					  Use What You Have Decorating :
 Transform Your Home in One Hour

   Using the Space You Have, the
  Things You Like, the Budget You
        Choose by Lauri Ward


                                I Love This Book!


Finally, finally, a practical home-decorating book for the reader who is not
a millionaire! Rather than call in a professional design consultant to tell
you which walls must go and throwing out everything you own in favor of
new and expensive designer fabrics, furniture, and fixtures, Ward starts
with what you already have and makes dramatic transformations by
arrangement, use of color, and a few inexpensive additions of objects or
materials. Her idea is to use what you already have and like, and operate
on a budget you can afford to make your home more satisfying and
aesthetically pleasing to you without being a slave to passing trends, fads,
and radical transformations that end up making you feel like a stranger in
your own home. Among the many tips and guidelines, Ward starts with the
top 10 decorating mistakes that professionals all know about, but that
anyone can recognize and fix. She covers diagnosing problems that jar
the eyes, offers suggestions on items to banish and others to borrow from
elsewhere in the home to create more visual appeal, talks about how to
shop for furniture that will work with what you already own, offers tips for
new homeowners and people just starting out to make older furniture work
in new spaces, and covers the kinds of dramatic improvements possible
through the use of the right artwork, accessories, and lighting. This is a
great gift book for newlyweds, new homeowners, or anyone interested in
creative, lively home decorating without breaking the bank. --Mark A.

I am a professional interior designer and I found this book great because it
provides great information in a easy to read format. I read more than half
the book in one evening. Some people have stated that even though they
love the book they wished it was in color. I love the book in black and
white because the emphasis really is on the placement and not so much
the color. I find that when items are related in color it is easy for the eye to
make the connection and ignore the real placement of the items. When
the pictures are in black and white, it forces the eye to look at where and
how the items are placed. This is a great book and I would recommend it
to the novice, lay person, or professional designer/decorator looking to add
an additional service that they can offer their clients. I give it two thumbs
up!
