NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
The most comprehensive and complete home book from Apartment Therapy, featuring every aspect of design and decorating from floor plans to paint, specific rooms to style approaches, with the goal of setting up and living well in a place you love.
“A complete and happy home is so much more than a series of pretty rooms. Between these two covers, we’ve captured everything we’ve learned at Apartment Therapy about decorating, organizing, cleaning, and repairs, so you can make and maintain your own fabulous home.”
—from the Introduction
Getting a room to feel right is more instinct than science. You know a great space when you see it. Apartment Therapy trains your eye with more than 75 rooms, from bedrooms to kitchens and living rooms to kids’ rooms and workspaces. Explore every detail—lighting, color palettes, flooring, and accessories—that brings a home to life and, most important, makes you happy in it.
I was really disappointed in this book. I have an apartment and I am always looking for a good way to decorate and rearrange the design of the apartment. I felt like “Apartment Therapy Complete and Happy Home” is made for houses. There really isn’t a lot of apartment options in the book. I think the tips were great. How to properly hang art and do window treatments. I don’t have a lot of room to work with. There was information about gardening and swimming pools and I live in an apartment complex, I can’t do anything with the lawn, garden, or swimming pool. It is really just another book about homes not about apartments. I think the title is definitely deceiving.
