Next, Nina takes you on a guided tour of ten very individual homes she has designed in the United States and Europe, including her own London apartment. Outlining her strategy for each location, she demonstrates how professional decorators rely on simple tricks like displaying fresh flowers and colorful table or bed linens, moving furniture around for different looks, using a minimum of expensive fabric for a maximum effect. and hanging pictures in new ways to enliven and elevate any decorative scheme.

From Library Journal:
Spender's good idea of publishing a book as an AIDS fundraiser resulted in 26 letters drawn by Hockney and 26 short pieces by a who's who of contemporary writers. Hockney's drawings are true to his style, yielding bright, cheery, surprising mini-artworks. The writers' poems, essays, etc., use the letters of the alphabet as inspiration. The book that results from Spender's idea and Hockney's drawings turns into a one-of-a-kind collection of short writings by such distinguished writers as Joyce Carol Oates, John Updike, and Susan Sontag. The bonus successful merging of the visual and the written will give some comfort to AIDS victims. Recommended for academic, hospital, museum, and public libraries.
