This is a great step-by-step guide for anybody wanting to design & decorate their home -under any style and budget- . It helps you define what you like and then take it from paper to reality.

I was clueless about home decorating before picking it up but it helped me accomplish more than expected on my first home. It comes with a workbook, so you will need to spend time filling out all the guides.

The decorating approach in this book is really personal, which I thought ideal for helping make a house feel like home. And the approach is this: decorating is about how the room makes you FEEL and how well it functions for your lifestyle.

To create a room with the proper function and emotion, the author provides a strong foundation of essential principles (like contrast, repetition, lines of sight, traffic flow) in a totally non-judgmental way so you can do whatever will work best for your life

Quite frankly, I was overwhelmed by the amount of drawings this method calls for. I've always made drawings of the rooms I've decorated and it has always helped---just not so many! I'm very visual, so that may be why. This books will work very well for those who are not as visual, provided they exercise the patience to make those drawings.

The main thing to take away from This book is to have confidence in yourself and in what you like no matter what. Your home is your home to make and so long a

You know, in all my reviews, I kept begging for a design book that was SUPER step-by-step to help me work through a process. This is definitely that book! But as soon as I got it, I felt overwhelmed because of how many meticulous steps she had. I don't doubt at all that this process could get you from point A to point B with few or any regrets - I just had hoped that I could just kind of *feel* what I wanted and go with it. I think this book deserves another go from me, maybe when I feel less ov ...more

I have to admit, a big part of why I liked the book was the reproducible worksheets! Lots of good advice -- some obvious, some new-to-me, some presenting old advice in a new way. It really covers all the steps you need to follow to satisfactorily decorate your home in the way that YOU feel most comfortable, not according to some trend or a designer's opinion. I think that the book could easily have been split into two parts, one more along the lines of "dreaming" (finding inspiration, analyzing ...more

I have spent the last 6 months of my life trying to figure out how to pin-point my "style" pouring through website after website, blog after blog, to settle on a something that won't be too trendy and feels authentic to me. I'm in the process of building/designing my own house, but with very limited professional help to make decisions, so this book is perfect. I just found this book at the end of my procees and really wish I had found it months ago as it takes you step by step through the planni ...more

I'm actually still on page 149 bc I couldn't renew it any more times and had to return it to library. This girl is all about the details and she will make you work to find your perfect decorated space. But I loved it. ...more

I liked her message and all of the thought she puts into the design process. The method was entirely unrealistic though! Like you have to fill out about 30 sheets for each room, including drawing the whole thing in different elevations to scale on graph paper, including accessories.

filling out 100 worksheets to accomplish my home's perfect style is just a bit over the top

Very redundant. This information could have fit in a book half the size.
