    The anti-HGTV remedy

    This is a wonderful book that delves into the minds and lifestyles of some of the most creative people in the world. It shows how they live and why.<BR/>Unlike so many recent publications and television shows, this book presents true creativity and it's tangible results. Simultaneously, it helps develops the readers own instinctive "eye" and will aid in the processes of selecting and editing in realizing a very personal living space.<BR/>Please note, this is not a book of do it yourself projects and methods. There is a glut of that sort of information vitually everywhere. I can't say that I want to see or go through another design project that begins at the craft store.
