Editorial Reviews

Review

"With even the smallest tasks, Carter has the same approach to homeowners that I do with cooks in the kitchen. His advice and designs are creative, helpful, attainable, and inspiring, AND he even calls the kitchen the hub of the house. That’s my kind of guy! . . . It is so important to feel at home in your own home. With Carter's thoughtful tips featured throughout and his Million Dollar Perspective, readers will have the tools to transform their home into their own space. You know you’ll find me in the kitchen!" --From the Foreword by Rachael Ray

From the Back Cover

Carter Oosterhouse knows how real people live and how intimidating home design can be. With his reassuring, “you can do it” attitude, he goes out of his way to show readers how to create realistic design elements that they can implement with basic tools and a little DIY experience. His mission is to bring people’s imaginations to life. The design features he constructs use materials easily found, are budget-conscious, and whenever possible environmentally friendly.

I was lucky enough to have been a First Read Winner and I loved this book, and will cherish it for many years to come. Not only is it full of helpful suggestions and before and after pictures, I especially liked the "deep green choices", I did not realize how many green options there are available. Also Carter's Law is real informative and inspirational. The only negative thing, and it mainly comes from my husband, I now want to remodel different area's of our home. I was told I had to do Baby steps. So needless to say I am recommending this book and I can't wait to reference portions of this book for my upcoming remodels.

"A no nonsense method for designing your own super stylish home" is exactly what you will find in this book. Before and after pictures offer hope to regular folks in regular homes that they too can live in style with great design without the need for expense. Ever want to know more about green products for your home or the pros/cons of different products? They are explained here. The "Carter's Law" boxes within the book also offer quick tips/suggestions for reference. Carter's shared stories from his youth and life add perspective that is profound even as it applies to much more than decorating and your home. I am excited to keep this book in my library of decorating books and ideas as well as share it with our customers who use our business services (painting/wall coverings/home sewing).

I purchased this book after seeing Carter guest star on The Talk and was intrigued by his ideas. The book unfortunately is not exactly budget-friendly as Carter does have expensive taste.

I honestly do not believe a lot of these decorating books aren't made for me. I do not have a lots of money and I am on a perpetual budget. Splurging for bed pillows is a big deal for me. lol
I will say I was mighty impressed with this book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I loved learning new and fresh ideas.

His ideas and suggestions were pretty generic and trite. I'm not a decorator but I think I could have written this book.
