In Chapter 1: Inspiration, Sara draws inspiration from truly tiny spaces such as boats and caravans as well as her own home – a diminutive workman’s cottage in Richmond, London.

In Chapter 2: Elements of Design, she discusses how even the most straightforward planning decisions can be complicated by the constraints of small spaces and suggests clever design solutions.

The third chapter, Elements of Style, explores ideas for making compact interiors work through creative styling and decoration.

In Chapter 4, a series of case studies take a closer look at imaginative treatments for pocket-size interiors, showcasing a variety of tiny spaces including a terraced ‘two-up, two-down’ worker’s cottage, a tiny studio with a clever mezzanine that incorporates a bathroom and a pint-sized coastal hideaway.

Another of her books – Urban Pioneer: Interiors inspired by industrial design. Sara Emslie investigates the practise for transforming non-residential spaces into homes, the key elements of the look – from exposed brickwork to copper piping and metal roof trusses – and the related rise in the popularity of the industrial design. She then explores twelve inspiring and varied real-life homes that showcase the very best of the Urban Pioneer look.
