It is difficult not to listen when the "First Lady" of design-made-simple talks. After all, with more than 30 books to her credit, as well as TV shows, print columns, and other professional accomplishments, Gilliatt has mastered the art of showcasing decorating tips in an easily accessible manner. Her method? First, she presents no haute-color photographs of rich and famous interiors. Instead, her plentiful illustrations concentrate on classic shapes with vivid but not phantasmagorical colors, patterns, and textures. Second, she minimizes jargon. Gilliatt includes definitions wherever and whenever possible--about lighting, color, furniture, etc. Third, she features very practical and very creative tips for dealing with at-home issues, such as problem bay windows, discolored tile grout, and storage solutions.
