Feng Shui afficianados, and other spiritual decrators will love this informed, inspired and insightful update of the basics of interior design. Stoddard's principles are the backbone of my home rennovation plan. By following the precepts of this book I just gave my kitchen what looks like $20,000 worth of remodel for $3,000, because I knew what to look for and how to do without until I found just the right things, instead of settling for chintzy 'right now' dreck. Beware though, last year we sent our nasty couch to the curb and went without one for months, until we could research and find a couch worthy of us and our home. It is a good way to live;>
Ms. Stoddard has helped me have the courge to make my family's rooms our own. She has helped us to know how to make ourselves feel most comfortable. My home is now the most beautiful place to be. I have lived in this house 10 years, but now it is home. Thank you Ms. Stoddard.
