Well, duh.

This is one of those, "Oh duh, why didn't I think of that?" moments. I was going through Design Sponge's Sneak Peek of London-based illustrator Debbie Powell's home when this image caught my eye. It's a simple solution to a small space with an inconvenient nook -- just shove your furniture in front of it anyway! I know that if I had Debbie's bedroom, I would have tried just about every furniture configuration to get all my things to fit, but it would have never occurred to me to just let the bed hang over the nook, and fill the space behind it with a side table. It's so simple and obvious! The rest of Debbie's apartment is adorable too. Go to Design Sponge to check it out! Via Design Sponge.


  1. It's crazy how it goes against all of our instincts but it works so well!

  2. I know, right? They do say that necessity is the mother of invention... and of cool furniture arrangements! :-P

  3. I am loving your blog! I asked Jen "Flash" Andrews for some studio living tips and she sent me your way. While it looks like we're going to be able to score a one bedroom instead of a studio I am very stoked to keep coming here for apartment tips!
