Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Interior design writer Serrell, whose monthly column appears in the San Francisco Chronicle "Home" section, here discusses creating a comfortable, stylish home for two. She reviews each room, including closets, with advice on how to use color, light, furnishings, and decorative accessories to create a cozy home decor for a couple, whether they be newly cohabitating or empty nesters, as well as how to accommodate entertaining. In addition, Serrell gives lifestyle advice on living as a couple. The numerous color photos depict a light, uncluttered country style of cool pastels and natural wood, and rooms are decorated with modern furnishings mixed with flea market finds. Recommended for large interior design collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
