Overview

They’re the rooms where you relax, where family and friends gather, where most of home life gets lived: the living and dining rooms. Who better than the experts at House Beautiful to show how to make these spaces attractive, inviting, and fresh? Divided into two sections, this stunning guide features hundreds of lavish, inspirational images, enhanced with checklists and explanatory sidebars. “Design” covers everything from planning to selecting the permanent elements of the interior: this is the time for thinking and research, for making crucial long-term decisions about the layout, lighting and electricity, flooring, storage space, and furniture. “Decorate” is devoted to the look, focusing on color, wall finishes, window treatments, and those small but important touches that make a house a beautiful home.

    Great Idea Book

    This is full of pictures of living and dining rooms, and includes discussions with the designers or owners about their style and what they like most about the rooms. Great to review when starting a project to ensure you don't limit the possibilities.

    Great Design Inspirations For Whole Rooms That Flow

    The House Beautiful Design & Decorate Living & Dining Rooms text is full of model-home like pictures of perfect decor. Sure, there are a few color choices that seem too bold for my tastes but most of it is helpful and inspiring for designing your own place. For example, the huge beams (architectural features) shown in some of the great rooms demonstrate simple items that could be done to add value and beauty to your home. The images do not center on a small section of a room, rather they show you a completed look with the entire room. It's easy to make one section look great. This book helps you conceptualize an entire space that flows and coordinates. There is not one look either. You'll find contemporary, modern, and even a little country flair. The majority of designs are crisp and show a degree of sophistication. I'm definitely using this book to inspire my own home decor and recommend it. I would like to see specific paint color choices provided and where some of the purchases were made.
