That was...weird.

I mean, I'm just going to be a bit of a hater here: I can only take so many curlique font headers. What is going on with these design books and the cutesy headers?! I just wanted something concrete, factual...

I'm realizing as I type this that what I'm looking for and the basic idea of interior design maaaaay be mutually exclusive. I wanted a textbook. A clear how-to. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3. Science, some psychology studies thrown in there. A very detailed tutorial on how exactly o

I really did read this from cover to cover, in order to prep for my tiny Boston studio. This was only so helpful, as it was for small rooms in small houses, not tiny, cardboard box-sized studio apartments, and it required lots of money and drilling. But it gave some good ideas.

What an amazing woman; has some fabulous, economic, cool, brilliant solutions for space concerns. Shows you how to use color in an intelligent way. Uses techniques that I have not found in other designing books. Very unique and I would highly recommend this book!
