Item description for London Apartments (Tools) by Aurora Cuito...
Narrow winding streets, tasteful gardens, and centuries' old structures have long made London the Capital of Quaint. But in the past few years this historic city has made a name for itself in the world of architecture and design, and nowhere is that distinction more evident than in its apartment dwellings, as this colorful volume clearly proves. If you thought living in London meant electric fireplaces and damp cheerless parlors decorated with your grandmother's furniture, think again. Windows that wow, rooms vibrating with color, kitchens so sleek they seem to melt into the walls and bathrooms so luxurious they seem to make other rooms unnecessary---all these and more can be found between the covers of this elegant book that will both inspire and transport. Forty intimate home tours of beautifully appointed apartments, each with its own character, take readers through the basics of space, lighting, and color. Blueprints, sketches, and an informative text aimed at professionals and laypeople alike present each apartment's unique challenges and design strategy. From the witty to the high-tech, the minimalist to the lavish, these London apartments showcase the best work of today's architects and designers and secure London's reputation as one of the most exciting places to live in the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about London Apartments (Tools)?
Good Book, But I Wish It Was a Bit Bigger Mar 5, 2007
Wide variety of London spaces from different designers in different locations. The photos are very good, but I wish there were a few more of each flat. (There are an average of about 7 pages per flat). And keep in mind that the pages aren't very big. Of course, you can tell that from the book's size description.
All in all, good for getting a flavour of modern London design.
