"In a small space, you want to keep the bedding as simple as possible so it looks clean, calm and collected," he says.
Next to the bed, Nate used industrial shelves he found at a Paris flea market to create his mini desk. The shelving unit above the desk goes all the way up to the ceiling. "Take advantage of the height in a room that's a tight space otherwise," he says.
To give the bedroom more character, Nate replaced the ceiling fan with a vintage chandelier.
"If you have a small space, you can still make it great," he says. "And most of all, make it really comfortable."
