Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a little imagination, creativity, and help from House Beautiful, anyone can turn an apartment—whether dorm room or duplex—into a lovely home thats brimming with personality. Featuring almost 300 photos, a dozen floor plans, countless tips, and numerous sidebars, this chunky and spiffily designed handbook covers a wide variety of styles: a charming studio, a one-bedroom filled with mid-century modern furniture, a small apartment that doubles as a workspace, an all-white pied à terre, and a spacious flat that resembles a grand manor. There are easy-to-implement designs for every room, suggestions for accentuating the positive (moldings) while downplaying the negative (exposed pipes), and expert advice on dealing with a tiny kitchen, decorating high-style at low-cost, displaying collections, storage, and entertaining.

Synopsis:

This updated edition of House Beautiful's classic The Apartment Book features a fully revised interior design and new photos but retains its focus on making your first apartment a showpiece of style. Arranged room-by-room, the book surveys a wide array of decorating techniques, showing professionally decorated rooms and real-life examples of before-and-after projects. Informative sidebars provide the how-to for storage, lighting, painting, entertaining, hanging art, and more. Available in hardcover for the first time, The Apartment Book will inspire you to make your living space personal, upscale, functional, and beautiful!
