Review: The Design Cookbook by Kelly Edwards

The Design Cookbook: Recipes for a Stylish Home

Through stunning photographs and step-by-step instructions, designer and lifestyle expert Kelly Edwards brings a myriad of looks, tastes, and approaches to chic home design in this guidebook. From the kitchen and the bedroom to the home office and the out-of-doors, Kelly illustrates how to achieve the best color, texture, proportion, and overall design aesthetic and passes along decorating tips from amazing designers and tastemakers. Individual chapters contain a wide array of images and inspiration for the respective spaces along with an assortment of do-it-yourself “recipes” to achieve just the right personality.


What a fun book filled with interesting and original home decorating ideas.  From traditional to inventive, there is something for everyone.  I was inspired to make new and exciting decorating choices including new and unexpected mediums.  Some of my favorites are Noa's DYI Space, Kid's Room, Starters and Sweet Touches, Sibylle's DYI Kitchen Cart and so many more.  I have read and reread it so many times...it has notes, tabs and markings throughout...if you want a change or just love decorating, this book is for you.  
4 stars!
