This book has lots of practical advice for someone looking for ideas on how to decorate and furnish a home.  Unlike many other decorating books, this one does not have glossy photos of finished rooms, instead sketches are used to demonstrate a decorating principle. This may seem like a drawback but actually it works well because one is not distracted by colorful photos of rooms of furniture one does not own. The spare drawings allow the reader to focus attention on the point being made. Most topics are covered in short, easy to read paragraphs. The book covers everything from decorating mistakes, furniture arrangement, floors, windows, and more.
