Readers gain the benefit of Jameson’s experience—along with laugh-out-loud anecdotes—in this informative home-improvement guide. Like most of us, she’s had to complete her home while dealing with money shortages, time constraints, a skeptical husband and wisecracking kids. With real-life in mind, Jameson talks her readers through design basics such as finding a personal style, then moves through every room in the house and the yard, always maintaining a sense of humor and a scrupulous talent for detail. She exposes the tricks design magazines use to create those envy-inspiring rooms, and dishes dirt on how home design shows cheat. Even readers with no immediate designs on redecorating their homes will find Jameson interesting and amusing.
