Little information on designing

More of a motivational book with basic info on preparing a shopping list. Nothing a lay person already knows.

Waste of time

This book it’s very basic interior designing. Most people nowadays can learn more from just Instagram or YouTube videos. Was hoping to learn new stuff but everything was extremely basic

Perfect Newbie Choice!

The book is a fast read packed with nasic designer info and a bit more.. It seems to hit all the critical basis points. The Author includes 'to do' aspects of design that are super helpful. I have the feeling I will be referring back to this multiple times as I work on my home projects. The budget process was just one of the this key parts u felt more helpful then I originally would have thought. If you've got a couple of successful projects under your belt ; I'd assume a more advanced book is what you're looking for. Being new to Interior Design, I couldn't imagine a better read.person

Nice, informative book. Perhaps a bit simple

Crisp and clean narration and writing. An hour well spent, but it’s definitely a beginner’s level.

Nevertheless I enjoyed it.

I was hesitant at first as there are a few spelling errors. However this book was very informative and truly helped me to realize the basics that are so important to know. I will be referencing back to this book in the future for tips and reminders.

Good but short

Would have liked more elaborate examples to drive home the understanding of all the design principles.
