Domino Magazine has a great Galleries section on their website, with loads of inspiring spaces to look at for ideas – these are a few of the ones I particularly liked while browsing the small spaces gallery.

These are all amazingly inspirational. I think I want to repaint! I'm loving white so much lately.

I just repainted my kitchen white recently and am amazed at how serene and large it feels. White is amazingly effective, but I think it's easy to forget this when so often it's a default colour.

Oh this is one cute small space - my favorite is the second last photo with the flowers on the round white table near the door - fresh and fun without being too pretty

You don't happen to know who makes that bed, do you?
