Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful Prior to renovating my house I decided to get some background information on the realm of interior design. I found this book to be very informative and the use of imagery was helpful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected This book was not what I thought it would be. I was looking for a book that would teach me the principles of design but this book focused more on how to start a career as a designer. If that's what you want I'm sure this book would help but for my needs, I was disappointed.
