Candice Olson knows all about the challenges that can come with decorating a room: ceilings that are too high or too low, spaces that are too big or too small, couples who have different tastes, families who have different needs.
Those are the kinds of obstacles she overcame in decorating the rooms in her newest book, “Candice Olson: Favorite Design Challenges.”
Olson, who rose to fame as host of an HGTV show, shares the process of restyling 24 rooms, from a basement suite to an attic guest room. She includes swatches and samples, floor plans, photos of the rooms before her makeovers and plenty of “after” pictures. Olson also explains how she solved the challenges presented by each project and describes the style elements used in the room.
“Candice Olson: Favorite Design Challenges” sells for $19.99 in softcover.
