How often do things deliver more than promised? This book does. Billed as a volume to help you decorate temporary digs like rentals, dorms and such, Robin Bernard and Adrienne Nappi’s Decorating to Go, Easy Ways to Feather Your Temporary Nest (Creative Homeowner, 2009) is a dynamite little book for renters and homeowners alike.

Decorating to Go by Robin Bernard and Adrienne NappiIts pages are teeming with design and decorating concepts and DIY projects; even those with large decor libraries will find good ideas here.

There’s guidance on space planning like how to better define functional spaces and about smart furniture choices like buying and modifying pieces to serve multiple functions.

Bernard and Nappi help you simplify the quantity of your possessions to better work in a small space and give advice on making a comfortable spot for overnight guests.

Don’t miss the entries on how to work with the dreaded white walls, creative camouflage and arranging artwork. And the callout “Quick Tips” are espresso shots of assistance.

It’s not only how-to; Bernard and Nappi focus on expressing your personal style in your space.

A practical and pretty book, ideas are well-illustrated with oodles of photographs. I also enjoyed its fresh graphic design; fun typography never hurt a decorating book.

There’s gobs more here…pick up a copy and have some fun wherever you hang your hat.
