Overview

A simple, step-by-step design process from popular HGTV personality and Target style expert Sabrina Soto

People want their homes to look the way they do in their imaginations—beautiful colors, stylish furniture, and attractive lighting, with ample storage for all their stuff. The thing that stands between most homeowners and the home design they dream of is the lack of a simple, effective decorating process. They have the ideas, but they're hungry for the "how." In this accessible design manual, Sabrina Soto helps you realize your design visions one step at a time.

In Sabrina Soto Home Design, each chapter represents one decorating "layer," such as color or furnishings. Following along with the chapters , you'll build a design component by component. Packed with useful and time-tested tips and shortcuts like those Sabrina features on her TV shows and website, the book also shows you how to save money, time, and effort without sacrificing style.

  • The process works for any room, or for a whole house, and applies to any decorating style
  • Sabrina's high-energy approach and let's-make-this-fun attitude make the book both informative and entertaining
  • Sabrina is one of TV's most popular celebrity designers, appearing on Extreme Makeover Home Edition, The High-Low Project, Get It Sold!, Bang for Your Buck, Real Estate Intervention, and HGTV'd.

Sabrina Soto Home Design gives you an easy-to-follow process that brings your own decorating ideas to life to create a stunning, personalized home design.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Over the years, HGTV host and designer Soto developed a systematic approach to interior design, which she has dubbed layering, to use for every client and any space. Here she shares this step-by-step process explaining the necessary considerations—such as planning and budgeting—as well as the myriad choices available for flooring, countertops, wall, and window treatments, lighting, storage, furniture, and decorative accessories. Never advocating a particular style, instead Soto encourages amateur designers to examine their own needs, likes, and desires for each room of the home, supplying close to 200 color photographs for inspiration. VERDICT Her personal, accessible approach to design as well as the practical advice given make this book highly recommended for do-it-yourselfers.

I love Sabrina Soto and have watched her on HGTV for many years; I am so excited that she has finally offered her design expertise in book form for all to learn from...She is truly exceptional in her design and staging abilities! So far the book has been very informative and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a "How-To" Guide on decorating and staging no matter how big or, small your home is and no matter what your design style is!
