This book is mostly about the personalities and histories of the decorators. I was hoping for a book of mostly decorating tips and information, so I was disappointed. But if you are a fan of the show and want to see scrapbook-like information about the stars, you will probably really like it.
Although this was put together in 2003, and alot of things have changed with Trading Spaces, some good, some not so good, this is a fun and quick book. Find out about your "old favorites", Paige, Ty, Vern, & Kia; all who have left. And the good old team still there, Frank, Amy-Wynn, Doug, Edward, Hildi, Laurie and Genn. This book includes information on each staff member, the designers and carpenters talking about themselves and some decorating tips. Very fun stuff!!
Gives plenty of info about each designer in their bios and why they do what they do.
This was fun to read. It is a neat insight into the "Trading Spaces" show. Although, of course, soon after I read it, they changed the format & got rid of Paige! There aren't really any decorating things to do, but you can get a lot of ideas from the pictures.
The title says it all, you really do go behind the scenes, and learn so much about not only the show but the designers as people also. Plus tips on how to brighten up a room on a budget.
