    How to Make your house beautiful, with House Beautiful!

    I bought this book, because I was going to paint my house. This book shows you how to put colors together to make a beautiful room and beautiful house all together. I love the colors in here, as they are up to date yet classy and lasting. I didn't want to be too trendy with my colors but, I wanted to update everything. It showed me exactly how a color would look on the wall and how it would look with furniture similar to mine. It was invaluable for my needs.
