Publisher's Weekly Review

Coleen Cahill's Simple Solutions: Bedrooms illustrates many ways to enhance the room often considered the most personal in a home. Over time this simple, functional space has become more than just a place to sleep. For many it has become a retreat from the outside world, functioning as sanctuary, office, entertainment center, spa and more; in its planning and decoration, its occupants seek the most enjoyment and the best possible use of space. Cahill (Kitchens, also from the Simple Solutions series) explores tiny alcoves and cavernous spaces, displayed here in full-color. Soothing, satisfying environments can be created in the simplest or smallest room, via homemade canopies, "whimsical" dresser hardware, wall-mounted light fixtures, built-in storage space, aesthetics ranging from austere to cozy and a panoply of other design ideas. Timothy Drew, managing editor of Home Magazine, contributes an informative foreword which sketches developments in this previously overlooked design area. ( Dec.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
