With a mantra to keep it simple, Mark provides a touchstone and a template on how to create spaces that are balanced and beautiful personal expressions that fit in your budget. Style has a new face—yours! Now, you too, can think big and learn to master and hone your creative visions, and better yet, how to implement and create them.
