You will be armed with the know-how you need to care for your plants, where to place them, how to propagate, how to find the right pot, and much more, and most importantly, how to arrange them so that they look their best.

Complete with demonstrative illustrations and photographs, Small Space Living offers more than 100 space-saving ideas from Roberta Sandenbergh, a.k.a the Small Space Architect. Sandenbergh will introduce you to the idea of space opportunities-untapped areas in every home that can be expanded for storage and organizational purposes. A space opportunity might be as simple as using an empty space under a stairway or above a doorway or as complicated as dividing your entire apartment for rental income. Each chapter addresses a different kind of space opportunity area, including closets, corners, walls, windows, ceilings, and floors. In these areas, you will be inspired by Sandenbergh's creative approaches to divided spaces, stacked spaces, empty spaces, mirrored spaces, and multipurpose furniture. Projects include: BATHROOM IN A CLOSET: It could save your marriage. OFFICE IN A CLOSET: Run an empire from your chair. DINING IN A CORNER: Make every meal cozy. BOOKCASE PARTITION: Gain a double function. SHOJI PARTITION: Create elegant privacy. BED OVER STORAGE: Use for kids, teens, and adults. SPIRAL STAIR POLE: Better than a ladder-more than a pole. CHAIRS ON THE WALL: Do what the Shakers do. SETTEE IN A WINDOW: Add space and glamor to a small room. DRESSING TABLE IN A WINDOW: Do your makeup with natural light. WALK-IN CLOSET UNDER STAIRWAY: Get rid of your "catch-all." SOFA INTO TABLE AND SEATS: Pop up a table for six. CABINET INTO TABLE: Pull out when guests arrive. INSTANT EAT-IN KITCHEN: Pull out a table and stools. Learn from the author's stories of her own designs for "small-by-choice" homes-for herself and for her clients-in which she tried to make the best possible use of varied living spaces. Allow Sandenbergh to help you create more space-efficient and attractive areas in your home whether you live in a studio apartment, a tiny home, or a larger home that needs more of a cozy feel.

Vintage Home is both a practical collector' s guide - what to look out for - and a celebration of the period. It covers both serious and costly designer creations, which sell in major auction houses worldwide, and cheerful mass-produced kitsch, which you can pick up in car boot sales, charity shops, flea markets and yard sales. It looks at objects from around the world that were made for every taste and budget. Designers in the twentieth century were driven by the possibilities of mass-production and excited by the host of new materials. The period is also infused with the importance of women after the First World War and the emergence of a youth culture, and the new market for modern, fashionable goods from the 1950s onward. Where the older generation were used to ' make do and mend' , the young embraced wholeheartedly the disposable society. They replaced the old with something new and fashionable, a taste epitomised by colourful plastic furniture and paper dresses. The consequence is a fabulous array of every type of object for the collector.

Each of the eleven tableaux is illustrated in full colour.
