Christopher Lowell's You Can Do It! Small Spaces: Decorating to Make Every Inch Countby Christopher Lowell
Synopses & Reviews
Christopher Lowell has done it again! In response to thousands of letters requesting a book on small-room decorating, the Emmy Award-winning star of the Discovery Channel's most popular decorating show applies his innovative thinking to the challenge of turning cramped quarters into a comfortable, stylish home. He takes the Seven Layers of Design system introduced in his first book one step further by applying it to small spaces and inspiring readers to create extraordinary rooms out of the ordinary.
With his trademark energy and innovation, Lowell guides us through two modular homes, one designed in a traditional style, the other in a more modern decor, but both intended to offer the reader a myriad of design options and ideas. The traditional home features a Nantucket-style master bath, a sunroom with faux stone walls, a French-influenced guest bedroom, and a separate dining room. The modern home contains a kitchen finished in sophisticated stainless-steel paint, a living room-guest bedroom partitioned with sliding bookcases, and a Zen master bedroom with a space-saving platform bed.
Room by room, Lowell tackles such problems as how to make the most of tiny master bedrooms, how to create several rooms from one, what to do with narrow hallways, how to conserve space by creating multipurpose rooms, and how to renovate a guest bathroom for under $100. Before and after pictures show how anyone can perform miracles just by "thinking outside the box." Once again, Christopher Lowell inspires readers to dream big, no matter how small their space.
Decorating to make every inch count.
Bringing his trademark "you can do it!" spirit to the challenge of spatial limitations, bestselling author Christopher Lowell triumphs in every room of the house, carving out space with clever uses of walls, ceilings, floors, and even the space between them.You won't believe the miracles Christopher Lowell can perform in cramped living rooms, tiny bedrooms, minuscule bathrooms, shoebox kitchens, and diminutive dens! Applying his Seven Layers of Design system to two modular homes, Lowell creates mystery, glamour, and practical solutions in every room of the house: mirror magic doubles the bedroom, foyer bookcases conceal the view of the living room beyond, and two-sided wall units maximize storage. With before and after photographs, tips for any decorating issue ("Don't build out; build up"), step-by-step projects, and inspiring looks with exciting color (Plum Loco) and bold furnishings (Mail Order Louis XVI), this book shows how to think big in tight quarters.
