This book has beautiful pictures, but the text is too small to read on my Kindle Fire.

This book is specially designed in Amazon's fixed-layout KF8 format with region magnification. Double-tap on an area of text to zoom and read. When you tap on the text, that region of text will pop out in a box, with larger text.

Kelly has done a wonderful job with this book. The rooms are inspirational and the recipes are very informative. I love the different styles used and love the fact that it is broken down by rooms. The book is beautiful to look through and a great value, will be displaying on my coffee table as well.

She has been great to watch on HGTV and Style Network through the years, am happy to finally see that she now has a book.

I am so inspired by many ideas for each room in the house. This book has answers for the frustrated person who is at a loss when it comes to sparking up a corner, making a room inviting, and using unusual objects to add interest. Thanks to all the examples, I will want to pour over this book over and over again. I won`t be afraid to experiment with this guide.

There are lots of nice pictures and you can read section heads but the content (body text) is totally unreadable on a 9 inch tablet running Kindle for Android. It locks into landscape, full screen, no zoom. All I can figure out is it's a bunch of landscape pictures, not an e-book.

Thank you Kelly for being the first designer to come up with such a creative concept!!! Everyone has their own style of design but in my opinion your ideas can be brought in to any home! My two favorites are the orchid bowl and the projector art on a chalk board! I've used both ideas for gifts recently and my friends loved them!! Keep following your dreams Kelly! I think you are a top designer and I love this book!!!

Such a great book with many ideas for all styles!
I have recently moved into a new home and was at a loss for pulling my rooms together to completion and this book has offered me many ways to do that. Using a few of these simple recipes, I have successfully completed a few project in my home and love the rooms everytime I walk through them! This book has inspired and given me the confindence to mix some old furniture finds with some new furniture in my home. I absolutely love it!
