Synopsis: Have you ever contemplated homicide during a home remodel project with your significant other? Remodeling Your House without Killing Your Spouse is a frank, funny, and hands-on guide for avoiding conflict and surviving a remodel with your relationship intact. Professional interior designer Leslie Hart-Davidson has witnessed many relationships implode during her decade-long design career: fighting, name-calling, space-shaming, and even divorce instigated by design projects. In her first book of a new interior design series, Leslie shares humorous stories from the battlefield to teach practical lessons of effective communication, realistic budgeting, design terminology, and decor personalization. The homework and worksheets she includes are based on her “design is a democracy, not a dictatorship” philosophy and help to ensure remodels are proactively planned, meaningful, and most importantly, non-homicidal.

About the Author: Leslie Hart-Davidson, Allied Member ASID has helped thousands of people transform their houses into more livable, more lovable homes. She turned the interior design formula inside out in 2001 when she launched Hart-Davidson Designs (HDD) and began helping her clients understand the science behind the art of design. Leslie's approach to interior design is as revolutionary to that industry as Apple's approach to computing and consumer electronics. And the two are similar. By focusing relentlessly on creating the best possible "experience" for clients - in their homes, offices, or wherever they may be - she delivers truly outstanding services and products. Design is not about making rooms beautiful, it's about making living and working beautiful. But revolutionizing design practice is not easy. Disrupting the myth of the "genius designer," Leslie collaborates with her clients. How else can you transform lives and the experience of living and not just make pretty rooms? The HDD tagline "design is a democracy, not a dictatorship" sums up the revolutionary process that Leslie shares in this book. Whether it's teaching clients about the physics of color and the wonders of human perception, or helping them learn a new design vocabulary to better communicate with their family members, what is routine for Leslie is 180 degrees from "standard" design practice. In the traditional design world, clients pay for the closely held secrets of a talented designer. The result: a designer's vision and another glossy room porn shot in the portfolio. Leslie aims higher. She listens and works with clients to understand how transforming their space might lead to transforming their day-to-day activities, and over time, their lives for the better. And then she works tirelessly to set that transformation in motion. With this, her first book, Leslie puts some of that transformative power into the hands of readers everywhere looking to live better in their homes.
