Furniture Arrangement - Sometimes Miniature Skills Come in Handy

Finally after more than a month I am back online!

My boyfriend and I have just moved into a new (tiny) apartment.  The spaces in the apartment are awkward, and it was hard to know how best to place the furniture. My boyfriend had the idea of using my little furniture and making a mock up of the strangely shaped room (using some of the copious amounts of cardboard from the moving boxes). I was more than happy to oblige.

Finally my miniature furniture and construction skills had came in handy for an actual practical purpose!

I have a lot of mid century danish furniture, and so my little 1960s Lundby furniture was the perfect miniature substitute. 

We both had fun moving the furniture around and arguing over the best placement.

I was pleased with the result.


  1. I love it! Both full size and small!

  2. Hello Emily,
    Great job placing the furniture. Miniatures make life easier ;)
    I wish you all the best and ridiculous amounts of happiness in your new home.
    Big hug,

  3. see..:) minis do help in real life too! i did the same as you with a room in my flat...couldn't decide where to put the mini-version quickly helped! :)

  4. I love it! LOL Minis to the rescue again! lol Your 1:1 rooms is very,very nice...thanks to minis! :-D

  5. How clever!! And your real life room looks great!

  6. A great idea,I know my husband would be very pleased if I adopted your tactic. When we move (which is quite often) we seem to spend the first few days moving the furniture (the real big stuff!) around, always at my instigation and often it ends up back in the original position! It's probably reasonable grounds for divorce actually ;)

    Your new apartment looks stunning, I wish you many happy times there.

  7. Que genial idea usar los muebles minis para decorar vuestro apartamento. Se ve precioso, y muy bien decorado. Felicidades!!

  8. That is what architects do isn't it, clever idea and your new apartment looks great as a result, lots of windows and love the wood floors.

  9. What a great solution and what Fabulous Results! Your real life apartment is sensational and although it is small it packs a powerful punch! Your preplanning with the miniatures ROCKS!


  10. Cute idea! :D Nice apartment by the way! Glad you are settled again :)

  11. Hi Emily,
    I love how it turned out and I want to give you some advice because I see you have a space for two bar stools at the kitchen not buy bar stools..I did when we had a kitchen counter and we never ate at the dining table it was like working at a Diner all I had to do was pass food to him (now he has a man cave but thats a different story) learn from my mistake :)


  12. Great idea! I've used my miniatures to convince the hubs of unusual design ideas before--it works.

  13. Now, all of a sudden I'm thinking cutest couple award!!

    I think thats adorable.


  14. Very tasteful indeed! Well done dear!

  15. Excellent idea - the results show that it really works. Your apartment is very attractive and looks to be sunny and comfortable. I sometimes wish I could go back to the days when we only had enough 'stuff' to live in an apartment :)
