I'll be the first to admit that I am not the most able person when in comes to decorating.  In fact, I'm pretty bad at it, so when I heard about this book I was interested in looking at the recommendations and see if there way anything that could help me.  And it turns out there is a lot here that is very helpful. There are specific designs that can be added to or adjusted as you see fit.  The instructions are straightforward and helpful.  The book is divided into sections by room, so you can see a variety of ideas for each room.Lots of great ideas here that can be used for specific projects or simply as inspiration. I liked that a lot of them can be done cheaply and as DIY projects.  A fun book for those who would like some help decorating their house.
