Small Urban Interiors: 500 Solutions for Living

small urban interiors

Small Urban Interiors is yet another in my library of small Sspace living books. Not a new book, it was published in 2002, but still a great book. Small Urban Interiors has less text than some of my favorites, but the photos make up for the lack of reading. The book is laid out differently in that the apartments are categorized by country. It is always fascinating to me to see dwellings in other countries. The book has blueprints, sizes and enough details to clearly describe each space.

The book covers mostly high-end custom construction. It is a great source for decorating ideas. The spaces are amazing. The book is all a bit highbrow and there seems to be a disproportionate number of dwellings in Spain. The author is an architect from Spain and it reads like a book written by an Architect, not that that is a bad thing.

Over all Small Urban Interiors is a good read and a nice addition to any small space library. I definitely recommend it although the content is mostly relevant for individuals likely to own and customize a space.
