Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a must have for terrific tips on decorating your home to make it slob proof. It includes wonderful ideas to make your home beautiful and liveable even if your husband is a slob, you have a pet(s) and your kids are typically messy. It includes a lot of useful information and includes stories and humor that many can relate to. I have gotten decorating books before that I thought reflected my lifestyle, but was disappointed when there was not a lot of information I could use. This book really has useful information to make my home very liveable and beautiful too!

This book is practical yet beautiful and written with much humor! This is not just a designer's showhouse tip book but a guide book of design for all. Debbie Wiener has definitely tapped a unique niche in the often over the top world of interior design.

It's about time someone wrote this kind of book. Most design books too overdone, but this book really speaks to families like ours. We both work, we have kids and they have friends over all the time. Our top priority when we buy furniture is to find something that will last. This book told us what to look for in carpets and seating. She lists many online sites that are quite helpful. Plus, the designer is funny and you feel she's just like you- not looking down on your taste and style. Overall, it's well organized and actually quite funny and we could relate to her own family stories. Her hand-written notes help you focus on what's important.

I loved this book. I first heard about Debbie on the Jen & Vicky podcast show. She was great and I loved how you could decorate without having to replace everything every two years. I have beige carpet and a dog that has made a mess of it. I can't wait to replace my flooring and I am definetly using Debbie's decorating advise. Buy the book you won't be sorry!

For design advice that tackles the reality of how you really live instead of offering fantasies on how you would like to live, read Slob Proof! by Debbie Wiener. Thanks to Wiener's years of experience as a professional interior designer and her years of living with a husband and children who are slobs, she is able to design living spaces that are both attractive and practical.

Wiener's friendly writing style and personal anecdotes about how her own family of slobs inspired many of her design solutions makes this a fun as well as practical read. From floor to ceiling Wiener covers it all. She tells you which flooring options, including stone, wood and carpeting, are going to last the longest and look the best. Anyone whose living room has basically turned into a dining room with the stains to prove it will appreciate her fabric suggestions for chairs and couches. Not only does she identify the most indestructible stain resistant fabrics to use she show you how using patterns can cleverly camouflage the stains. Whether talking about wall paint, window coverings, floors or furniture, the author emphasizes stain resistance, stain camouflage, practicality and durability. She also lists specific brands and manufacturers to make the decorating process easier.
