The pauper's Homemaking Book established her as the master of 'style on a shoestring', and her short section in the book on decorative paint finishes inspired many home-decorators to attempt simple colour washing and rag-rolling for themselves. As interest in the art grew, she decided to write a complete book on the subject, covering all the techniques, and illustrating them in colour.
