Library Journal

Roney, editor in chief of TheNest.com and cofounder of TheKnot.com, has created a practical guide aimed at the amateur decorator. Color photographs show kitchens, living rooms, dens, bedrooms, baths, and home offices in a modern, uncluttered style, with advice on how to approach interior design, including practical tips on maintaining a home. Sprinkled throughout are sidebars that discuss choices of furniture, flooring, curtains, and rugs and even information concerning proper table settings and spring cleaning. Web resources conclude the book. Recommended for public libraries.
