Use what you have decorating

by Lauri Ward
This book has great advice on furniture arrangement and art placement for creating a comfortable, restful room. Each chapter covers a common decorating mistake and suggests a solution. There are many real-life before and after pictures from the author's own decorating business in clients homes.

While I liked Use what you have decorating, the edition I read is somewhat dated. She recommends painting walls white, which I find rather boring, and the furniture in the photos is from about 20 years ago. There is likely a newer edition, though, as I have seen newer-looking cover photos on the internet. I didn't have a choice since I got this from the library.
