Ty Pennington titled his new book "Good Design Can Change Your Life." And he should know. For five years, Pennington has been host of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," the ABC series in which deserving families are given new or renovated homes. He draws ideas from those makeovers for his book, which is intended to inspire everyday folks to make décor changes that make their own lives a little better.
The book focuses on "Ty's Secret Rooms," the rooms Pennington designs for the families featured on the show. He gives readers both a close-up view of those rooms and an explanation of how each design was inspired. "Good Design Can Change Your Life" is scheduled for release this month from Simon & Schuster. It's priced at $25 in paperback.
