City Living: Small Space Decorating Tips

I’ve been living in the city for eight years now. Within that time, I’ve learned how to hail cabs without having to show too much thigh, dodge the advances of creepy dudes and decorate a bitchin’ apartment.

Maximizing your small space’s decorating potential isn’t as difficult as you might think. You just need to think outside of the box and have a bit of fun with it. Here are some decorating ideas to get you started.
