I’ve moved around a lot in my adult life, having lived between New York, Melbourne, and now London. After spending three years in the densely populated city of New York, I like to think I’ve become accustomed to small living spaces. (In fact, my first Manhattan apartment was so tiny I affectionately compared it to Harry Potter’s room under the staircase, and honestly, that was being generous.) So when I finally made the move to London, I already had several ideas on how I could maximise the inevitably small space I would eventually call home.
When it comes to tiny-flat living, interior decoration has to be strategic, so before making a purchase, I often think about whether an item will work to enhance a space. Mirrors are perfect for doing just that, as they tend to open up a room and make the environment feel more spacious.
