A Practical & Helpful Guide

I've purchased a number of books on the subject of interior decorating, but out of all of them this is the one I've consistently found to be the most practical & easy to follow for achieving the best results in our home. I don't have a background in interior design etc... but based solely on what I've personally seen from the changes made, as well from the reactions of everyone else, this book is just indispensible!

Absolutely the best!

After spending hours looking through piles of interior design books and spending a small fortune on home decor magazines, I purchased Decorating for Good. It will be my final purchase. I love it! I am in the process of getting some new items for my living room and dining area and had not a clue where to start. I had a decorator in (an exasperating experience) and will probably never do that again! After reading through the basic principles in the book, my daughter and I had the living room rearranged in 15 minutes and I knew exactly what I will need to purchase and what I can wait and purchase later. I was able to better define one end of the living room, which must function as a foyer as well. THANK YOU CAROLE!!!WEll Done!!!

Unbelievable Results

We are a middle class family with a very nice home filled with items I had meticulously chosen. Nonetheless, I was constantly moving furniture, re-hanging pictures, re-arranging table top items, etc. in an effort to achieve the "decorator" look that you see in magazines. It was hopeless. I, like many of my friends, assumed that I simply had bought the wrong furnishings. I stumbled upon "Decorating for Good" and miracles began to happen. I couldn't believe my eyes when I started using Carole's formula. My husband immediately asked how much money I had spent. Imagine his delight when I quoted the price of the book! At long last I feel my home is settled and PERFECT! THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART, CAROLE!

The Perfect Gift for the Holidays!

After reading a newspaper article about Carole Talbott, I finally 'Visually' saw what I have been looking for. I ran out and purchased this book. I have an L shaped room that we use for entertaining and like to have everyone in sight. I have been stumped with this decorating dilemma for over five years. High ceiling here, fireplace there, waterfront property on the oppisite side, nothing seemed to balance out. I had to see what this book could do for me, so I sat down and read it CAREFULLY. I found it very easy to read and understand. Each chapter is a new step. She starts you where you need ot start, and keeps on going to the last detail. Then, I got busy and the transformation was unbelievable. I can not express to you what a wonderful feeling the room has now, just by following this step by step guide. So, if you are serious about wanting to redecorate without a decorator, this book "Decorating for Good" is what you need. Maybe some of today's decorators need to take some of Carole Talbott's advice. I had hired the best in my area and never felt the warmth and comfort I now feel after using the steps I learned in this book, "Decorating For Good." Enjoy it-I did! P.S. It is my favorite gift for giving this Christmas, everyone is getting a copy.

I LOVE this book!

If anyone has any interest in decorating at all, you have probably already seen just about all there is out there in the way of ideas, just with a new twist here and there. This is not what this book is about. What I loved about this book is that it is a "formula" of HOW to put your furnishing and accessories togehter to show them off to their best advantage. It's as simple as that. The fact that there are no pictures did not make a difference to me, since the items that I have to work with, would not be the same as whatever pictures may have been shown. Like I said, this book is ALL about using a "formula". I have found it EXTREMELY helpful and easy to understand.I find myself going back to reread certain chapters, to keep my rooms looking "fresh".
