A fireplace on wheels? A chandelier light by Xerox? A shrink-wrapped designer closet? With its innovative, chic, and portable design approach, "Living in a Nutshell" is the go-to DIY resource guide for small space nesters who want to create a personal, charming home even if they feel like they live in a box. This book empowers the style, space, and cost-conscious with design ideas that are accessible, affordable, and actionable no matter how temporary and in limbo their humble habitat may be. It takes a noncommittal approach to design that won't hurt walls, windows, or floors, won't put a dent in the bank account by any stretch, and that readers can literally take with them when they move. This book is all about grand, stylish gestures for tiny spaces that are simple enough to make and do yourself. It includes decorating tricks that fool the eye into seeing and believing a little lair is larger and more glamorous than its four wallsall with a get-up-and-go flexibility that fits today's lifestyles.

From the living room to the bedroom, in the world of "Living In a Nutshell", there is no need for an expensive custom carpenter or architect, room conversions or rebuilds to uplift and transform a small space. Instead, readers will be inspired by an array of untapped, off-the-beaten-track design resources and insider tricks of the trade that will give them the courage and step-by-step noncommittal tips to tackle projects themselves. With more than 200 vivid color photographs and illustrations especially commissioned for the book, including dramatic before and afters of rooms and projects, readers can develop their own personal design style and create a beautiful home no matter how small or transitional it may be.
