How do you set up a children's room that is fun, colorful, or perhaps more traditional? One that leaves enough room for playing and daydreaming and makes children's heart beat faster? A child's room must be fun both for its smaller inhabitants and for the parents, who usually arrange them: it's here that budding young minds first begin to explore the world. These rooms have plenty to do, acting as a playroom, a place to sleep, a reading nook, and a space for young minds to concentrate and watch creativity unfold. Years can be spent playing and learning in a child's room, a sibling might move in, and exchanging laughter is a certainty. Setting up a children's room can be a wonderful challenge, and can bring the greatest joy to parents. Little Big Rooms offers inspiration for mothers and fathers, pairing priceless tips for new rooms or spaces in need of an update with furniture and accessory recommendations sure to please both young children and their discerning parents.

A place that symbolizes freedom, traveling and the wind of change: It’s a Gas! is going in search of the most unique gas stations around the world. The first gasoline was sold in pharmacies—but this was to change in the 1950s. As the car experienced its great rise in popularity, gas stations began to pop up like mushrooms out of the ground. Futuristic and progressive, these modern temples of mobility became roadside reference points for young people hungry for independence, and to everyone who strove for a sense of freedom. It’s a Gas! explores the surprisingly diverse world of the gas station—a functional high tech temple, a transit zone, a film set, a converted residence, or an abandoned ruin hidden in a backyard. The world of pumps is full of surprises, ready to be discovered in this book.

This stylish volume takes us high into the exclusive world of mountain chalets. They are dream houses which offer a blend of majestic nature, traditional architecture, and individualistic design or sanctuaries from the over-scheduled and chaotic world below. Offering exclusive, upscale living, these refuges are located in the shadow of magnificent peaks. Expansive walls of glass open onto views of picturesque mountain landscapes. Inside are unique interiors composed of antiques, furs, and found items from nature, art, and design. Their interiors offer a welcoming and cozy space to relax or socialize after winter sports or Alpine strolls. Most notable, perhaps, is the role landscape plays in the design of these dramatic dwellings. Set against hillside views and picturesque valleys, furniture, materials, and artwork take on new vitality-regardless of whether the style is rustic and traditional or altogether more sleek and modern. Yet, although varied in ambiance, all these chalets share an awareness of texture, scale, and light that creates a unifying sense of ease and grace.
