Synopsis: 25-35 year olds with an eye for style and a brain for economy will find the hottest, cleverest decorating ideas and use them to turn an ordinary apartment into a fabulous abode.
Have an apartment that's hip and chic, filled with cool attitude and drop-dead style. Better yet, do it on the cheap, and even when the landlord prohibits so much as a new paint job. This is simply the must-have manual for young people with little money and less time, who have had quite enough of boring white walls, unflattering fluorescent lighting, and outdoor-grade carpeting. Every decorating dilemma is smartly solved. Want color on the walls? Then try fabric stripes that adhere with nothing more than spray starch. Does the floor have unsightly stains? Whip up a floorcloth that looks high-end but isn't, because it began life as a cotton tablecloth. Every project and suggestion is worth its weight in gold--but costs just pennies.
From Publishers Weekly:
Ledoux's guide to funky apartment decorating on the cheap proves even the most dramatic overhauls can be achieved with a little fabric, creativity and, of course, a glue gun. This cheerful over-sized paperback packs a mod punch on every colorful page, giving DIYers easy to follow instructions for such projects as an adjustable ceiling globe echoing shades of Noguchi, as well as a sunny atomic clock that makes those vintage George Nelson versions look dour. Ledoux emphasizes retro, and quickie projects like an idiot-proof fabric-covered roller shade help transform even the dreariest room into a mid-century haven. Though some readers may be too busy to decoupage a dresser with '50s reproduction fabric, even time-strapped urban hipsters will delight in projects like the "mostly no-sew pillows" that add a colorful edge to a dumpy sofa. Ledoux's southern roots show as she helps readers create a Warhol-like "celebrity triptych" using a photo of Elvis. Fun, fashionable and, best of all, easy, Ledoux's projects will provide even the least crafty of young adults with ideas to jazz up their humble apartments.
