Beautifully Small; Clever Ideas for Compact Spaces
Title: Beautifully Small; Clever Ideas for Compact Spaces

ISBN: 9781849755528

From the Publisher:

In Beautifully Small, Sara Emslie embraces the positive aspects of living in small spaces and offers creative design and style solutions to the practical problems associated with limited living space.

  •  In Chapter 1: Inspiration, Sara draws inspiration from truly tiny spaces such as boats and caravans as well as her own home - a diminutive workman's cottage in Richmond, London.
  •  In Chapter 2: Elements of Design, she discusses how even the most straightforward planning decisions can be complicated by the constraints of small spaces and suggests clever design solutions.
  • The third chapter, Elements of Style, explores ideas for making compact interiors work through creative styling and decoration.
  • In Chapter 4, a series of case studies takes a closer look at imaginative treatments for pocket-size interiors, showcasing a variety of tiny spaces including a terraced 'two-up, two-down' worker's cottage, a tiny studio with a clever mezzanine that incorporates a bathroom and a pint-sized coastal hideaway.

From Builders:
