(as of May 11,2021 14:32:47 UTC – Details)
What? A DIY valet chair that artfully corrals coats, heels, and handbags in a compact 12 square inches? Rubber garage tiles-to-go that bring sexy back to a tired old kitchen floor in one click? A folding herringbone fireplace liner designed à la Popsicle® sticks? Decorate This, Not That! picks up where author Janet Lee’s debut book, Decorating in a Nutshell, leaves off, as the quintessential modern, chic, budget-friendly guide to decorating and living posh, portable, and proud in pint-sized spaces. Chock full of inventive, noncommittal space-alluding décor and multifunctional storage ideas that won’t hurt walls or windows , Decorate This, Not That! is in a style league of its own.
A formerOprah Show producer, Lee has all the tips necessary to create an exceptional environment on a budget of time, space, and finance. She also knows how not to lose control of achieving the perfect small-space environment, and steers readers clear of these pitfalls. Assuming that small spaces will be either vertically or horizontally challenged, Lee has an abundance of plans for how to maximize space, storage, time and budget for every room. Decorate This, Not That! decodes small-space decorating into easy to digest snack-size bites for every petite room in (or out of!) the house, including an outdoor pocket garden. Written in a peppy, clear, encouraging voice with dramatic “before” and “after” photos, and bolstered by sidebars of interactive time, money, and space-saving tips, it is impossible for the decorator not to engage and succeed. One-of-a-kind DIY lighting, storage, and décor projects are clearly illustrated with step-by-step instructions and a materials list. Each project is assigned a ranking based on the amount of prep time and budget needed for completion. A full design resource guide and a list of offbeat décor outlets is included, plus a roundup of small-space tool kit essentials and patterns of one-of-a-kind wall and paint stencils.
