French Doors with Transoms

When trying to make a small room feel substantial, we find that light and architectural details go a long way.  Bookcases filled with interesting photos as well as good reads, give a room depth and interest.  If there is room for a small fireplace, the small room is complete.

Small rooms really don’t feel small at all if you can view the world beyond from a comfortable chair.  Architectural details, interesting textures, big windows and tall ceilings ensure a feeling of ample space.

A set of built-in organizers in a mud room can transform a small space.  Places for coats and shoes can be a strong design element, combined with interesting wallpaper and a dynamic floor this room feels just the right size.
