I love Sabrina Soto and have watched her on HGTV for many years; I am so excited that she has finally offered her design expertise in book form for all to learn from...She is truly exceptional in her design and staging abilities! So far the book has been very informative and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a "How-To" Guide on decorating and staging no matter how big or, small your home is and no matter what your design style is!
