Farris, author of numerous home improvement and décor books, presents room projects that will add value to any home. Home gym, theater, cigar lounge, library, and spa are covered, each with an accompanying gallery of inspirational examples. However, the projects that follow are not always pictured and sometimes fall short of the promised luxury. The theater section has nice design and layout considerations, but the AV equipment is dated, with no discussion of high definition. Instructions are cursory, and some of the finished projects look a bit sloppy. Ultimately, the book fails to completely deliver. A marginal purchase.
