Book gives ideas for apartments

As if creating a space you love weren’t hard enough, try adding the challenges of tiny rooms, limited money and elements you’re stuck with, like ugly bathroom tile and worn kitchen cabinets.

Kyle Schuneman has your back. Schuneman, the 27-year-old founder of Live Well Designs and one of House Beautiful’s “Next Wave of Top 20 Designers,” helps renters decorate their digs in “The First Apartment Book: Cool Design for Small Spaces.”

Schuneman plays off tenants’ personalities and the vibe of the cities where they live. “The First Apartment Book” is published by Clarkson Potter and sells for $25 in softcover.
