How Not to Decorate by Colin McAllister
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Ever considered giving your conservatory a Moroccan theme? Thought you could create modern art from a couple of old polystyrene floor tiles and some cat litter? Or bought a lampshade to match the wallpaper that matches your duvet that matches the inside of your wardrobe...? Then you need help. In fact, you need Colin and Justin. Justin Ryan and Colin McAllister take you on a hilarious journey through the design landscape of modern Britain on their mission of 'aversion' therapy. With chapters on Horrible Hallways, Catastrophic Kitchens and Good for Nothing Gardens, and sub-chapters on Themed Rooms, Gadgets and Wallcoverings, Colin and Justin guide you through everything that is bad, wrong and just plain evil in interior design. To make sure you don't fall into any of these frankly terrifying design traps, you need to learn by bad example, and that's where this book comes in. Step away from the MDF, put down your stencil kit and give up your weekly pilgrimage to the DIY superstore: this book will show you definitively how NOT to decorate.
