“Plans, sections, elevations and other drawings are the principle means of communicating design, yet to so many they remain impenetrable. With The Room Planner, Paula Robinson has not only exploded the mystery around architect's drawings in an inclusive and helpful way that people can easily understand, but has also woven into the fabric of the book a myriad of tips, tricks and techniques that will inspire her readers to create beautiful and functional homes for years to come."
