Photographed by Ida Hariri.
The holidays are a time to fully flex your decorating muscle and go all-out with all the festive thingamabobs you've been stashing all year.

When there's barely any room for a dining table, where on earth can you put a Christmas tree?
Lucky for all of us small-space dwellers out there, Pinterest is the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to ideas to overcome the lack of square footage. We've put together eight handy tips — from Christmas tree alternatives to visual tricks — to help you dress up your tiny pad this holiday season in jolly style.
