As a stylist and content editor at RH, I'm constantly hunting for gorgeous inspo and shopping picks to feature in trending ideas stories (and bring home to my budget small apartment). It's my job to know what's hot and what's most definitely not so that I can share the freshest picks with you. And as a stylist, I'm a passionate believer in thinking creatively to glow up the limited" space. Leave the pricey, structural transformations to the architects, please — I'm all about the tiny nooks and final touches that'll elevate your home.
Let's get personal: Having recently(ish) moved into my apartment (called the Bijou Burrow) with absolutely no built-in storage — literally none — I've had to think hard about how to transform my bland space into a storage-savvy and personality-filled sanctuary. I'm sure you can relate. And with a tenancy agreement as tight as Spandex when it comes to "damaging" or altering any of the existing walls, fittings, and fixtures (boring) I've really had to switch up my interior style game and make the little things count all the more.
If you're short on space, here are the picks I'd suggest to decorate a studio apartment that'll quickly upgrade your space. They're small and budget-friendly but make a major impact.
