Like the TV show Trading Spaces? Then you'll love this behind-the-scenes peek at the show. Stories that made it on the air and stories that didn't. Very well-written by then-host Paige Davis and offering some of her background as well. Appealing both textually and visually with an innovative, but not cumbersome, layout.
This book is probably past it's prime as Trading Spaces was not what it once was, but this book is still interesting. While reading, you find it is a "diary" of sort by Paige during those years, and you also get a small behind the camera look here and there throughout the book. It is a quick easy read.
A fantastic journal written by Paige Davis, former host of TLC's Trading Spaces, that chronicles a year of her life with the show. This book includes TONS of color photographs of Paige, the designers and the rooms featured on the show.
I enjoyed the show so much years ago, and had seen every episode by now, I think. I collected every book I could about the show years ago, this one I had somehow overlooked, but I saw this book recently in a used bookstore and thought I'd grab it to see if there was anything I had missed. I'm glad I bought it, has a lot of cute anecdotes, lots of pictures, kind of rounds out some of the stories as well as adds some details you wouldn't have known just from watching the show. Not a decorator's book (except for some ideas in the pictures and some funny stories!), or a biography, but a fun addition to the nostalgia of the more wholesome type of reality show where you switch rooms for a few days (not wives or whatever on earth they are doing now). If you're into that show, and like a light read with a lot of visuals, this would be a nice book to add to the collection. If you weren't familiar with the show or don't know the people who are regulars, it's still a funny one-year memoir of a reality show with some really demanding logistics and time pressures. Cute and fun!
