Home Decorating Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More fun than a barrel of monkeys! After reading some of the on line reviews, I was expecting ALOT. I am pleased to report that the Elaine Ryan Home Decorating Kit delivers what it promises AND MORE! So easy to use, but the fun factor of being your own decorator WITH confidence is what really turned me on. I also appreciate the convenience of the color bars, as I can pop them into my purse and have them handy when I am shopping for the perfect accent piece or paint color. Finally, if you are old enough to remember "colorforms" then you will LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the repositionable stickers which allow you to set up your room so easily. In short, this is a gift to yourself that keeps on giving and for the low cost investment it's a no brainer. DON'T LEAVE HOME WITHOUT IT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elaine Ryan's Home Decorating Kit Elaine Ryan's Home Decorating kit is a unique package. In it is a book by Elaine on color which becomes very personal for the reader. She goes into great depth on the importance of color in one's home. She has created a color bar that one can easily take to paint stores, fabric stores, and the like. It helps one make those important choices. Finally there is a grid with small furniture pieces that can be used very efficiently in designing a room. There is a lot here in one package - a real bargain compared to the cost of an interior designer today.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This kit will save you money!! This kit is a fun kit if you are designing one room or many rooms in your home. The kit includes many helpful books. I liked the book on designing with your child. It helps give you tips on how to work with your child so you end up with a room you both can enjoy. You will learn a lot about your child as you decorate with them. The paint samples are great for people who feel overwhelmed going to a paint store to pick out a paint color to coordinate with your room. Elaine’s color cards make it easy to pick colors and to coordinate them. Her paint cards are labeled even and odd numbers to make it easy pick the color. You can't mess it up. I really enjoyed the book on the Myths of Interior design. The only thing that concerns me is that it talks about becoming a designer and it almost makes it sound as though all you need is this kit and you can be an interior designer. The truth is that, yes you can be an interior decorator, but you don't have the skills needed to design furniture and know how to draw it out to show your clients how it will look. I do think this kit is a great first step to becoming a designer. Elaine’s grid board and furniture templates make it very quick and easy to figure out the perfect layout of any room. It will help you find the right size furniture for you project. Over all it is a great kit. It is well worth buying, because it will save you from repainting and returning furniture that will not fit or is the wrong color. It will help you make a happy organized room and home that you will love to be in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So very helpful! I thought I had my mind made up on exactly how I was going to decorate my new house. . . until I came across the Elaine Ryan Home Decorating Kit which a friend suggested to me. The more I read and experimented with the kit, the more I changed my mind on how I wanted everything to look. I ended up making some some bold choices that I would have never even thought of without this kit! My husband and I are thrilled with the choices we made and we have received many compliments on the new (and improved) look!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would be great if you had a huge house I like this the most for the ideas of colors. This would be great for someone who has tons of space and lots of furniture, or if you just like to play around with rearranging stuff. It comes with a big glossy colorful book, which doubles as a workbook to write in the answers to the questions it asks. It comes with over a dozen sheets of cling-on shapes of every type and measurement of furniture you can imagine to place on the included big (16x20inch) fold out board, so you can see how it would fit proportionately in your room. It also comes with a dry erase marker to write on it too. I don't know anyone with a baby grand or concert sized piano, but there are shapes for both of them if you have both. Of course it also has all bed sizes, chair, table, couch, & sectional pieces too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Overpriced for a few good tips This kit comes with a lot of features, but not all of them are useful. The main spiral-bound book has a few good tips, but it's got a ton of redundant information too. The book really focuses on color. I realize color is a huge part of home decorating, but it seemed to be an overwhelming theme of the book. The author even suggests at one point that you should command your subconscious to dream about colors that you want in your house before going to sleep. The kit is definitely meant for women, with one entire chapter devoted to "You and Your Mother," which was a little alienating for a male reader. Good thing my wife was interested in reading it as well. I also disagreed with some of the tips given in the book, like painting or wallpapering the ceiling the same bold colors as the walls. The author also claims that a white ceiling will not make the room brighter, but since color appears as color to our eyes due to its absorption of certain wavelengths of light, I'd have to disagree. Maybe it's just an artistic perception issue, but from a scientific perspective white surfaces DO reflect more light. I also didn't think the included color bars all matched each other. I'd be better off getting a FREE paint color pamphlet that just about all the major paint manufacturers make that automatically recommend matching colors and give example pictures of rooms painted with them. The dry-erase furniture grid board is pretty useful, and the peel-and-stick furniture cutouts are reusable as well. I could do the same with graph paper, but this way takes care of all the scaling automatically and saves time if you want to view several different layout options. All in all, the kit has a few good tips, and the furniture grid board is pretty useful. However, I think it's extremely overpriced for the content. If it was priced at $20-30, I'd consider giving it 4 stars, and maybe 3 stars priced at $30-40.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really easy to use. Helped with layout of furniture and traffic flow. I was able to do 3 different rooms on the one board. Helped me with layout and placement of furniture, ie., will it fit on this wall, etc. Color swatches were great! Kept me within the same pallet and saved matching issues for my home. I would highly recommend this product for the "do it yourself" decorator!
