Synopsis

Dreaming Small is a celebration of 22 jewel box homes, each marked by a sense of style that marries eclecticism, practicality, beauty, and livability. In addition to quintessential bungalows, classic Spanish-style casas, and Tudor fantasies designed and built largely by anonymous master craftsmen, the book explores the possibilities that exist in a group of mostly unpublished gems by legendary architects Irving Gill, Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, and Paul R. Williams. Each under 2000 square feet and primarily pre-war, and shown in brilliant new photography specifically commissioned for this book, these delightful abodes are models of rich diversity and inspired living. Some homes featured are period-perfect time capsules, harkening back to the '20s, '30s, and '40s, while others are wildly re-imagined recreations that are entirely of today. In an age where many are downsizing, this book will be welcomed: a quality, small house is nothing if not manageable - it can be artfully livable, as well, as demonstrated here.

While showcasing a mix of architectural styles, the book, at its heart, emphasizes light, bright, and inspiring interiors that are beyond distinct architectural styles and are filled with ideas for the home. The trend of reviving old houses will continue to grow steadily and this book will be inspirational for those looking to do it right.
