Decorating Small Spaces

Small Guest Room

Dark espresso walls and pattern mixing give this guest room a cozy feeling. "You might get tired of a bold print in the living area but it can make a tiny, less-used space exciting," says Loecke.

—A painted white floor and ceiling further open up the space and are more modern than stained wood or carpeting.

—Loecke deliberately chose a variety of furnishings, like the antique Chinese chest and the contemporary clean-lined daybed from westelm.com. "When you mix different styles, you get a comfortable, timeless look," he says.

—Pack a small room with lots of options and you'll live larger. This daybed serves as a retreat to curl up with a laptop or a book. The trunk stores linens and does double duty as a side table.
