Chris reveals countless easy, inexpensive, and wonderful ideas for personalizing your home. She explains how to discover your "style profile, " whether it's Traditional, Contemporary, Adventurous, Romantic, or Serene. Then, room by room, Chris offers dozens of terrific decorating tips. For a Romantic foyer, try tucking favorite photographs, postcards, and invitations into the frame of your hall mirror. Or design a Serene centerpiece by placing natural objects like pinecones, acorns, or pomegranates in a pretty straw basket. Along with this wealth of style tips, Chris covers the Basic Principles, with essential information on budget, proportions, materials, placement, and more. Easy how-to projects allow you to create the perfect kitchen message center, an elegant dining room screen, or a great bathroom stool.
