The Best Small Space Decorating Books
This isn’t to say that looking for ideas online isn’t a great way to go, of course…it’s fast and easy and there’s a myriad of choices.
It’s simply that when I relax at the end of a busy day with a cup of tea or a glass of wine, I will most often reach for one of my favorite decorating books!
And each time I look through them I almost always see something new or in a different perspective. I might be looking at window treatments or rugs or wall decor…so that’s what my eyes will focus on.
Apartment Therapy – Complete and Happy Home. I’ve already talked about how much I love the Apartment Therapy website and newsletter. Now you don’t have to be online to browse their suggestions. This will become a favorite resource, for sure. They have another book called The Big Book of Small Cool Spaces
Small Space Organizing – A Room by Room Guide to Maximizing Your Space. The author, Kathryn Bechen, is a well-respected journalist living in San Diego who blogs about organizing and home decor. This book is also available for Kindle (I don’t have a Kindle but if you do, you’re sure to want to add this. Just think…you can browse the pages anywhere!
Better Homes and Gardens publishes several books on small space decor. New Decorating Book, 10th Edition (Better Homes and Gardens) (Better Homes and Gardens Home)is a good choice with sensible, down-to-earth suggestions throughout.
These are favorites of mine, but there are so many available that you’re sure to find exactly the resource you’re looking for. I have a couple of Martha Stewart books on Holiday decor, too, that I can rely on every single year.
