How you’d describe it: Bohemian, comfy, modest
If your room were a food, it would be …: Tomato soup with bacon grilled cheese, because it’s a classic that makes you feel warm inside with a little extra flavor!
 
Den with chair and credenza
 
Leigh’s eclectic space proves that, when it comes to interior design, the only limitation is your imagination. While her space offered some challenges, she knew how to find furniture that fit and made a statement. Now it serves as both a relaxing retreat and an occasional guest room for family and friends.
 
Tour her den to find out how to make the most of your space and furniture.
 
Den with chair, TV stand and ottoman
 
Give it a purpose
 
Leigh’s comfortable crash pad begins with a fun, patterned Marley Accent Chair nestled comfortably against the back wall. It’s a small space, but the light filtering in from the window opens the room and creates a great reading/lounging atmosphere. The mix of colors, patterns and materials are purposefully eclectic to make it casual and cozy.
 
“I love the chair’s clean lines and midcentury modern feel. It complements the Harvey Park Entertainment Credenza perfectly!”
 
Accent chair and side table
 
The accent chair is paired with a multipurpose stool/side table. Leigh particularly likes the versatility of her stool/side table.
 
“I love that it can be easily moved around and used as a seat in another room or a foot rest, a table for food or drinks and more. Plus, it’s small enough to push into a corner when you need it out of the way!”
 
Den with couch, sheepskin blanket, chair and ottomans
 
A den isn’t a den without a place to lounge. While her chair is great for reading and soaking in the sunlight, Leigh added a sofa for a place to really stretch out. She says the sheepskin on the sofa and the soft, squishy pillows make you feel like you’re wrapped in a hug while relaxing. It also makes for a great sleeping area for guests who visit often.
 
TV Stand and games
 
Just because a space is small, it doesn’t mean it can’t be used to entertain! Leigh’s retro-chic Entertainment Credenza hides board games for get-togethers and books for quiet nights in.
 
“I was immediately drawn to the credenza because of the style of it and the lines on the front doors. But it’s also a functional piece with the shelving inside of it and the multiple cutouts in the back for entertainment purposes.”
 
Candles and books on a TV stand

After the furniture was in place, Leigh began accessorizing her space with everything from blankets to books. Her credenza is covered in tastefully placed books and candles, making her den all the more inviting.
 
EXPERT TIP: Hygge is all about cozy must-haves. Don’t forget the candles and books.
 
Credenza, TV and painting with plants
 
Leigh chose to frame her credenza by two large plants that add some much-needed greenery to the space without dominating it.
 
Den with chair and couch
 
Leigh’s den offers a lot of things — a creative use of a small space, a reminder to try eclectic combinations and a way to achieve coziness by embracing simplicity. Earth tones go with vibrant colors, and vibrant paintings offset white-washed walls to create a space that suits both her needs and the needs of her guests. Leigh proves that you shouldn’t let a small space limit what’s possible, and the smallest den can be an enviable bohemian crash pad.
