Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
To explain her approach to interior design, Fishbein (Embellish Your Home) takes us into her own home, Seven Oaks Ranch, where she has lived for 18 years. Her colorful country decorating style mixes an abundance of flea market finds with handmade personal touches, creating rooms that are chock-full of objects yet never seem cluttered. In more than 200 color photographs, she shows each room of her home and describes her various decorating choices. Included are 20 do-it-yourself projects, such as a pleated lampshade and wall stencils, with instructions adequate for experienced crafters. VERDICT Fishbein successfully gives new ideas to those desiring the ever-popular country look.
