= –1. START CLEAN + WHITE
An all-white room will make your space feel brighter and bigger than it really is. Zio & Sons went the extra mile and pickled Anthony’s floors white for a cozy Scandinavian vibe.–
2. ADD A HUGE MIRROR
The oversized vintage mirror creates an illusion of higher ceilings and opens up the room. Using your wall space to its full potential is key!
Hit the flea markets, and maybe you ll be lucky as Anthony. His vintage folding farmhouse table is amazing hard to believe it pulls-out and opens-up to seat six people.
4. LITTLE SHELVES ADD VALUABLE SURFACE SPACE
Coffee tables + consoles with extra shelves will double your surface space for storage + display. Zio & Sons picked an extra narrow console for Anthony’s entryway, but its still plenty big enough for dropping keys + sunglasses.

6. PRIORITIZE COMFORT
Comfort was a priority for Anthony, so Zio & Sons transformed the entire back wall of his living room into a space for lounging. The big sofa in a small space seems counterintuitive, but here it works! – story by Jake Lemkowitz
