Both of these books contain numerous projects for decorating the home. Henderson provides "anyone-can-do-it, no-sew decorating" soft furnishings projects for every room in the home in a somewhat formal country style. The instructions are well written, although an amateur might need more step-by-step illustrations. Jewitt gives projects in a modern style with most requiring some use of power tools. His well-written instructions are also illustrated with step-by-step photos that give projects for every room of the house including storage units, decorative accessories, and some soft furnishings.
