If Pinterest and Better Homes and Gardens Magazine haven’t been giving you awesome ideas, consider checking out this idea book filled with brilliant ways to incorporate different vibes and tastes that best suit your personal style.
4. The Whimsical Home by Susanna Zacke and Sania Hedengren
This one I find especially entertaining because it offers ways to spice up your home without completely breaking the bank. Everyone wants a nice place, though not everyone has the extra money to just go out and spend thousands of dollars to re-decorate. Check this one out to discover ways to add a little something new to your home using thrift-store finds or inexpensive pieces.

7. Japan Style: Architecture Interiors Design by Tuttle Publishing
I love seeing all the various ways that people from all over the world decorate their homes as well as the specific ways they incorporate special pieces. Japan Style is a wonderful interior design book if you really enjoy the Asiatic decorating tastes.
8. Domino: The Book of Decorating: A Room-by-Room Guide to Creating a Home That Makes You Happy by Deborah Needleman, Sarah Ruffin Constello, and Dara Caponigro
You shouldn’t re-decorate to impress other people because hey, they’re not the ones that live there, you do. So, naturally, your place should be a reflection of all that you love and find beautiful. Domino provides great advice on how to go about the re-decorating process in a way that is as stress-free and enjoyable as possible.
9. Undecorate: The No-Rules Approach to Interior Design by Christiane Lemieux
Undecorate really keeps it honest about how one should go about spicing up their home. You do not need to go into debt to have a nicely decorated home. Quite the opposite actually. Plainly, when it comes to decorating, you want to have a theme and vibe that mixes well within each room, though, at the end of the day, there really are no rules on how you should present your home. Have fun while re-decorating and don’t worry about if others will like it.
Do these books give you inspiration to do some re-decorating?
