In this vibrant book, he shares forty small, cool spaces that will change your thinking forever. nbsp; These apartments and houses demonstrate hundreds of inventive solutions for creating more space in your home, and for making it more comfortable. Leading us through entrances, living rooms, kitchens and dining rooms, bedrooms, home offices, and kids' rooms, Apartment Therapy's Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces is brimming with ingenious tips and ideas, such as: nbsp; *nbsp;nbsp; Shifting the sense of scale through contrasting colors *nbsp;nbsp; Adding airiness by using transparent collections *nbsp;nbsp; Utilizing the area under a loft bed for a kitchen and mini-bar *nbsp;nbsp; Tucking an office with chic vintage doors into an unused bedroom corner nbsp; In each dwelling Maxwell points out what makes the layout work and what adds style.
