Sneak Peek 2: The Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces

Here's my second peek into nice, juicy largish versions of the pics that are even juicier and bigger in the new book coming out May 11. Over a year in the works, it's filled with 40 small rooms in New York, Brooklyn and Los Angeles, all photographed by Jim Franco.
Each chapter dissects one room of the home and pulls tips and resources so that you can DIY. This second peek features a loft bedroom in LA and a teeny tiny little bedroom in Bklyn. Enjoy!

Each of these pictures is part of a bunch of photos that focus on each room in detail.

The Four Poster Bedroom

From the book: "Since the mattress fills this room, everything is oriented vertically: the bed is raised up to allow for storage underneath, and shelves line one wall all the way to the ceiling. At night, for sleeping, the head of the bed is toward the window, but during the daytime, the bed is made up like a daybed in the other direction with a long headboard on the left wall. This crucial design detail keeps makes the bed seem grander, keeps the window as open as possible, and balances all of the storage/office space along the wall."

The Platform Bedroom

From the book: "Tiffany and Alex Hillkurtz's home in an old meat-tenderizing factory feels big, but most of the space is overhead, toward the immensely tall ceilings. When they moved in this was a raw space, and they decided that rather than fit their bedroom into the open living area, they would build up over an existing wall and create a bedroom nearly fifteen feet in the air."
