From the Inside Flap
A celebrity designer offers simple, smart solutions to small space quandaries

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 counterthat stereotype. In Libby Langdon’s Small Space Solutions, she offers a practical, user-friendly guide to decorating small spaces so they look stylish, beautiful, and larger than their actual dimensions.

Libby provides hundreds of tips—or decorating “tricks of the eye”—for solving all small space
challenges. Setting out from the premise that an inviting and yet functional space is achievable even on a tight budget, she delivers practicality and inspiration that’s affordable. She covers it all—from how to find the “theme” of your room to styling and arranging items in a wall unit, from how to go green (using plants) to layering your bed linens for a luxe look.

With step-by-step instructions, each chapter addresses the most common problems encountered in a particular space—living room, dining room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, or hall—and presents real solutions. Hundreds of stunning full-color photographs illustrate various design ideas and transformed spaces. Libby also spells out the top ten mistakes people make in small spaces.
Whether you are an apartment dweller, first-time homeowner, or are just looking to downsize, Libby Langdon’s Small Space Solutions proves that living with less doesn’t mean living without luxury.
