Sabrina Soto Home Design: A Layer-by-Layer Approach to Turning Your Ideas into the Home of Your Dreams by Sabrina Soto


A simple, step-by-step design process from popular HGTV personality and Target style expert Sabrina Soto

People want their homes to look the way they do in their imaginations—beautiful colors, stylish furniture, and attractive lighting, with ample storage for all their stuff. The thing that stands between most homeowners and the home design they dream of is the lack of a simple, effective decorating process. They have the ideas, but they're hungry for the “how.” In this accessible design manual, Sabrina Soto helps you realize your design visions one step at a time.

In Sabrina Soto Home Design, each chapter represents one decorating “layer,” such as color or furnishings. Following along with the chapters , you'll build a design component by component. Packed with useful and time-tested tips and shortcuts like those Sabrina features on her TV shows and website, the book also shows you how to save money, time, and effort without sacrificing style.

  • The process works for any room, or for a whole house, and applies to any decorating style
  • Sabrina's high-energy approach and let's-make-this-fun attitude make the book both informative and entertaining
  • Sabrina is one of TV's most popular celebrity designers, appearing on Extreme Makeover Home Edition, The High-Low Project, Get It Sold!, Bang for Your Buck, Real Estate Intervention, and HGTV'd.

Sabrina Soto Home Design gives you an easy-to-follow process that brings your own decorating ideas to life to create a stunning, personalized home design.

Editorial Review

Exclusive Home Decoration Tips from author Sabrina Soto

Choosing artwork for your home can be tricky and tiresome! But here are some simple suggestions to help relieve the pressure.

  • Keep the style of your dĂ©cor in mind when making your selection. You don't want your artwork to clash with existing items in your room; so, if your room is traditional, stick with traditional artwork. The same applies for modern, rustic or contemporary rooms.

  • Buy artwork that is proportional to other pieces in your room. You want to create a sense of visual balance. Be careful not to choose pieces that are too large or too small for your space. A good rule of thumb is that your art work should be 60% to 75% the width of what you are hanging it over. So if your sofa is 80″ wide then your art work should be no more than 60″ wide.

  • If you cannot afford large pieces of art, choose a series of smaller pieces that you can hang together in rows or collages.

  • Avoid problems with glare by skipping the fancy frames and glass; unframed art is really popular right now and will add more depth to your space. Look for canvases stretched on frames, or prints on wood or metal backings. This will making shopping a little easier and often reduces the price of the piece.

  • Always hang your art at eye level, no matter how tall your walls are. This will ensure the artwork will draw just the right amount of attention.

  • Most importantly, buy what makes you happy; buy what you love!
