DIY design book extols the virtues of small space living
IF living in a small space is your reality, this (small) book is for you. Mahoney takes the reader logically through the process of decluttering and organizing, offering decor solutions and even guidance on entertaining in a small space. There are obvious tips, such as double-duty furniture, thinking vertically for storage solutions and using optical illusions to create the look of more space. But there are also unexpected tips, such as recipes for entertaining, tricks for dealing with a messy roommate, the importance of plants and a nod to feng shui. Mahoney recognizes we’re not all as crafty as Martha Stewart — nor want to be — offering easy decor options and giving tips on keeping clutter at bay once we’ve conquered it. The book is available at Amazon.ca.
