Easy Home Upgrade: Turn Your Leftover Wrapping Paper Into Luxe Decor

0 comments

The holiday season is traditionally known as a time for present-wrapping and gift-giving. Less well known, but equally important? Tis the perfect occasion for interior decorating. Allow us to explain.

Charlotte Brown, a photographer who lives in a tiny 300-square-foot apartment on the Upper West Side, recently taught us all about big living in small spaces (you know we're always on the lookout for tips — check out these five NYCers who also know how to make petite perfect). In the newest production from SPACEStv, she shows us her charming bedroom, living room, and kitchen area — that’s right, three separate sections in one miniature apartment — filled with carefully selected art books, photo frames, furniture, and even pieces of coral! The best part about Charlotte's pad? The faux backsplash — not only does it look wonderful, but it’s also so easy to recreate. All you need is some wrapping paper and Mod Podge glue, and voilà!

SPACEStv has shown us some pretty impressive “Tiny, Eclectic, Amazing Spaces” before, but Charlott’s French Country chic pad has really blown us away. Peep Charlotte’s choice for her own wrapping paper backsplash as well as the rest of her sweet spot for endless inspiration.
