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.

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.

Few places in the world compare to Velaa Private Island. This ultra-exclusive boutique hideaway island is set in the azure seas of the Indian Ocean. The Maldivian retreat takes its name from the sea turtles that inhabit the region. In fact, seen from the air, Velaa’s exclusive over-watervillas resemble the head of a turtle with the island forming the body. Designed by Czech architect Petr Kolar, the overall concept is contemporary, yet intimate, with Maldivian influences. There are many private islands in the Maldives, but very few of them are actually privately owned by a single person. For Velaa’s owner, Jiri Smejc, the island has become his true passion where he spends the most of his time. At Velaa Private Island he has created what he feels is the ideal luxurious private resort delivering true privacy for its guests, yet also providing a number of discerning first-class indulgences—from world-class restaurants and wine cellar to golf academy—all in one place

Would you fancy a mammoth steak or simply some natural foods enjoyed by mankind in the Old Stone Age, long before the rise of agriculture? This book is the ultimate companion to anyone interested in the oldest human diet ever, which greatly contributed to our evolution. Archaeologists, anthropologists and paleontologists studied the bones and teeth of our ancestors and their living environment to reconstitute their nutritional habits. This book results of these scientific studies and is a serious introduction to paleo cooking. While the paleo diet is limited to basic ingredients, such as meats, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, herbs, nuts and seeds, it offers a lot of nutritional benefits, as it is gluten-free, low-carb and relies on fresh products. This is sufficient to keep away modern diseases linked to poor nutrition, such as over-weight or diabetes.

More and more people are hitting the road to the middle of nowhere. Along less-travelled paths they are heading up mountains and down dunes in converted mobile homes, campers, trucks, or vans. They are enjoying the drive and the view through mud-splattered wind shields as much as the stops and evening campfires amid stunning terrain.Although many of us love living in cities, we have a growing longing to escape into nature. The outdoor scene is booming and many people are heading off to discover it with their own converted vehicles. This way, they can determine their own routes, itineraries, and pace, as well as how many challenges they'd like to meet along the way. After a day on the go, these multifunctional vehicles also serve as kitchens, campgrounds, and sleeping quarters that offer a great deal more improvised fun than a standard, perfectly equipped RV. Conventional luxuries are eschewed for the sake of greater freedom, tranquillity, and adventure.Off the Road captures the special mood of such trips by solo travellers, couples, or families who are seeking an alternative to a more standard vacation or want to live their lives differently - at least for a while. On the one hand, the book shows how familiar models, such as VW buses, Land Rovers, Jeeps, and Toyotas are being rediscovered and repurposed for these exploits. On the other, it presents automotive dreams turned into customized, homey vehicles that offer tailgate breakfasts or roof beds to better admire the stars and that can, in an emergency, cross a river or drag a fallen tree from the road.Whether exploring the desert, showing children the world, or navigating polar landscapes, the journeys collected in Off the Road are as unique as the people who take them. From radical escapists to fans of nature looking for their next trip, the book celebrates the joy of being on the goon four wheels.

Nothing says summer like driving a convertible. The car without a roof has always been a symbol for luxury and laissez-faire. And it still holds true today: everybody who’s anybody drives “topless.” The larger four-seater convertibles in particular have always been highly sought after—but they are difficult to build and have usually been made as coupés for this reason. Mercedes-Benz has always been a pioneer in this area. Mercedes-Benz: The Grand Cabrios & Coupés gives us a peek at the long-standing partnership between Mercedes-Benz and Stuttgart-based photographer, René Staud. Carefully-staged photos show graceful curves and precision down to the finest details that convey the company’s dedication to a very special kind of driving pleasure. This volume presents the most important convertibles and related coupés of Daimler automotive history. A special highlight is Daimler’s new flagship, a convertible based on the new S-class that is being rolled out at 2015. Even though summer eventually comes to an end, and sunny days can give way to showers, this book stands for everlasting convertible adventures.
