Sara Emslie embraces the positive aspects of living in a compact home and explores design and style solutions to the practical issues of living with limited space. In the first chapter, Elements of Design, Sara tackles clever design and planning details and discusses how to make the most of any small home. Then, in Elements of Style, she gives thought to decorating solutions and style ideas for a compact interior, considering storage, furniture and display. Next, Sara visits a variety of real-life beautifully small spaces, taking an in-depth look at imaginative treatments for pocket-sized interiors and showcasing tiny homes with lots of character. These include a terraced 'two-up, two-down' worker’s cottage, a miniscule Parisian pied-a-terre, a tiny studio apartment with a clever mezzanine that incorporates a bathroom and a pint-sized coastal hideaway. Each case study has a detailed floor plan and measurements.
