Frank Fontana–nationally renowned design expert and guru of low-cost, high-style design–is HGTV’s go-to guy for chic make­overs on a dime. In a witty, conversational tone, Fontana shares his techniques, breaking down the process room by room, project by project, and divulges his secret tips and tricks for how to create high-style homes the low-cost way. Fontana analyzes several beautiful homes, dissects the individual design components of each room, and applies his “Look for Less” principle to help readers build their own look on a budget. The book also includes DIY projects that are accessible and doable for readers of various skill levels, as well as advice on how to be a savvy shopper when looking for home decor items or furniture.
