Changing Rooms is a very tempting proposition for anyone who hankers after an exciting new look for a tired old environment. The BBC's Changing Rooms design team--Linda Barker, Andy Kane, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Anna Ryder Richardson, Liz Wagstaff, and Graham Wynne--have inspired many people to take the plunge and redecorate. Of course, many have probably also decided to stick with their magnolia walls after seeing the sometimes outlandish interior design "don'ts" that leave the home-owners gasping in horror. For the uninitiated, Changing Rooms is a television show in which the team spend £500 redecorating a room in a volunteer's home. Linda Barker, who is also the author of Just Junk, has selected 16 of the most successful rooms for this book. Included are an attic music room, a loft bedroom, a feng shui bedroom, a Victorian formal room and a Mexican kitchen. Practical advice on the use of colour and lighting, a checklist of materials and equipment needed and construction techniques from "Handy Andy" are included.
