Samantha Pleet Teaches Us How to Decorate Like a Pro
By looking at the pictures, you’d never guess that the adorable Greenpoint apartment that Samantha Pleet shares with her husband is only 650 square feet. The super-savvy clothing designer’s secret? These easy-peasy tricks that anyone can do. Who needs room to spare?
Get creative with your walls.
“Our bedroom has a forest theme, which started with our mural painted by Leon Ben.”
Spruce up your bed.
“What’s the point of a boring bed? We made our own out of birch trees.”
Play around with your bookshelves.
“We made our bookshelves from salvaged wood. We love that it creates the illusion of more space if you stack them all the way up to the ceiling like in an old library.”
Separate your space.
“Our dining room and living room share the same room, so we used furniture to divide the space while maintaining the openness. Our couches face our projector screen, which creates a little theater.”
Add some green.
“We have a lot of windows, which works great for our plants. Our little green friends give our apartment its tree-house vibe.”
