Great for Beginners and Young Folks!,
This review is from: Domino: The Book of Decorating: A Room-by-Room Guide to Creating a Home That Makes You Happy (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Domino: The Book of Decorating is a terrific book for beginner decorators and people in their twenties to thirties, as I think the style and language is most appealing to young adults.
The introduction sets up the mission of the book: "How can you decorate without making making unnecessary, costly, and time-consuming mistakes? How can you produce a result that reflects who you are, how you live,--and perhaps even the image you want to convey?"
Getting started has lots of tips like: find inspiration, determine your style, draw a floor plan, set and budget, research and more--all designed for the beginner to gain confidence in the decorating process.
Next, how to decorate room by room. Great photographs with styles like "cool collector," and "brave bohemian."
The book is filled with tips, advice and tricks on how to decorate. There are also small space solutions and advice on how to select major pieces of furniture.
There is a handy section on window treatments and upholstery.
Finally, the authors include a terrific resource guide that includes prices ranges and is titled: "The Big Black Book."
