My Review:              
At Home With Laurie Ann is a lovely decorating book with tips and instructions from a professional decorator. Her practical style and cost-saving ideas allow the reader to create a home haven in their own style. Laurie Ann begins with a basic 9-point questionnaire to help decide your individual decorating needs.

Ideas in the book cover themes, color, walls, furniture, floors, and windows. There are suggestions for each room, including an office. There are even make-over tips for the exterior of the home.
There is actually so much more in this book. She has holiday decorating ideas and even recipes for each occasion. (I have to try the Orange Cake). The photographs in the book are very well-done, plentiful, and the book is printed on high quality paper. At Home With Laurie Ann is a beautiful and useful book.

About the Author:  Laurie Ann McMillin Ray has been involved in the Southern California interior design community since the 1980s when she began decorating model homes for her father, well-known builder Corky McMillin. Since that time she has built a solid reputation as both an interior designer and the owner of several decorating stores. She is a self-taught, innovative go-getter who is known for her eclectic style.

  3. My decorating tip is.. Always check out yard sales!! I have found some of the best things there. Artwork, chairs, rugs, etc. Some things are not worth it but there are many things out there that I couldn't believe I found.

  8. Don't enter me in the contest. I have this book, which is full of ideas!

  9. My favorite decorating tip? One item on its own, unless it's really eye-catching and unique, looks either lonely or out of place. Group with others and it becomes an attractive collection (of coffee mugs or pencils or so on).
