Must-read before a renovation project, 30 July 2014
This book more than lives up to its promise of a design masterclass. It takes a small number of homes and explains clearly, step by step, exactly how the finished results were achieved. When first flicking through the book, my husband's and my reactions were 'wow'. All the rooms looked stunning. After carefully studying the book and the photos, I have gone from being totally stuck with how to complete our house following a full renovation to knowing exactly what to do. All building work is already finished but our home is just a blank canvas without much furniture, lights or accessories. My only regret is not finding this wonderful book before commencing work. It would have saved huge amounts of time and some money, particularly with the lighting design and the colour scheme - two areas I struggled with, even with an architect on board. Thank you, Kelly Hoppen, for sharing your knowledge and experience. I feel as though I have learnt so much and I am very grateful.
