SMALL LIVING ep.3 – Styling tips, ideas and DIY for small spaces

With travel restrictions and lockdowns in place across the world, we wanted to do something a little different. This is Small Living, a special lockdown series featuring a new interview with one of our favourite architects, as well as collaborations with our friends, designers and YouTubers who share in our passion for small living. They’ll be giving you tips on how better to style your home, how to care for your plants and how to make your own furniture.

In this episode:

01:00 Interior Designer Manuela Millan of Meanwhile in Melbourne shows us how to improve and style our home office while working from home.

04:18 Artist and maker Cristiana of Get Hands Dirty in Portugal, teaches us how to design and build our own furniture using simple tools.

09:36 Jason from Plant Society returns to show us how best to take care of our plants at home.

13:26 Our London contributor Celeste chats to award winning artist and designer Nina Tolstrup of Studiomama, and answers some of our audience questions.
