Overview

With a little imagination and creativity—and without hiring a professional—almost anyone can transform a small living space into a comfortable and stylish environment. Whether decorating a dorm room, an apartment, or a little cottage, what we strive for is a look and feel that expresses our individual personalities. Part style guide, part idea sourcebook, this handy volume—designed to meet the needs of real people with real budgets—is packed with smart ideas, basic design principles, and enough inspiration to get you off the sofa to make it happen.

In her lively, informative text, design guru Marisa Bartolucci takes readers inside 33 small homes from cities across the U.S. to reveal how a strong sense of style—rather than design know-how or unlimited resources—is the most effective tool for transforming an ordinary cramped living space into a smart yet functional private sanctuary.
