Overview

Whether in front of the camera or behind a pen, Linda Applewhite has a reverence for beauty . . . [She] imparts her vast design knowledge in a skillful and succinct manner and enables the reader to grasp the basic elements of her truly iconic style."

"Linda Applewhite's touch is like that magic paintbrush that Walt Disney used to transform landscapes. Her designs blend colorful details, whimsical touches, inventive spatial solutions, and richly patterned fabrics to turn something ordinary into dreams that are real."

-Peter Whiteley, Senior Writer,
Sunset Magazine

"Applewhite is a master at digging up and building up bones, those special architectural features that imbue a home with character. Her book offers hope for everything, from the cookie-cutter tract house devoid of distinction, to the bare-box bedroom that even the most beautifully embellished homes seem unable to avoid."

-Candace Ord Manroe, Senior Decorating Editor, Traditional Home
