(1 review) Write a Review

A practical how-to guide from the author of Mad About the House, the bestselling book and UK's number 1 interiors blog.

This easy-to-use dictionary of interior design answers all those questions you wanted to solve but were afraid to ask.

The book begins with the most important questions of all: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? And When?

The aim is to answer these before you start any decorating scheme and you will avoid the most common mistakes, save money and, most importantly, create a home that works for you and the people who live there.

Mad About the House: 101 Interior Design Answers is the super-practical guide that allows you to dip in and out so you can solve all your decorating dilemmas.

The chapters focus on Walls, Floors, Ceilings, Windows, Doors & Skirtings, Furniture Layout, Lighting, before finally a round-up of Fixtures & Fittings.

In addition to the no-nonsense practical answers, there are checklists and step-by-step guides to key decorating challenges - everything from How to Hang Wallpaper, to Arranging a Gallery Wall, How to Choose a Mattress and What Makes the Best Work Surface.
