Book Review
Believing that wonderful paint effects need not entail the many complications of oil-based materials, acclaimed painted-finishes expert Debbie Travis has developed easy step-by-step methods for terrific-looking treatments, all achieved with water-based supplies.

From Publishers Weekly
Devotees of Travis's interior design show on HGTV will be thrilled with this companion book, which reprises many of the designer's recent projects and offers additional insight for those seeking to tackle their own home makeovers. Design junkies who love a good "before" and "after" section will find an ample one here. Though many of the "before" pictures are too small, the overall effect of Team Travis's work is impressive. Travis boldly uses orange, red, chartreuse and Parma yellow on the once-drab walls of her surprised clients. She admits, though, that some subjects are initially dismayed by her choices. "If we had not already destroyed the old kitchen, I believe he would have called the whole thing off," she quips about Pierre, recipient of flaming orange walls. But in the end, all of her homeowners are...
