Book Description

11 May 2010
Whether you inhabit a studio or a sprawling house with one challenging space, Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, co-founder of the most popular interior design website, Apartment Therapy, will help you transform tiny into totally fabulous.
 
According to Maxwell, size constraints can actually unlock your design creativity and allow you to focus on what’s essential. In this vibrant book, he shares forty small, cool spaces that will change your thinking forever.
 
These apartments and houses demonstrate hundreds of inventive solutions for creating more space in your home, and for making it more comfortable. Leading us through entrances, living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms, bedrooms, home offices, and kids’ rooms, Apartment Therapy’s Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces is brimming with ingenious tips and ideas, such as:
 
•   Shifting the sense of scale through contrasting colors
•   Adding airiness by using transparent collections
•   Utilizing the area under a loft bed for a kitchen and mini-bar
•   Tucking an office with chic vintage doors into an unused bedroom corner
 
In each dwelling Maxwell points out what makes the layout work and what adds style. Most of the “therapy” involves minor tweaks that can be accomplished on a limited budget, such as dividing a room with sheer curtains, turning a door into a desk, or disguising electrical boxes with art displays. An extensive resource guide, including Maxwell’s favorite websites for buying desks, open storage solutions, and much more, will help you turn even the tiniest residence into a place you are always happy to come home to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality 10 Jun 2011
Format:Hardcover
Lovely book with loads of ideas for small homes. Usually these types of books focus on large expensive homes so it was good that they were smaller and therefore more relevant to the ordinary person rather than the fabulously wealthy floating about in their huge mansions.

1.0 out of 5 stars not what I was expecting 9 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover
I was expecting the book would demonstrate ideas on how to utilise small spaces to their potential. It didn't provide any helpful ideas unfortunately. It's a cute looking book by cover only and that's what attracted me to it. I guess it's true, you can't judge a book by its cover.

2.0 out of 5 stars Big book of messy spaces 11 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was such a disappointment. The cover is great, then you look at in detail, and its quite cheap and messy.

I really thought it would be useful (even though I am renting) to help me get ideas to organise in small spaces too. If you like the messy, cluttered, fit as much junk into one small space, then this is the book for you.

Personally I like clean and relatively contemporary spaces but this book was obviously not the right choice for me.
