for most of her life, she was ready for a change. We wouldn’t be getting rid of everything, but bringing in modern touches throughout the house was the goal. The master bedroom was a bit of a different story though. The scale of the room is very large and they had been living with a queen size bed and two small antique side tables on either side. We needed to up the ante in this room and I have to say I truly love how this one turned out.

We kept two of her beautiful antique dressers–one you see here in the photo and the other is on the wall opposite the bed.
