At first this book looks like a children's book; but it is a simple guide to some wonderful decorating tips from Jonathan Adler. The pictures are eye-catching, clear and full of simple tips. There are pages for you to fill in your own ideas, in order to develop your own style (What do you want your house to say?)
Styles, muses, inspirations are given. The book is filled with color pictures that show different thoughts, what to do with all sorts of accessories, like books and flowers and pillows.
This book would be for any one except the most experienced decorator or those who absolutely can't or won't accept anything but traditional Chippendale.
But, speaking as a person who has a British Bobby's helmet next to their wooden Shichifukujin, the Seven Gods of Japan...have some courage, have some fun, smile when you walk into the rooms of your home. Use Happy Chic for ideas, and technique.
