Product Description

He lisps, he indulges in drag queen humor, he gives great decorating strategy. The Discovery Channel's Christopher Lowell has created one of those cable niches (and his own home fashion line at a major store chain) by paring things down to the basics for the design challenged. In the first half of this 98-minute video he demonstrates his seven-layers philosophy (walls, floor, upholstery, rugs/fabrics, surfaces, accessories, and plants/lighting) by filling an empty living room layer by layer. You may disagree with some of his premises--for instance he abhors white walls and patterned sofas--but by following his organizational scheme, large projects will seem more doable. Along those lines, the second half of this tape, "The Seven Psychological Layers of Design," focuses on breaking down the fear and lack of confidence that prevent so many people from daring to change their homes. He uses the same room from the first half, augmenting the segments with Zen-like advice on "mental interiors" ("Where there is fear, there is no creativity" and "Choose something rather than nothing"). --Kimberly Heinrichs
