I think this is one of the better organizing/decluttering/home design books. Even if you don't follow the eight week cure, there are some interesting ideas. ( )

Great idea for a book, web site and seasonal phenomenon. I heard about Apartment Therapy from a friend who was doing the Fall Cure, and it was perfect timing since I had just moved into a new apartment and after the first rush of buying furniture, got kind of stuck. I'm not going to follow every step (flowers - ick) but I now have some useful ideas to move forward. ( )

The main bulk of this book is devoted to describing an 8 week "cure" for your home, which addresses everything from repairs to regular cleaning to cooking at home to what art you display. It is equally applicable to houses, though it does focus on some issues inherent in smaller spaces. In addition to giving you a structured set of tasks to improve your living space and how you use it, this book helps you determine what style you'd like to achieve and what types of problems your particular personality is likely to encounter. Even if you find following through with the whole "cure" a bit too intensive, this book has a lot of helpful concepts and techniques. ( )

From not enough space and too many things to not knowing what color to paint the living room walls, many of us struggle with our homes. Now Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, frequent makeover expert on HGTV’s Mission: Organization and Small Spaces, Big Style, shares the do-it-yourself strategies that have enabled his clients and fans to transform their apartments into well-organized, beautiful places that suit their style and budget.

Week by week, Apartment Therapy will guide you to treat common problems, eliminate clutter, and revamp even the tiniest space. Here is an eight-step process that includes:

A therapeutic questionnaire to help you get in touch with your personal taste and diagnose your home’s physical, emotional, and energy flow issues

A prescription with recommendations for each room based on your needs and lifestyle–including tips on how to use color, lighting, and accessories

A treatment plan, including regular maintenance schedules to ensure the ongoing health of your space

Illustrations of floor plans and decorative examples that allow you to visualize concepts before you begin

With surprising ease and without elaborate professional help, Apartment Therapy will help you clear a path through disorder and indecision–to reveal a home you’ll love.
