Decorating can be foolproof, when it's done the House Beautiful way! With practical, down-to-earth guidance, and the magazine's photos as inspiration, even true beginners will find out how to get it right the first time...and every time.


Go from clueless to faultless! Home decorators who long for a contemporary loft-style apartment, chic Colonial living room, or cozy beach hut bathroom can make their dreams come true...effortlessly. With House Beautiful 's straightforward, no-nonsense approach to everything from painting and wallpapering to lighting and window treatments, reviving a home is as easy as Ready, Set, Decorate! The segment "Ready!" explains the many wonderful options to choose from--colors, patterns, surface treatments, or hardware--and offers confidence-building tricks. "Set!" leads you through all the preparatory stages that spell the difference between success and failure. And "Decorate!" shows how to do the job yourself or brief a professional--and how to avoid the pitfalls, whichever route you take. Plus, there's practical guidance on quick, fun-to-do projects that add value and beauty to any home.
