Overview

How do you make a home a haven? Whether your ideal is a romantic bedroom accented by softly luxurious accessories, an adventurous living room filled with vibrant throws and colorful pillows, or a serene dining room layered with pure white linens and cream-colored table settings, the space should be a clear and vivid reflection of you--incorporating your treasures, your passions, and the many aspects of your personality.

National design expert Chris Madden understands that comfortable, beautiful rooms start from within, taking into account the feeling you want a room to elicit, how you envision using your space, and the fact that spending time in your home must be a sensual and fulfilling experience for all its occupants, a haven that embraces the five senses.

Using the insights gained from two decades of design experience, Chris Madden has designed a simple, creative road map for decorating cozy, welcoming spaces that nurture and restore. Chris helps us to discover and explore our own design personality--whether Adventurous, Romantic, or Serene--and presents these three distinctive styles in a variety of settings.

Each style is broken down into its most basic elements, including texture and color, so anyone can create the stylish
looks. A list of essentials for each, including a guide to the perfect accessories, fabrics, and surface treatments, plus furniture suggestions, helpful color palettes, and ways to indulge the five senses form a detailed guide for creating the ultimate oasis.

For the romantic at heart, imagine gingham-checked sheets, a cotton summer slipcover on an easy chair, thick fringe on a curtain, or a cut crystal bowl. Adventurousdecorators will learn how to display their eclectic collections and create excitement with lush velvets and silks mixed with animal prints and vibrant colors. For those who seek a sense of calm in their homes, a serene space in creamy neutrals, filled with clean-lined furniture and flooded with natural light, creates a rejuvenating haven. Photographs of dozens of extraordinary rooms will inspire any decorator, whether his or her tastes favor simplicity or detailed exuberance.

Chris Madden’s practical, stylish, and comfortable designs have motivated millions to create spaces that are both beautiful and deeply personal. With Haven: Finding the Keys to Your Personal Decorating Style, she encourages everyone to decorate rooms that reflect the people who create and enjoy them.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
According to the host of Madden, HGTV's Interiors by Design, a "decorating fear factor" prevents many people from creating the home of their dreams. In this invitingly straightforward book, she sets out to demystify the process of decorating a home for everyone from design enthusiasts to those she refers to as "decorator-challenged." Finding a personal style is the key, the author advises, and in the introduction she identifies three broad style categories: romantic, adventurous and serene (readers can take a quiz to find out which one best characterizes their taste). Madden then analyzes the elements of each style by showcasing romantic, adventurous and serene rooms and including helpful sidebars that instruct readers on "How to get this look." The tone throughout is warm and upbeat: though Madden's clearly passionate about good design, she is able to convey her opinions on style without resorting to bossiness. Readers who find design books intimidating might be charmed by the author's story about how she chose her career after being berated and bullied by a high-profile design consultant: the lesson she learned is that personal taste is paramount, and that "If you love something, you can make it work in a room." Though it feels a bit simplistic at times, Madden's three-style rubric works surprisingly well at creating rooms with a unified, balanced look. Tips on the use of color and texture round out a volume that is both practical and pleasing to look at. (On sale May 4) Forecast: With a television show, appearances on Oprah, and a new line of home furnishings and accessories soon launching at J.C. Penney, Madden is a contender to take over Martha Stewart's soon-to-be-empty throne. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
