Compact Solutions for Small Spaces

The online community has been abuzz on the tumblr-esque site, pinterest, and I can understand why.  If you're looking inspiration on just about anything, I strongly suggest you give the site a look.

Here are a couple things that I thought was interesting to begin with (yes, this might be my blogging inspiration for the moment):

This idea probably isn't anything new but it's still a pretty neat idea.  The original post is from the Martha Stewart website (link here) which is where I borrowed the images for the above image for the purpose of this post.  I love how the bookcase is neatly tucked away into a corner and opens up revealing a functional office (or as pictured above -- a craft area and storage).  Those are 2 individual same size bookcases joined together with hinges kind of like vintage wooden gift boxes.

I'm not too sure if this piece of furniture is an actual product but wouldn't it be cool? (link here)  Definitely not your conventional sofa bed though.  This would be nice to have in a guest room and spiced up with some bright coloured cushions too.


  1. I want one of these!! That's so good for guests.

  2. Haha. The transformer couch. LOL!

  3. I like the idea of using hinged bookcase and turn in a space for office or craft space..:)

  4. Yup. It's so unobtrusive and everything has it's place on the inside. It doesn't even have to be closed either. You can just have a hinged bookcase as the actual office or craft space. No need to close.

    1. Perfect idea. I nee a small work space myself..:)
