Elegant Fancy Small Home


The words ‘elegant’ and ‘small’ are not always seen together in a sentence. But this is quite an elegant and fancy small home. What a treat.

But in our house tour today, you’ll find that those two fit well together, and that a small-spaced home can be easily described as ‘elegant’ (and then some).

small home front door entrance

Grand entrance, anyone? This small home is definitely designed to change our view of small spaces. A row of built-ins offers storage and display space just inside the front door. By painting the inside of the bookcase black, it gives the wall a recessed look. A large, custom fish-eye mirror completes the look.

Oh, those sofas are definitely calling my attention. I love them!  Any family will love to have this living room! This decorating scheme incorporated family pieces, including two red sofas, two large Empire Era chests, and a pedestal table. Blue accents calm the space and are the perfect companion to the vibrant red sofas. A mix of patterns on the pillows and chairs infuses the room with a youthful attitude.

The fireplace. It just looks so modern and absolutely creative. The artwork above the mantel is from the owner’s childhood home. They were just waiting to find the perfect spot for it.


Check out the simplicity of the living room below.

Here’s the family room. Oh wow! A mix of geometric, organic, and ethnic patterns gives this room a playful persona.  The homeowners chose to create a casual space for relaxation and covered existing sofas in durable brown corduroy.

In this small space, this kitchen’s crisp white cabinets, dark wood floors, and beautiful granite countertops create an ultimate kitchen any cook would love. Okay. Do you remember what I said earlier? Elegant and small in one sentence?

Here you go. Elegant small kitchen. Based on the photo alone, I think we would never have guessed that this kitchen is from a small home / apartment. I mean, would you look at that? This is the dream kitchen.

small home dining nook

Oh, I love the dining nook! In the kitchen, every surface and fabric can be wiped with a sponge, including faux-leather pads on the banquette, laminated David Hicks fabric on pillows, and a Roman shade in the dining nook. The antique dining table was a wedding gift.

small home master bedroom

Amazing! A disco ball-inspired chandelier takes center stage in the master bedroom, where chartreuse cut velvet covers the headboard, Roman shade, and bed skirt. I love the fact that every room in this small home is somehow ‘themed’
small home kids bedroom

The kids’ room is absolutely stylish! Velvet twin headboards, bed skirts, and a Roman shade boast pretty green hues in this super-sophisticated kids’ room.


Oh, lovin’ the desk nook below.

Sweet and tidy! A built-in desk area opposite the dining nook is command central for this family.
