Apartment Therapy released their Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces on May 11th.
Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, the founder of AT (and regular contributer to the HGTV show Small Space, Big Style) has become a leader in the design world, in part due to his ipso-facto expertise in tiny homes. For four years he and his wife (and their baby!) shared a 265-square-foot Manhattan apartment - So he knows what he's talking about. His website has become something of a Bible in the design-blogosphere and has expanded to include sister-sites revolving around food (The Kitchn), green living (re-nest), techie stuff (Unplggd) and kidstuff (ohdeedoh). Each is a great resource - I find myself regularly searching the archives for tips and tricks on everything you can imagine.
I received a copy of the book for participating in their Small, Cool 2010 contest. I didn't think "International" applicants were allowed to win anything, so this was a terrific surprise!
The book is great, filled with beautiful photos and small-space ideas out the whazoo. I can't wait to take it to the cottage and spend some gin-soaked afternoons perusing its pages.
Thanks, Apartment Therapy! You can get your copy here!
