DREAMING SMALL: INTIMATE INTERIORS. Douglas Woods. Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York, 2014. 240 pp. with 182 col. ills. 24 x 24 cm. LC 2013-948343 ISBN 9780847842315 In English.
Publisher's description: Dreaming Small is a celebration of jewelbox homes, each marked by a sense of style that marries eclecticism, practicality, beauty, and livability. From quintessential bungalows and classic casas to Tudor fantasies, these delightful abodes are models of rich diversity and inspired living. In brilliant new photography, the book explores the possibilities that exist in these mostly unpublished gems by legendary architects Irving Gill, Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, and Paul R. Williams, among others. The houses, each under two thousand square feet, are examples of what is possible in the small house and offer the reader a colorful palette of ideas from which to artfully transform spaces into comfortable, contemporary living. Some homes featured here are period perfect time capsules, harkening back to the '20s, '30s, and '40s, while others embrace the new and are entirely of today. All are a testament to how a well designed house can wonderfully serve the needs of the twenty-first century. In an age where many are downsizing, this book will be welcomed. While showcasing a mix of homes, it emphasizes light, bright, and inspiring interiors that are beyond distinct architectural styles.
