Style at Home Magazine, June 2006
Excerpt from Style at Home Magazine:
“Home staging expert Debra Gould, a.k.a. The Staging Diva of Six Elements (sixelements.com, stagingdiva.com), shares two books that will help you look at your home in a new way.
What Color is Your Slipcover? How Discovering Your Design Personality Can Help You Create The Home Of Your Dreams by Denny Daikeler
I decorate homes for clients who believe they can’t make their current house work, so they decide to sell. The irony is once I’ve redecorated, my clients see what they could have enjoyed all along. What Color is Your Slipcover? is for anyone whose home isn’t the sanctuary they’re looking for. Borrowing from What Color is Your Parachute?, this book helps you define your design personality and create an action plan.”
The Home Zone: Making the Most of Your Living Space by Caroline Clifton-Mogg
Top interiors writers and hundreds of inspirational photos of real homes guide readers through five popluar decorating styles, and discuss how to work with color, lighting, flooring, window treatments and soft furnishings. I say ‘real homes; because unlike in some books, these ones look lived in. You’ll learn about space planning, and issues specific to each area, from choosing the right bathroom faucet to picking a kitchen layout that works.”
On Wednesday, the first day, and maybe the last day that the outside temperature was above 10 degrees for a while, two painters transformed my front door and (single) garage door with low luster Caliente, a beautiful red from Benjamin Moore that you suggested in the October issue of Style at Home. It looks fabulous. Many thanks, Janet Armstrong, Toronto. Oct 22.
Janet, thanks so much for writing to let me know, very cool! Congrats on your new look!
