The editors of Domino magazine here show how amateurs can achieve a young, sophisticated look in their homes. A brief review of important preliminary considerations—budget, defining one's own style, the room's function—is followed by advice for decorating every room of the house, including children's rooms and offices. Different styles are shown for each in plenty of color photographs, with suggested furnishings and advice on how to mix styles. Each chapter concludes with a look at how a Domino staff member has decorated a similar room with a description of her approach to design. Recommended for large public libraries.

I loved the book for the 'curated' reference list in back. It definitely seemed like the author's gave shout out to folks they've featured or likely have got a truck load of free stuff from, however, they provide a very diverse range of merchants from low to high-end and and covering just about every aspect of home decorating. I also appreciated it's pragmatic approach to small spaces and rental dwellings that weren't 10'foot ceiling lofts or 17th century guest houses located behind a well manicured labyrinth garden...on an estate.
Almost everything is theoretically accessible to someone with a measure of creativity and who knows what they're at least wanting to experience when they walk through the front door.
I'm about to embark on a decorating project and I truly believe that this book has saved me hours pouring over cute, but utterly useless periodicals from grocery stores and such.
Ultimately, what I got from this was get about 10-15 different well-thought out research media (books, videos, color books, blogs, etc) and simply read and reflect and explore. It saves a ton of cash and gets you what you really want.
Definitely going to try the approach to decorating outlined here, along with a few others.
Besides beautiful photographs of rooms that make you drool, it guides you along the way... letting you be the decorator. It further discusses different types and styles of furniture and construction of the various pieces.
Overall, one of the most complete and comprehensive books on decorating, perfectly geared for the novice and equally appealing for the experts.
I can't speak for people who already know what they're doing in terms of interior design, but for a novice like me, this book has been worth every penny.
I would buy it again, and recommend it to anyone who's looking for something like this
I would recommend to a friend!
I wish that it had dealt a bit more with styles, rather than just an eclectic method. Some of the photos were of rooms that I did not find attractive at all, just "different".
All in all I would recommend this book for people who are wanting to educate themselves about decorating. It definitely has a place in that collection
