Libby's tricks on how to use light, draperies, glass and mirrors are my favourites, they have done wonders for my little flat. I am thinking about one room at the time so, I am focused on different spaces and needs each time I read the book. I keep coming back and reading it all again and again. Each time there is a new finding that can fix a little problem that has been bothering me. Some chapters are divided by room use: bathroom, living room. kitchen, but if you live in a small space, those rooms are not always well defined so, read it all and adapt the ideas. I highly recommend it!
The biggest problem with people who buy books about decoration is that they expect to find THEIR houses pictured in the makeovers. That simply won't happen! If you don't read, and only look at pictures, you won't know what is behind the purpose of that picture and can miss important tricks that could be applied to your own house for your benefit.
I have spent the last 20 years in various spaces under 700 sq feet, and Libby knows ALL the tricks and taught me a few new ones. Her asthetic leans towards the polished and sophisticated while keeping warmth and comfort. She shows both average apartment before and afters and full "show" home decorating. There is something for most everyone here.
Thank you Libby, I look forward to your next book.
This book is well worth the money just for the tips alone so I highly recommend it - small space or not. The tips are cost conscious but effective.
However, the Kindle Edition has too many typos and missing photos to warrant the $9.99 spent for the convenience. Very distracting and even more frustrating. What a disappointment.
