Pick your favorite stuff now! Just kidding....kind of.

Most of it is in the dresser. I have rolling plastic bins under my bed for coats, sweaters, and purses/bags. I keep scarves in the yellow basket by the fireplace and shoes/belts in a shoe holder on the back of my bathroom door. It's a tight fit but it makes you shop smart!

Good luck!

I thought the same thing before I moved in. In fact, after I moved all my furniture in ( I initially had the bed/sofa locations switched and was using the bookshelves as a room divider), I realized that dividing up the space would close it up too much and block light from traveling to all corners of the room.

After this realization that I was truly living in one room and couldn't fake otherwise, I had a little mini freak-out. Not only did I have to make one room interesting enough that I wouldn't get board with it, I had to become okay with all parts of my life being exposed to visitors.

After living in this space 2.5 years, I've come to take that last realization as a metaphor to apply to the rest of my life. If there is something in my life that I'm trying to hide, I look at it and question why. Because of this I've thrown out a lot of collected junk (both physically and mentally) in the past few years and when I come across gems, I try to showcase them in an appealing way.

You come to really get to know yourself when you live in a tiny place. And you have to get comfortable letting others see it as well. Sorry for the ramble.... but it's been a fun journey and I love to share it! Thanks ME!
