Have you ever wondered why readers buy home decorating books in the first place?
After teaching interior design for 26 years and interviewing thousands of people, the main answer is two words: more confidence!
Hi, I'm Mary Cynthia Knowles. My family-owned interior design firm has worked in over 5,000 homes. I've also taught thousands of do-it-yourselfers to create professional results in their own homes.
My book, Decorate by Design with Mary Cynthia: Decorating from the Inside, Out, helps people find their personal design style, then gives them principles of classic design that actually work, no matter their taste, style or budget.
The book covers every aspect creating a home decorating project:
- Personal creativity and expression
- Getting more from a decorating budget
- Working with color
- Furniture and furniture placement
- Window treatments
- Home accessories
- Working with subcontractors and salespeople
I've also included a unique bonus: a professionally produced and edited DVD on using color more effectively. This DVD contains over 80 minutes of decorating tips and secrets found in the book, plus dozens of room shots with me explaining how it all works.
Decorate by Design with Mary Cynthia: Decorating from the Inside, Out gives your customers the inner joy of self-expression and the outer world of sound interior design advice!
