This is a wonderful book! I've referred back to it many times since I've received it. It contains info on proper furniture arrangement, tablescaping, selecting a color scheme and blending patterns, proper lighting, window treatments etc. It is broken down in sections so it's easy to use as a resource for specific design questions. It has alot of wonderful pictures of decorated rooms for inspiration as well. This book has 463 pages of info and pictures you will use time and time again. GET THIS BOOK! You will not be sorry.

Tons of beautiful photos fill this thick volume. The photos are very clear and appear true to life in color. The book is sectioned off by various areas of the home such as: dining, living room, kitchen, etc. There are many helpful tips and designer favorite tips. The writing is clear on the eyes and in concept. This is somewhat of a basic decorating book and I did feel some areas were rather boring such as: going over finding the perfect bench to place at the foot of the master bed. That being said what average homeowner among us couldn't use some brushing up on basic home layouts. Like most HB books it is really stunning but unlike some HB books the photos are not overly ornate at all and many focus on an eclectic style incorporating both modern, country and some Mediterranean designs. Some HB books seem to only be for the rich and famous. This is somewhat of a basic book with room/furniture layout discussed as well as color choices for walls, etc. I did still feel that many of the rooms were above the budget of the average homeowner but take what you can from this beautiful book. I personally would have very much liked to see more wall art displays...that was lacking. Also: for the bedrooms...more full suite photos would have been appreciated.

I love this book. Not only does it give you great ideas for decortaing and placement of furniture, but they give you paint color ideas. They define the colors and tell you where they go best and what goes with those colors! It has been a lot of fun!!

The Home Book, a weighty tome dedicated to all facets of interior design comes from the people who edit House Beautiful and it has the same bland charm. It is 464 pages and has more than 500 photos as well as tips that include theme, color, furnishings, wall and floor covering and just about every aspect of decoration. The focus is on defining your personal style and expanding it into the home in a way that creates a harmonious environment. It can also keep you from making some of the design mistakes that hurt a home when it is time to sell. It's not the most thrilling design book around but it provides good solid basic information.

I was very excited to order this book. I first saw it in a store near me selling for $50 and couldn't bear to spend that much. So I looked around and found it here for half the price! Now after reading and browsing this book many times it would have been worth the 50 bucks it was orginally selling for. It has many helpful hints and ideas for your home. Its been a life saver!

The book is nicely printed, very good pictures inside and nicely indexed. I think the nice index was also what fooled me on buying this book. I thought I could learn how to design my own house from this book but instead it just show you common sense and general design concept for each room. There is no real instruction and information in this book. Still a nice book to keep on your book shelf though.
