The BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS NEW DECORATING BOOK has been the decorating resource readers have turned to for more than half a century. Like its predecessors, the Tenth Edition features solid instruction, hundreds of examples, and clear interpretation of design guidelines that generations of readers have come to expect. But this new edition of the classic decorating book also reflects today's approach to decorating—mixing styles for personal expression with an awareness of budget.

Organised in two parts, the first section is filled with room-by-room decorating guides and home tours to cover broad sweeps of decorating topics.
