Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have a couple of Jane Cumberbatchs books already and find myself flicking through them (at the lovely photography) if I want decor inspiration as they have lovely timeless ideas in them that are easy to achieve. It has instructions on how how to improve your home and make spaces for - outdoors/study/sleeping etc. easier and more pleasing to live with. There are instructions on how to make loose covers for chairs, lampshades, decorated sheets, cushion covers, bags and other useful but pretty things that are not too technical and other practical household tips. The ideas are big on style and low on effort - always a winner for me. If you have read Jane's books before, this is just as good - I was very happy (especially at £2.80 ) and am sure I will get lots of use out of it.

Focus on easy, budget decorating ideas which cover everything 27 July 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
There are plenty of decorating books on the market, but what makes DECORATING EASY: CREATE A SIMPLE, COMFORTABLE HOME WITH PURE STYLE so attractive is its focus on easy, budget decorating ideas which cover everything from using space more efficiently to adding furniture and fittings which work aesthetically. Chapters use step-by-step color blocks to outline tips - such as in 'Sleep: 10 Ways to Make a Calming Bedroom', making for easy at-a-glance instruction perfect for any collection catering to busy home decorators.
