If you are a small home devotee and looking for ideas and styles suitable for a small space, this book helps you to think small. An array of styles are featured in spaces as diverse as a New York City studio to a Palm Beach maisonette to an upstate cottage, to a Brooklyn bachelor pad. Many of the homes are designers' own spaces.Top designers offer tips on how to decorate a small space. Some favorites:* "limit your number of gestures." Susan Ferrier* "Leave some breathing room." Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan* "One wild print all over the place enlarges a small space, makes it feel cohesive, and adds a big wow factor." Amanda Nisbet* "A tightly edited palette is important to make all the patterns work together." Krista Ewart* "...bring in a few overscale elements because these are the bold moves that make a room." Nick Olsen* "I always like dark color in a small room because it makes it look bigger." Mario BuattaSome designers recommend going dark in a small room, some suggest use a jewel tone color and some claim light walls are great. This book features small rooms with all of these so the viewer can decide which they prefer. Or, you may want a light, sunny bedroom and a dark library-study or the opposite. It definitely demonstrates that small has enough space to be very chic. Love Bill Brockschmidt's totally original 640 square foot mini-loft in mustard olive with turquoise accents and Zach Motl's studio in plaid of navy and gray.As designer Maureen Footer noted - her apartment is featured in here, too - "We have these great examples of living stylishly in small spaces: Stanley Barrows, Van Day Truex, Billy Baldwin - they had it an art form.
