Booklist Review

In Campbell's third decorating book, she makes her analysis room by room, reviewing different elements--and not just swatches and color--such as style, lighting, and focal points. Checklists accompanying each element ensure that the amateur decorator will remember the hidden questions, including budgets. The rest of the text is filled with examples of great comfort, showcasing rooms both large and small, from spotlighting an elegant hallway (a room in its own right) to a wonderfully sensual bathroom. Finishing touches are, as the last chapter's title, the ultimate ending, with wonderful visual depictions of cushions, throws, objets d'art, wall displays, and flowers, among others. --Barbara Jacobs
