Format: Paperback
I can only speak on behalf of myself, who is a completely clueless when it comes to decorating a home! I have always lived with others in apartments or school dorms, so I never had a say on home decor. Now, in the process of buying my first home, I am completely lost as to how to decorate it and what to buy! I love entertaining and I love having visitors over. I love color and I love beautiful furniture... if it wasnt for this book, I'm sure I would have gotten tons of different focal points and tons of splashes of color (I was color deprived when I was young!). This book helps you organize your thoughts mentally, and helps when you are starting off with a clean canvas. I say it's helpful for the clueless because it is of tremendous help to me (very clueless!). I'm not sure how helpful it will be if you already have ideas about home decorating! It's also pretty modern (I'm 24) if that is the direction you are looking towards.

The last section is also really cool! It has a floor grid and cut-out furniture pieces and a checklist that I can't wait to play around with!

I purchased this book because I wanted some unique ideas in an easy to read format and sure enough, this is what I was given!!! I love it!!! It is FULL of pictures which makes it easy for my husband to flip through and say like it/hate it....and that brings a huge grin to my face ;-) Oh, we relocate every three to four years (nope, not a military family) and we ALWAYS have new places and spaces. This gives great advice on using what you have and really adding speacial pieces.

Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for the beginning home owner or renter who doesn't know where to begin in making decisions about how to decorate their home. The book has material you can't find elsewhere on layout, types of sofas, chairs, beds, rooms etc. The rooms are contemporary, up-to-date and fresh.

The book has useful charts and questionnaires which will help the reader in decision-making and it's very clear and easy to read. It's a wonderful springboard to begin to articulate your personal style. I teach a class on interior design through continuing education and find the book very useful for students as an introduction to a complex subject like interior design.

Format: Paperback
We're purchasing our first home and I felt overwhelmed at the prospect of designing every room from scratch but this wonderful book inspired me to embrace the entire project, including painting walls. It's elementary, the Nest Home appears to be geared toward newly marrieds, but for those like me who need a refresher on the basics, this works!

Format: Paperback
The very best thing about this book is that many people of differing budgets, tastes and ideas can use it. Also, if you have strong color preferences, you can go over the color pictures again and again with your fellow householders. Many of these home decorating books hits the other extremes. They are either for someone with an enormous budget or they are for someone who personally has the skills to gut and renovate from top to bottom on a matchstick budget. This book fits the rest of us.

If you are shy about color or modern furniture, I think this book will be good for you. It reflects the way a modern person lives. For one, today's person has to be more easily able to move their furniture around than people once did, The people who had all that heavy furniture were born and died in the same town, usually in the same house. We are a lot more mobile. Since the Nest also has its own website which carries through on all of these topics, you can view the book as a launching pad and then take up permanent residence on the website.

If you are a professional in this field, this is not the book for you. It is not aimed at a decorator audience.

I really enjoyed looking through this book. I haven't read the whole thing though but what I have read is great! It gives great tips, pictures, a nice reference in back of the book, and some color schemes. This is a great book for just getting started with decorating, or if you would like some fresh ideas.

Format: Paperback
This book is fine if you are only interested in spare modern or contemporary design. If that look turns you off completely you need to find another source of inspiration. Rather than a nest, the photos seemed wholly bare and spare, with no coziness, warmth or owner personality in evidence.

I am totally into home design and watch as many shows as possible on HGTV. I also love [..]. This book proves to be the perfect combination of the two. The pages are well designed and easy to follow. The tips are great and I think anyone who is into home design will like this book.
