Publisher Comments:

"Thank you," wrote a reader to Design*Sponge creator Grace Bonney, "for teaching me that houses don't have to be frumpy and formal. They don't have to be matchy-matchy or rigidly modern." They can just be comfy and unique and reflect who you are, no matter how small your budget or space.

That reader is one of the 75,000 unique daily visitors to Design*Sponge, who make it the most popular design site on the web. The site receives 250,000 pageviews every day and has 150,000 RSS subscribers and 280,000 followers on Twitter. Design*Sponge fans have been yearning for the ultimate design manual from their guru, Grace, and she has finally delivered with this definitive guide, which includes:

  • Home tours of 70 real-life interiors featuring artists and designers
  • Fifty DIY projects, with detailed instructions for personalizing your space
  • Step-by-step tutorials on everything from stripping and painting furniture to hanging wallpaper and doing your own upholstery
  • Fifty Before — After makeovers submitted by readers of Design*Sponge — real people with limited time and realistic budgets
  • Essential tips on modern flower arranging, with 20 arrangements
With over 700 color photos and illustrations and projects that are customizable, relatable, and affordable, this is the democratizing design book everyone has been waiting for — and all for only $35.00!

Love this book. The ideas and usage are fantastic. With a little creativity and or your own twist to these ideas you to could use this book and maybe one day you too could write your own "Design Sponge" type of a book. I am using the idea of lighting for my kitchen with the hanging light bulbs, (100 of them, but only 10 of them really work). Buy the book and see what I mean, you will love it too. Again, I love this book, and Powell's Books has the greatest prices and customer service. I have been buying books from Powell's since 2005.

thank you grace bonney & the design sponge team for creating this book. it's such a breath of fresh air to the stale & typical design focus that is so common in the us. it's just my style. this book is so awesome. it has so many pictures, design inspiration ideas, diy tips, flower arrangement how-to's and an even where to shop guide. it's like the big boss just handed you her little black book on what to find & how to do it right in the design world. this book would make a phenomenal gift for yourself or friends. you will not be disappointed!
