Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

These two books provide an overall guide for amateurs to decorating one's home. Dano, star of the NBC soap opera Another World, gives examples of styles from sporty to classic, with information on flooring, window treatments, and wall coverings. In each chapter she suggests the furnishings needed to create a desired style and offers anecdotes on the successes and failures she has experienced that reinforce the sound decorating advice. Linsley (Leslie Linsley's 15-Minute Decorating Ideas, LJ 5/15/96) directs her professional decorating advice to those who are just starting out. Rather than using lots of pictures, Linsley suggests ways to find one's own style and gives her recommendations on how to achieve it. Both books are highly recommended for public libraries. [Dano's book was previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 12/97.]

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Very reader-friendly and user-friendly book for those of us who do not have a lot of money to spend to decorate. Because it is written in first person, Linda Dano, explains all facets of decorating wonderfully. Tips are very easy to follow. Visually, the book is very attractive.

Format: Hardcover
I believe this book is very useful. We are looking for our first house now, so I've gone through a great amount of decorating books and magazines, and I was quite naive thinking that I know the subject pretty well. I was so mistaken! It's turned out I had no idea about basic principles of home decorating (though my friends find my home very cozy, yes, they really do!). I could never imagine before, that a book with few illustrations (but rich and great looking) may be so useful. But it isn't illustrations that count. This book is a must to read before you'll take any other book filled with pictures, because it tells you what's behind the scene and instead of copying someone's else idea, it teaches you to create you own. Also, it's written with a great style and humor, very easy and interesting to read (I even put away my detective story!)

Linda Dano's advice is always very welcome. Her basic ideas are helpful no matter the date of the book.
Love anything she contributes to better living ideas.
