but it's an expense that sometimes we can't manage.
The affordable alternative is to undertake the work yourself,
and Secrets of a Stylish Home is just the book to show you how.
Cate Burren is an interior designer based in Cambridge, England
and is a regular contributor to interiors magazines.
This book is both a practical guide and a visual reference of attractive design ideas.

using colour, creating your scheme and managing your project,
Secrets of a Stylish Home takes you through each stage, distilling the knowledge that Burren has gathered over the years into clear, easy-to-follow steps.
Her insightful advice is accompanied by real-life case studies,
drawings, plans and beautiful images by interiors photographer Simon Whitmore.
