This book had some good principles for interior design for your walls. I was hoping for more specific ideas. It had very good instructions and recommendations on how to properly frame and attach your art to the walls. I would recommend this book to people who have empty walls and need an idea on how to decorate. There were quite a few helpful references in the appendix.
I won this book in the First Reads Giveaway and it is a great decorating book to have around! Really cute illustrations throughout and some great tips. I can see it being useful for everyone - the first-time decorator to the experienced designer. Also has a great small hardcover format.
