Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As usual, Creative Homeowner provides a well-illustrated, practical guide to transforming a home. Connelly (New Smart Approach to Kids' Rooms) examines all aspects of the front of a house. Topics include paint and color, pathways and windows, driveways and garages, porches, landscaping, and lighting. Each section contains numerous color photos of various residential styles, with the captions describing the success of each decorating detail. Included are maintenance tips and advice on how and when to hire a professional. Although some topics are covered briefly, e.g., gardening, this overview of front-yard design is comprehensive overall. Recommended for public libraries of all sizes.
