This is a user friendly book that is like sitting down with your best friend-who, lucky you, just happens to be a talented and insightful designer- who supports you through the steps in changing your residence into your home. She is down to earth- the text reads like Meghan is sitting and talking right next to you- and as you read through the Meghan Method it develops your confidence in your ideas of what you want your rooms to feel- that's right- FEEL to you and look the way you want without spending a ton on a designer to tell you how THEY would like it to look. Spend that money on your room instead. Meghan guides you to confidently think thru choices to end up with a successful room design- and lessen the potential for design mistakes-another money saver. Have you ever entered a room and felt it was odd or irritating to your eye? That is because it didn't fit you or your ideas of comfort. Personalization and purpose are the keys Meghan works to give you.

The book is visually gorgeous and is easy to use. Meghan lays out everything for you in steps that are as detailed as you need/want. It teaches you in reasonable ways about design and remodeling. She has links to printable webpages for your personal planning purposes- and her website is also available for support. When you buy a self-help book you want it to be of value to you for a long time and this book is common sense, handy-man (woman) useful, and will support anyone in any type of dwelling, whether it is house, apartment, condo, houseboat- where-ever you live- in making choices to create a place of comfort, usefulness and positivity. You can dwell in a structure or you can LIVE in your home- Meghan guides you to make it really LIVING.

I have never seen a decorating book like this one, and i have bought many. This is the first one the really breaks it down for you. Megan doesn't just show lots of rooms done in her taste. The book makes alot of sense if you take the time to read and not just look for the easy way out. I do wish for more photos, perhaps progression pictures of a room being decorated step-by-step since i'm a visual learner. Otherwise, its worth the read.

Before Meghan's book, decorating always seemed to me like a mysterious mix of art, talent, and luck. I have a lot of decorating books. Meghan's is very different, very personal and organized perfectly -- it dispels the mystery and walks one through the process. Honestly, it's like having a decorator hold your hand, listen to your likes and dislikes, and help you make choices. Along the way you learn why and how function is first, how emotion and personality are expressed, and the design principles to help you create something you will love. This book is a real gift to those of us who have tried and failed repeatedly to create a beautiful room. Thank you, Meghan!

I purchased this book to help my wife and I bring our decorating ideas to life. Just as Meghan stated in her book, most people shop to buy items they think they like only to find once the room is put together it does not come together as they had imagined so they shop some more. We are those people! We have bought items only to get them in place and say, this is not the direction we wanted to go in. We can definitely relate to the mistakes Meghan predicts most people make when trying to make their house a home. This book has been and will continue to be very helpful as we work our way from one room to the next. Also, really enjoyed the tips on creating a space that will be enjoyed by all who live in the house, not just the person doing the decorating. The book has made us both sit back and think about what we want and need out of the space, rather than painting the walls and throwing up some decorations only to be disappointed.

When I read the subtitle,"The Step-By-Step Guide to Decorating Your Home in Your Style", I assumed I was going to be led by the hand. Oh, how wrong I was. I'm having to think!! But with the many worksheets, scorecards and illustrations I am learning how to access my raw ideas and emotions then translate them into floorplans, elevations and actual drawings. I've already discovered that some of what I thought I wanted is not at all going to "work". I keep going back and forth between the book and my own worksheets. By the time I finish redecorating my first room my volume is going to well dog-eared and even a bit worn looking. It will not be an idea book sitting on a shelf!

I have loved this book. It was just what I was looking for. An extremely well written book to teach me how to decorate my home to look like my family and I live here, not some stranger with good taste. This book is helping us create rooms that "feel" like we want to feel when we are in them. I have always struggled with decorating because I have not had a good sound plan based on a well thought out design and I don't like shopping. I get overwhelmed at all the choices and give up. As a chef I knew I was creative, but now know how to use my creativity to design my home. I have always believed form followed function, but learned from this book that the feel was missing.

I love the format of the book with great visual summaries, and key points. It is a "reading" design book instead of a photo flip book. If you hoping to flip through designs for something to copy you won't find it here. While it is visually stunning this book is best at giving you well thought out and insightful tools to help you create your own signature design that is unmistakably "you. The worksheets are printable from the author's website and the time it takes to complete them is well worth getting the design right before you dive into making changes and shopping.
