Tiny spaces with terrific design, these three small scale home interiors feature smart space saving solutions and zoning techniques that will maximise the potential of any compact living quarters. The clever storage and bespoke furniture pieces sit amidst crisp white and yellow decor schemes, which bring a cheerfully bright and airy feel to the lean square footage. Home number one features made-to-measure furniture that hugs the perimeter of the entire living space, and conceals optimum storage opportunities. The second tour is studio with stylish zoning around the bed, and an efficient workspace setup. The last studio apartment impressively squeezes in two whole dining areas, and one small yet luxurious yellow ‘bedroom’.

Every piece of lounge furniture harbours hidden storage solutions inside. The sofa has four separate drawers for organising belongings.
