The First Apartment Book
Cool Design for Small SpacesBook - 2012
"First apartments are so exciting because you can finally do what you want with your own space, but they can be tricky to decorate. Kyle Schuneman knows that a paper-thin wallet and four plain walls don t have to stand between you and your perfect home. Kyle, 26, is a decorating prodigy who has designed first apartments for friends, clients, and himself, braving logic-defying floor plans, space-challenged rooms, and picky landlords. In The First Apartment Book, Kyle shares brilliant design ideas and thirty simple DIY projects that show how anyone can infuse a first home with personality whether you re renting, moving in with a roommate or significant other for the first time, or are a newly minted owner eager to put your stamp on your place. The First Apartment Book is both a tour of amazing photographs from ten real homes across the country and a hardworking resource of great ideas. Kyle explains how each of the featured apartments achieves the perfect balance between cool design and the homeowner s lifestyle, with a sprinkling of influences from the resident s city thrown in. yle scours flea markets for functional pieces with personality and incorporates Pollock
