Eye on Design Review

Eye on Design: Seven Steps to Getting Started on Your Construction and Design ProjectsAuthor Eileen Gould teaches readers how to build houses, design living spaces and tackle home improvement projects of all kinds in her new book, "Eye on Design: Seven Steps to Getting Started on Your Construction and Design Projects."

This comprehensive how-to book includes simple ideas for design and construction projects for homes, offices, major companies and retail spaces. From people who want to make changes to their space but simply can't afford it to do-it-yourself types, this book will provide guidance and helpful hints for everyone interested in design and construction.

Gould also offers tips to help readers protect themselves from dishonest contractors, hire interior designers and even find a reputable general contractor for any project. The book guides readers through the entire process from preliminary planning to setting realistic goals to the final design details.

"I've seen all in my 25+ years as an interior designer and general contractor. I have a full appreciation for the pitfalls, pratfalls and utter frustration of this process called remodeling and renovation," Gould writes. "But, I have come to see the results 99.9 percent of the time, and ultimately it keeps me coming back for more. I'm serving my clients. I have become very passionate in wanting to do the very best that I can in completing this process. So, it is my fervent wish and goal in writing this book that I share with you my desires to improve upon your lifestyle with the reconstruction and improvement of your environment."

Gould began her career at Penn State University and Medical College of Pennsylvania, where she earned a degree in medical technology. Unhappy in the field, she began attending design school and soon earned certification in interior design. After working for several design companies, she started her own business, Lifestyles Interior Design and Construction Inc., which has grown to include a staff and has been honored with many awards. Gould has appeared on Channel 7 news in California as well as HGTV's "Designer's Challenge." Several years ago she received her general contracting license and will soon begin studying green design and other environmentally sound practices. Active in Rotary Club, the Assistance League and Junior Achievement, Gould's philanthropic endeavors have also taken her to Mexico where she designed an orphanage for needy children.

Eye on Design: Seven Steps to Getting Started on Your Construction and Design ProjectsShe also designed a women's shelter. She currently lives in Southern California with her husband and two children. "Eye on Design" is her first book. More information is available at http://www.7stepsfromeyeondesign.com.
