Not a decorating book
on 2 November 2016
I have had this book since 2011 and have decorated several rooms since then. I bought this book hoping to get ideas on how to decorate rooms and have gone to it several times hoping to get inspiration. Each time I was sadly disappointed.
What I was thinking/hoping the book would help with: various colour schemes or advice on how to counteract bad lighting in rooms, e.g. if your room is north facing what to do; use of wallpaper, different paint effects, different styles, e.g. the colours to use and how to decorate if you want a Moroccan style, Scandi/Retro etc. Unfortunately there was none of that.
The book seems to recommend placing a load of nik-naks in your room - the rooms seem all very busy with ornaments and white walls, mismatched furniture. No inspiration for me at all. I am about to get rid of the book. Not worth the shelf space.
