Fun and easy - the book is great
, December 16, 2009
Speed Decorating is perfect for someone like me, who isn't in the design industry, yet frequently feels frustrated by rooms in my home that seem to be in dire need of a facelift. Sure, we all know to "declutter," but, how to do that and make the space attractive, inspiring or feel like a desirable and uplifting representation of who we are is a whole different story. I received my book as a gift, and I can honestly say I found it easy to look at and read it long enough to know, "Ok, I can do this!" Within one week, I came up with economical solutions to three areas in my home that bugged me. The book is fun, approachable, well-organized and provides simple marching orders to have fun, get inspired, be confident and take it a step at a time. Additionally, this book debunked the myth that I have to wait for a decorating change I'd love until I can afford an expensive overhaul or purchase. So, for me, I adore the book! ...and, I'm just a reader...
