DESIGN*SPONGE AT HOME is like the Design*Sponge site –
photos (more than 600 of them) and hundreds of interiors and projects for
every style, every space, and every budget. Organized into 5 main sections to
make it as functional and user-friendly as it is beautiful–Sneak Peaks, DIY
Projects; DIY Basics; Flower Workshop; and Before & After–
AT HOME teaches the reader the principles of decorating and collecting,
includes must-read tutorials on everything from stripping and painting
furniture to hanging wallpaper and doing your own upholstery. The featured
spaces—some as small as 500 square feet and others as large as 5,000—are
accompanied by hints on everything from fabric selection to furniture
arrangements and even ideas for creating your own wallpaper that will help
readers personalize the looks for their own homes. And the projects are each
broken down by time, cost and difficulty so you know what you’re getting
into before you begin, and the gorgeous photos and illustrations show what
you can expect when you’re done!
