Ty Pennington: Good Design Can Change Your life
Extreme Makeover’s Ty Pennington reflects on the emotional stories of families and lives he has helped on television through his book, Good Design Can Change Your life. Pennington notes the ways in which individuals can bring about their own passions and creativity through their unique personal spaces.
Focused on the three main components of each home – sleeping, living and work spaces – these environments allow for the most interaction between family members and friends; spawn creativity and keep you productive. Don’t be shy with colour, intricate design or wallpaper. As Pennington explains, using the power of three – grouping smaller items in threes, using a three-colour palette, etc., can simply and easily set a particular mood in a room. While personalizing your style, the book provides inspiration from art, museums and accent pieces that you already own when transforming your domain. From designing rooms to grow in for your little ones or specialty spaces for a one-of-a-kind look, Pennington’s got you covered.
