If you could change your life by changing your home--would you?

Would you take that first step, pick up that paintbrush, clear that clutter, rearrange...your life?

Because you can.

Moll Anderson, lifestyle saver, passionately believes anyone can transform their life by creating a home environment that is both comfortable and reflects the inner self. Her mantra: Change your home, change your life. All you need is some motivation, inspiration, and the infusion of energy that accompanies change.

A designer by trade, Moll's celebrity clients nicknamed her "The Transformer" because she literally changed more than just space. But you don't have to be a celebrity or a millionaire to benefit from Moll's creative genius. You don't even have to "own" a home to "have" the home of your dreams.

Using her proven techniques and cost-effective tricks of the trade, Moll shows you how to create the perfect environment for everything from entertaining to creating your own sanctuary.

You "can" have more-more ideas, more passion, more creativity, more fun! Discover who you really are and how you want to live inside "Change Your Home, Change Your Life."

"Change Your Home, Change Your Life" is filled with hundreds of photos, how-to projects, tips, wisdom, and advice from the lifestyle saver you want as your friend. It covers everything from why you may want to change your life to how-by incorporating Moll's Five Must-Haves: paint; lighting; music; flowers; and fabric.

Color Your Home (USED)

More Info
Color Your Home is a personal, intuitive exploration of vibrant, sensual colors in nature, and an easy-to-use guide for expressing our passions and selves in the colors we choose to adorn our homes. But how does one go beyond the "rules" of color to discover what hues inspire and drive us and show us how to incorporate them into living spaces? Design expert and author Carol Bass encourages everyone to throw out the rules and start fresh by building a new relationship with color through nature and the outdoors. She shows how to identify colors that stimulate and thrill us as individuals, making it easy to explore this connection and create charm, warmth, and a unique sense of individuality.
Bass gently guides even the novice decorator on a journey of discovery, showing how small changes with color can create a more captivating room. After all, nature is not shy about color, so why should we be? Rich, orange-red tones of farmers market tomatoes, lavender-black hues of mussel shells from the beach, the patina of aged wood and stone -- all can provide endlessly stimulating color ideas. Bass shows us how to think of using these tones as ingredients in recipes to liven up a room. Take a giant step outside, breathe in the scent of peonies, wrap yourself in a field, and bring those feelings home.
Carol Bass is an artist, interior designer, and prolific author. In 1988, she cofounded Maine Cottage Furniture in Yarmouth, Maine, whose designs may be found in 200 stores across the United States. Her award-winning furniture designs have been described as "straight from the heart," "spontaneous and direct," and "bold and full of energy." Her work has been featured in Metropolitan Home, Country Home, Redbook, Country Living, In Style, Coastal Living, Better Homes and Gardens, House and Garden, and Cottage Living. She lives in Maine and is the author of Maine Living (Gibbs Smith, 2004).
