From the Back Cover
With more than one hundred stylish, innovative projects, this DIY guide serves up decorating ideas that fool the eye into believing a little lair is larger and more glamorous than its four walls.
A fireplace on wheels? A chandelier light by Xerox? A shrink-wrapped designer closet?
These are just a few of the clever projects in Living in a Nutshell, a DIY guide that helps small-space dwellers bring a greater sense of space, luxury, and personality into their homes. Here are fresh ideas for enhancing every living area of a tiny space—all are easy to do, emphatically affordable, readily portable, and big on style. Gorgeous photographs and a witty, encouraging, conversational text, supplemented by insider tricks of the trade and quick tips on every page, make it fun and simple to create a personal, welcoming home no matter how small or transitional it may be. An illustrated survival tool kit as well as extensive listings of untapped, off-the-beaten-track design resources and a select buying guide for the many products and materials used throughout complete this invaluable book.

There are some cute and simple DIY projects in here, which are great when you're on a budget but want to have those little details around the house that elevate your decor to a sophisticated level. And to my surprise the majority of the tips and DIY projects are actually quite time-less - although a lot of the decor in the photographs may date in a few years, the actual ideas presented are customizable to any style and time period, making this a valuable little book for anyone who wants to make the most of their small living space!
