Front Cover
G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1998 - House & Home - 206 pages
From the author of Looking Great...simple and innovative decorating secrets for creating the home of your dreams.

Emmy-winning actress Linda Dano -- already known to millions for her role on NBC's Another World, her appearances on shows from Oprah to Rosie O'Donnell, and her talk show, Attitudes, on the Lifetime cable channel -- has also become famed for her fashion flair. After designing her own accessory line and opening a fashion-consulting business, she shared her beauty and style expertise in Looking Great..., praised by Newsday for its "warmth and lack of pretension" as well as its "pragmatic" advice.

Now, she follows that success with Living Great..., an equally delightful and readable guide that applies her principles of style to designing and decorating a home. Whether it's a small studio apartment or a mansion, Dano offers down-to-earth advice, teaching readers how to assess their current decor, get rid of clutter, choose colors, shop wisely, and transform their homes floor-to-ceiling...and do it all on a budget!

Dano covers the basics and beyond -- with everything from tips on painting and carpeting to easy, do-it-yourself projects that will add that extra bit of style. With the same smart simplicity that made her first book a hit, Dano presents a terrific, realistic guide to creating a place you'll be proud to call home.
