small space solution [seperation by tile]

I adore this eat in kitchen! I just love the blue and white tiles and the way they create the appearance of separation between the cooking and dining areas--a great small space solution.

I love the pattern on the tile. So pretty it really takes the kitchen to another level. I think in small spaces it's always key to take a chance. Use a bold paint color or a busy pattern that you might not put elsewhere. It really makes the room look special. People are shocked when they enter my tiny bathroom and see that it is painted black, but I always get the response of, " I would never think to do that, but I love it."

Wow! That really cool. I love those sort of "italian" patterns in deep blue and white. Pretty!

The blue and white remind me of Holland and their skill with tile! *Sighs* beautiful!

That tile is lovely! My only small space solutions are good lighting and mirrors... I clearly need to expand my repertoire!

I love this!!
I think too often in a small space, people tend to under-do it. They keep things light. To me, that amplifies the small space. Do something grande and bold.

I would think it'd look too busy, but it's actually beautiful. Great find.

wunderbug said...

fantastic solution - and i love those tiles!

my lil solution is firstly, to keep things scaled appropriately - condo-sized couches in a condo-sized .. well, condo.. are best.

and no clutter! i like to create a clean line of sight from one end to the next - it always helps small things feel bigger!
