Staging pro Cheryl Eisen transformed a condo’s underutilized gallery into a more functional area for working and eating. Four design-smart sleights of hand make the tight space seem roomier: a narrow, custom-size table; white paint; mirrors that seem to widen the space; and art that pulls the eye in.
Borrow this idea: Buy a canvas and create a similarly simple but arresting piece of geometric art, or tweak it to incorporate your favorite colors.
