Creating a comfortable home is more about what works for the people living in the houses than strict adherence to a particular school of design or the dictum of the paid professional. Undecorate celebrates the distinctly American quality of ingenuity, creativity, and resourcefulness in home design and shows readers how they can infuse a sense of personality into the decor of their own home. Undecorate features 20 homes that are entirely distinctive from one another, revealing how good design can be present in a melange of styles and tastes. Christiane shows homes from across the country--an apartment in Brooklyn, a bungalow in Nashville, a family home in Berkeley--that all exude personality and whimsy. Full of beautiful color photography and innovative ideas for developing your own decor dreams, Undecorate is the new style guide for every would-be home decorator.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
