House Beautiful gives us an inside look at how interior designers create their magic. It's savvy, elegant, inspiring, and sure to equal the success of 750 Decorating & Design Ideas, which has sold nearly 65,000 copies.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books combined will give the amateur decorator more than 1000 ideas for creating a stylish, comfortable living space. Country Living provides a wealth of ideas for decorating every room of the home as well as exteriors and gardens; tips on collecting, conserving, and caring for the home and its furniture and decorative accessories; and seasonal decorating suggestions. Advice is dispensed through captions for color photographs that explain each tip shown. Do-it-yourself decorating projects are more for inspiration, as no instructions are provided. House Beautiful contains a multitude of color photos that depict a sophisticated, professionally designed style accompanied by quotes from contemporary and historic interior designers, e.g., Dorothy Draper, Kelly Harmon, and Barbara Barry. Advice for decorating every room of the home contains information about furniture, lighting, color, pattern, storage, display, and entertaining. With the wealth of ideas for amateurs, both books are recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
