If you favor the new trend towards smaller homes and rooms, you should enjoy this SMALL SPACE DECORATING book. Why throw hard-earned $$$ heating oversize homes and rooms when it's a few rooms that we want to primarily be in? Using our resources wisely seems to be a new decorating trend that's here to stay.How do you decorate smaller homes and rooms attractively? What design and decor principles maximize space? This book answers these questions, and is one of the few books published recently on small space decorating. It's brimming with ideas and photos to illustrate the ideas so you can see how the principles look in a real room. The book organizes rooms by function with chapter titles: Live, Cook, Eat, Bathe, Sleep, Work, Multitask, Enter and Play. The Live chapter highlights topics such as furniture, storage, windows & light, walls & ceilings, color, art & photos, fabric & pillows and accessories.There are an average of 3-5 small space decorating tips per page with accompanying photos to illustrate the tips--the rooms tend to be more informal, casual and comfortable in styles ranging from contemporary to cottage, to traditional with a twist to modern or an eclectic combination of these.Interspersed throughout are eight case studies of actual homes in which small space principles have been used successfully. My favorite case study is a stylish New York City studio apartment. There's a skillful use of color with white covering the dominant surfaces--walls, sofa, bookcase, Parsons desk and bed--punctuated with gold, beige, black and leopard print accents. The result is sophisticated, fun and looks spacious. What interested me about the book is that the rooms didn't look cramped or small--they look natural and cozy.
