Wowzers. Talk about a Swiss army home. This Soho Apartment is the creation of LifeEdited, a interior consultancy company who are dedicated to making the most out of small space. In only 420 square feet, they have been able to create what is essentially 1100 feet of actual usable space. Three beds, a 10 seater dining table, kitchen, computer, home cinema, bathroom and buckets of storage make for a remarkable use of space. As always, a few notes! -A lot of the YouTube and Reddit comments were along the lines of “that would be way too much effort to actually use”.

A vintage movie Poster – Which film you choose is, of course, entirely up to you. This iconic King Kong poster, from AllPosters is the epitome of 30s, pre-war Hollywood. There is absolutely no denying that older movie posters are much better than their modern counterpart; it was simply more of an art in itself back then.

Whilst perusing the interweb for interior design inspiration, I usually come across two kinds of interiors: practical solutions and crazy, mind boggling installations. It’s pretty rare for something to tick both boxes, which is exactly what this full-wall library does! What I like about this idea, which unfortunately I wasn’t able to source, is the balance between simplicity and grandeur. The idea is a relatively simple space-saver, but the execution is what makes it. In the picture, the shelves are clearly very ornate and made to a bespoke design, but there’s no reason you can’t do this for yourself on any budget. A few notes: -This looks great on an A-Frame in a loft, but that doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work elsewhere. It would just [&hellip
