I was recently introduced to the book Small Apartment Hacks by accomplished author Jenna Mahoney. This book is a compact, great resource when you are looking for quick and creative ways to decorate and entertain in a small space. Let’s face it… at times, we all wish we had just a little bit more space in our homes. This book gives clever tips on how to maximize every square inch of your home or apartment and make it the best, most functional that it can be! It gives us useful , fun ideas when entertaining with style in a small space. Even the cover already gets the wheels turning for dwellers in compact spaces…
Your sofa can double as book storage; your bicycle can become wall art when not in use; and your coffee table can double as a dog bed! Author and freelance writer Jenna Mahoney is currently the travel editor at Bridal Guide Magazine and has been a magazine writer for publications such as Allure and Redbook. She has also been an on line contributor for publications such as Elle and the Tory Burch blog.
I love when Jenna delves into the topic of storage, because we could all use more of it in our lives! She encourages the reader to make use of your wall space and think vertically. Shelving can be installed up to the ceiling, creating more space to store things and also giving the illusion of a taller ceiling. She also reminds us of the useful square footage behind a closet door! Purchase an over the door hanging system to store shoes and any small accessories.
One of my favorite parts of the book discusses procrastination! Just do it becomes the mantra that we need to embrace for any organization changes to occur in our homes. She encourages us to set dates for the cleaning and organizing. Once we are held accountable and the tasks are in writing, it gives us a plan of action and a schedule that might be easier to keep!
I love the Tolstoy quote she uses for this section:
“True life is lived when tiny changes occur.” – Leo Tolstoy.
The book is even in a small size, perfect to decorate your shelf with, too!
To start organizing your space and beginning your action plan, purchase this book HERE!
