Vanessa Brunner added this to Book to Know: 'Living in a Nutshell'
What inspired your decision to write this book?I had been a serial small-space nester for over a decade, fine-tuning storage and style solutions along the way. But when my Brooklyn apartment had two offers and sold in less than an afternoon in the midst of one of the toughest real estate markets in history, it confirmed that I had a style and point of view that others respond to and like. My apartment had green living room walls, a chocolate-striped bathroom and a floor-to-ceiling chalkboard wall in the kitchen. The exact same unit, still pristine in contractor-white paint, on another floor in the building had been on the market for six months without an offer. I had to find a rental quickly and figure out a way to design it with things that wouldn't hurt the walls or windows or floors. I wanted to document it and share the process, so the Living in a Nutshell blog was born.
