Pad: The Guide to cover Ultra-Living
by Matt Maranian 
Pad is not your usual interior design book. For one thing, there's an undeniable excess of leopard print and retro kitsch, the likes of which you're unlikely to ever see gracing the pages of Met Home. But even if you hate the pads pictured here, you'll find yourself inspired by the stories of the folks responsible for them: these are people who seriously love their living spaces, and have come up with some ingenious ways to create the digs of their dreams. Interspersed among the stories and pictures are some fantastic DIY projects, complete with illustrations and step-by-step how-tos.
