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.

    Wow! A very inspiring book indeed.

    We are in the process of moving into a NYC apartment and was in need of some inspiration on paring down earthly belongings and convincing ourselves that we can live in apartments under 600 sq. ft.! The book with its cool write-ups and wonderful pictures really was helpful...We can do it! NYC, here we come!
