Debbie Travis’ Facelift offers fantastically innovative solutions for the decorating doldrums—and a fresh, simple approach to revitalizing any room of your home. Transforming a dark basement into a lively entertainment center or a restful retreat is a snap when you have the reigning queen of renovations guiding you. All you need to know is which mood—calm, cheerful, nostalgic, or dramatic—you want to convey. Then, with her intrepid philosophy of choosing colors to echo that mood, Debbie shows you how to create rooms that are brimming with as much personality as the people living in them. Each mood-inspired section will help you select the right color scheme for your home by highlighting some of the most inspirational remodeling projects from her acclaimed television show Facelift. Packed with beautiful color photographs illustrating before-and-after renovations, step-by-step projects for you to do yourself, and practical advice on giving your own home a facelift, Debbie Travis’ Facelift proves that having a home you adore can be a dream come true.
