Interiors can be loud again. More and more people are turning to high-contrast spaces with brilliant wall colors and patterned sofas. Our rooms can look how we feel. Leaving unifying trends behind, today’s cutting-edge interior design focuses on creating personal concepts customized to individual inhabitants. Unique pieces and eccentric combinations are both used to set the scene in eye-catching ways. Kaleidoscope is a showcase of surprisingly different residences that range from the beautiful to the bizarre. While some of the featured examples are reminiscent of time capsules and others of film sets, all of them defy categorization. The book offers inspiration for anyone bold enough to re-imagine interior design in any way they can think of.

The tropics are not only an address, but also a way of life. Living Under the Sun is a stunning showcase of modern tropical interiors and architecture that meld local design tradition and bold innovation in compelling ways. More than anywhere else on earth, the tropics demand an architecture that can bridge the gap between what is outside—sea, sand, sky, and sun—and what lies within. The villas, family homes, artists’ ateliers, beach shacks, and urban pieds-à-terre featured in the book embrace their outdoor surroundings to offer fresh, often surprising indoor possibilities that are ideally suited to their climates. The elegantly easy-going work featured in Living Under the Sun exemplifies how to create tranquil settings to soothe our hectic lives, regardless of our geographical location.

Who hasn’t had that feeling that something needs to change ASAP? And by something, we mean nothing less than our daily environment, the space immediately around us—our apartment, condo, or house. The reasons we need a change are legion: we might want to paint the boring white kitchen walls a more interesting color, or get frustrated at all the time we spend burrowing around in the back of the closet looking for something to wear. Or maybe there’s no storage in the bathroom, so what should we do with all of the towels and shower supplies? Now you can get all the help you need from a professional. Interior designer Fay Markopoulou develops customized solutions for her clients that re-define how space is used and take maximum advantage of available options. Using easy to understand do-it-yourself projects, Modern Living – How to Decorate with Style shows how investing just a little time and money can make a big splash in your home.

While tiny homes are rapidly becoming a necessity in our ever-growing world, they’re also a creative outlet, an opportunity for designers and architects to test their ingenuity and flex their aesthetic muscle. The 54 homes and apartments in Small & CHIC Interiors demonstrate these traits, showing the trends, new creations, and groundbreaking ideas currently flourishing in micro interior design. By utilizing every inch of space in ways that are not just practical but aesthetically pleasing, the designers of Small & CHIC Interiors turn potentially cramped, gloomy homes into comforting spaces full of air and light. A sample of the ambitious projects include a medieval granary on the outskirts of Rome converted to modern living quarters, a cosy and compact home on a secluded island in the North Sea, a Bulgarian apartment renovated on a budget of only 500 Euros, and a single-room Manhattan studio given new dimension by a large piece of folding furniture that converts to dividing walls, storage space, and a work station.
