Deborah Needleman is a terrific editor - of words, and now, of rooms and living spaces. In her very readable book, "The Perfectly Imperfect Home," the author offers her advice and expertise on a very important subject - how to make your house your home. She includes succinct advice from the great decorators, sage commentary on what to keep and what to throw away, and valuable rules for what to add to a room to make it exactly right - for you and your family.
I used to think that my taste was so irredeemable and so rooted in some kind of male, post-college, National Football League time warp - I own a green velour couch! - that no one, not even Deborah Needleman, could help me. I was wrong.
