Have hanging shelves and temporary wallpaper been flooding your Pinterest feed as of late? According to Pinterest’s trend forecast, which offers insight on the most searched and saved ideas right now, small-space decor is on the rise. This is one seasonal trend we can’t help but happily approve.

While other of-the-moment cravings include herb-infused water and curly bangs, chic solutions for tiny dwellings have caught our full attention.
