I love me a good design book, so when the Ulysses Press asked me to review their book, Small Apartment Hacks: 101 Ingenious DIY Solutions for Living Organization and Entertaining by Jenna Mahoney, I thought, why not?
Looking for a graduation gift? This book would be perfect for guys AND gals!
Sadly, this book arrived in December. I then gave it to my college attending daughter to see if she could get some ideas from it. She was too busy to look it over, so I asked for it back! She is hoping to get her own place again this fall, and most likely it won't be furnished like her last place. I hope we can gleam some ideas from this book.
This book is ideal for someone starting out, from tips on what you need to set up your place - how to set up double duty furniture; organize - what to toss and keep; how to shop for second hand furniture and how to entertain - even with several must-try recipes! There is even a list of must have clothing items for guys and gals. Nothing is overlooked inside!
Even though this book is geared towards those who dwell in apartments and are starting out, I think us seasoned home owners/ renters would find it a valuable resource as well.
