"This book is so practical -- I referred to it every day when I was decorating my new house! I was mixing old furniture from my previous home with new furniture I had just purchased. I wasn't sure what to put in which room, where to turn, or whom to trust. Terrence's book walked me through everything, step by step. It was a lifesaver!”

“I am the first time owner of a new apartment in a newly constructed condominium building. The floors were concrete, the walls unpainted, the windows were barren, the counter tops were unfinished, etc.  I was clueless as to where to begin, and was in desperate need of help. Fortunately, a friend of mine suggested I contact Terrence Tullgren, the author of this book. Following the guidelines and suggestions as outlined, within a short period of time, we transformed a dull, empty apartment into one of comfort and beauty.
I highly recommend “How To Save Thousands And Avoid Costly Mistakes Decorating Your Home,” for ideas and suggestions to help you create your “dream house”—your inspiration will be a reflection of “you!”

“This is a must for any architectural firm’s library. If they would hand this out to their clients at the development stage of the process, I am sure it would save everybody a lot of hassle and headaches, in addition to saving the client money.”

"Decorating Tips That Will Save You Thousands" is something I  definitely needed when I was recently furnishing my winter home in Arizona.
 If I had known that measuring the turns in my home before buying furniture was a #1 requisite I could have saved myself a great deal of money and time.  I needed to hire a carpenter to make a template, and remove the trim from my armoire to enable it to fit thru the door to the master bedroom.
 I have just purchased another book for my daughter who is getting ready to move into a new home. I am sure she will find in invaluable.

Before, I was just running in circles clueless to where I would start decorating my apartment. Thank you for making decorating and remodeling as easy and beautiful as your e-book!”
-D. Garcia—Miami Beach, Florida

What I really like about Tullgren's ideas regarding space and decorating is that he sees the importance of finding and developing, through the process of renovation/decoration, one's unique "inspiration".  I think that the most important part of making a home your own is to truly do just that, and to follow through with it. Tullgren's knowledge of the materials shows his devotion to the art of "home", and his ideas for dividing the work and classifing each catagory should be a tremendous help to DIY home decorators.
