Overview

New Decorating Book, 10th Edition (Better Homes and Gardens) by Better Homes and Gardens


A revised and updated edition of the flagship guide from the authorities on home decorating

The Better Homes and Gardens New Decorating Book has been the decorating resource readers have turned to for more than half a century. Like its predecessors, the Tenth Edition features solid instruction, hundreds of examples, and clear interpretation of design guidelines that generations of readers have come to expect. But this new edition of the classic decorating book also reflects today's approach to decorating—mixing styles for personal expression with an awareness of budget.

Organized in two parts, the first section is filled with room-by-room decorating guides and home tours to cover broad sweeps of decorating topics. The second section is organized by integral design topic: color, furniture arrangement, flooring, lighting, etc. Plus, inviting photography is complemented by workbook-style illustrations to help novice decorators understand the application of design concepts to specific rooms.

  • Advice for making smart color choices
  • What you need to know about mixing colors and patterns
  • How to select and hang window treatments
  • Ways to make smart use of wall art
  • The essentials on color theory
  • Trade secrets and tips from real designers

Whether you're a new homeowner, an apartment dweller, or looking to spruce up any tired space, Better Homes and Gardens New Decorating Book shows you how to give a real home high-impact style—without breaking the bank.
