If you're like most of us, you have at least one room in your house that's too dark, small, or narrow or whose style seems bland or dated. "Room Rescues" offers simple and effective ways to make the most of every room regardless of its imperfecton. In each chapter, Jane Burdon tackles a different type of challenge in the same practical way. Start by studying the Golden Rules about decorating choices and use of space and then review the fully-illustrated solutions pages to see numerous creative decorating remedies from real homes. Next, consult the Decorations Palettes for suggestions for colour schemes, patterns, and styles and the Combinations section to see how to mix and match solutions when dealing with a room that has more than one trouble spot.

Addresses some of the most common issues- high or short ceilings, odd angles, poor lighting- and fixes both high and low tech. Some suggestions are a bit too high end for me (add a skylight?!), some can be DIY for anyone with a tape measure and willingness to get creative. Many good ideas delivered in small snippets, and more shown in the pictures but not addressed in print, this book is great for those who want to give their home a functional, if maybe quirky, comfort.
