Libby Langdon's Small Space Solutions
Secrets for Making Any Room Look Elegant and Feel Spacious on Any BudgetBook - 2009
When someone says they live in a small house or apartment, the image that comes to mind is all too often negative--cramped, cluttered, or confining. But America's leading small space designer, Libby Langdon, knows just how to counter that stereotype. In Libby Langdon's Small Space Solutions, she finally offers a practical, user-friendly guide to decorating small spaces so they look stylish, beautiful, and larger than their actual dimensions. Setting out from the premise that it doesn't take lots of money to achieve a warm and inviting atmosphere, she delivers practicality and inspiration that's affordable. Armed with a bit of basic design knowledge and a few of Libby's tricks of the trade, any small-space dweller can learn how to create gracious, inviting small-space homes that are also functional to a tee. Each chapter addresses the most common problems encountered in a particular space--living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, or hall--and presents solutions and sample layouts, as well as numerous color photos showing transformed spaces "before" and "after" that illustrate small-space design tips. Libby also spells out the top ten mistakes people make in small spaces, and provides step-by-step instructions for painting and hanging art. An invaluable resource for apartment dwellers, first-time homeowners, and anyone looking to downsize, Libby Langdon's Small Space Solutions proves that living with less doesn't mean living without luxury.
