Living Large in Small Spaces: Minimal & Modern Guest House

Once a detached two-car garage, this structure now serves as a guest house, complete with a living area, kitchenette and comfortable bed. To make the interior feel as spacious as possible, designer Kimberlee Gorsline painted the walls a crisp white and then layered in minimal, midcentury pieces.
