Overview

A celebrity designer offers simple, smart solutions to small space quandaries
 
When someone says they live in a small house or apartment, the image that comes to mind is all too often negative—“cramped,” “cluttered,” or “confining.” But America’s leading small space designer, Libby Langdon, knows just how to counterthat stereotype. In Libby Langdon’s Small Space Solutions, she offers a practical, user-friendly guide to decorating small spaces so they look stylish, beautiful, and larger than their actual dimensions.

Libby provides hundreds of tips—or decorating “tricks of the eye”—for solving all small space challenges. Setting out from the premise that an inviting and yet functional space is achievable even on a tight budget, she delivers practicality and inspiration that’s affordable. She covers it all—from how to find the “theme” of your room to styling and arranging items in a wall unit, from how to go green (using plants) to layering your bed linens for a luxe look.

With step-by-step instructions, each chapter addresses the most common problems encountered in a particular space—living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, or hall—and presents real solutions. Hundreds of stunning full-color photographs illustrate various design ideas and transformed spaces. Libby also spells out the top ten mistakes people make in small spaces.
Whether you are an apartment dweller, first-time homeowner, or are just looking to downsize, Libby Langdon’s Small Space Solutions proves that living with less doesn’t mean living without luxury.

    more from this reviewer

    Extremely helpful

    When I forced myself to streamline my possessions and clutter this was one of the books I consistently consulted for editing and decorating advise. I used several of her ideas and love what My house looks like.

    very helpful

    there are very helpful and inexpensive tips/tricks. it was a quick read, but the book is littered with spelling/grammer mistakes which make it difficult to understand at times. there are quite a lot of helpful pictures, though i must say libby thinks very highly of herself because she is in most of the pictures when there is no real need for her to be.

    GREAT IDEAS!

    I was thinking, my apartment needs a change! I didn't have the budget for a whole new furniture and accessories and I was trying to figure out what to do. I came across "Small Space Solutions" and BANG , this is what I needed, a little help from LIBBY!Once she gives you the idea you just think, how come I didn't remember this on my own?
    she uses simple things that most people already have and makes a different and practical use of it. Different colors, shapes that make your space look bigger,pictures on the wall (that you make on your own) and "voala" same space you had but with a totaly different look! Bring change to your apartment on a reccession budget! I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS BOOK!
