“Heavy on ideas...elaborately illustrated...perfect for those would-be decorators who like to look at lots of pictures. Remarkably crisp and invariably eye-catching, the color photos make up the bulk of the book. Some projects...include instructions for do-it-yourselfers...this book will be used to spark the imagination. It does that very well.”—Booklist.

This WAS on my wish list, thinking it would be an endless resource of ideas and inspiration. I borrowed it from my local library first, and boy am I glad I did. THIS BOOK IS A HUGE WASTE. It screams early 90's and late 80's. There are tons of horrible faux finishing (gag) and what I call crafty projects that just wreak of "I did this myself"...and your friends would be able to tell. The "valuable tips & info" are the type of thing you would have garnered from watching HGTV in their start-up days. Absolutely nothing useful for today. Save yourself the boredom and your wallet the dollars and get something that's CURRENT...run from this waste of a book!
as an aspiring designer, i love this (huge)book. it's very thorough and best of all, it isn't one of those books made in the early nineties that are out of date. whether you're just learning about design or you're a professional, this is a great resource.
