These days few can afford to hire an interior decorator.
No need. This book and an open mind are the only requirements to give your home the professional, yet melt-into-a-sofa look and feel you’ve always wanted. Starting with the basics, At Home With Laurie Ann cracks the code to creating the home of your dreams on the budget you have. The instructions are simple and straightforward, and the look is cozy and comfortable. It’s practical because Laurie starts with what you already have, moves a piece of furniture here, makes a substitution there, adds unexpected color and tops it off with inexpensive (but expensive-looking) purchases. The result is a thrifty transformation!

Laurie Ann begins with a basic 9-point questionnaire to help decide your individual decorating needs then gives you tips such as moving furniture around and using color and textures to give the room more appeal. You will be amazed at all the thrifty transformations you can accomplish! You’ll even pick up a few recipes along the way!
