Decorate This, Not That! Small Space Decorating with Janet Lee is Fun

The first warm and sunny day in Spring will often have you taking a survey of your living space. Warm and cozy winter lighting transitions into soft life-lifting yellow beams of sunshine –  forcing you to take a fresh look – or drag a weary eye – across your living space. And if you’re anything like us, you often sigh  to yourself “I need some newness in here.” But what’s to be done to spruce up a small space where every square inch is utilized to function, store, and showcase your style? Luckily at just the right moment of seasonal change, I was invited to a book signing hosted by G ARTS books at Rizzoli Bookstore on Broadway for the launch of Emmy Award-winning television producer Janet Lee’s second book, Decorate This, Not That! It’s not just a book it’s a MIY (Make-It-Yourself) movement!

Janet Lee, a famed television producer who has worked with some heavy-hitting American tastemakers such as Martha Stewart,  Nate Berkus, and Oprah Winfrey, knows her way around a small space. Her first book, Living in a Nutshell, is a testament to making more out of less. Her new book, Decorate This, Not That!, is PERFECT for us small-space dwelling city girls and guys with an eye for design, function and finds.  Something I am able to do to make my small space a little bit more beautiful.

During the book signing, her guests were treated with many gems of wisdom from her book, trivia questions, and prizes, and a really fun DIY decoupage crafting project which I have to say was relaxing after a long day of hustle and bustle in New York City.

Flipping through the book Decorate This, Not That!  You will find multi-functional storage ideas. Chapters are organized by both indoor by room and include TIMED  step-by-step design challenges that will flex your style quotient and mentorship for hard-core design junkies and first home buyers alike.
