I received a book that told me I need to talk to someone to improve my house in Whiterun.

Who is this person, and where can I find them?

I was so avid for an answer, misreading the question as "how do I improve my mouse"? – DrFish Nov 16 '11 at 12:17

The same person you bought the house from also sells the furnishing for it. For the house in Whiterun (Breezehome) this person is Proventus Avenicci, who you usually find near the Jarl.

If he's not near the Jarl, he'll be on the Grand Porch. Took me forever to find him .:) – Chuck Callebs Nov 16 '11 at 15:22
Note: I've found that the option to buy upgrades isn't available when he is in his quarters. – Canageek Jan 13 '12 at 1:51
i've found that the option to buy upgrades wasn't available at all until he was in front of the throne. – Maslow Nov 23 '12 at 15:09
Yep as Canageek says, if you can't find a way to buy upgrades and Avenicci is in his sleeping quarters etc, then make sure to sleep a few hours till everyone is in the main dragonreach areas. he will then allow buying furniture – wired00 Dec 11 '12 at 19:56

You can buy and furnish the Breezehome away from the throne and bedroom.

Go up the stairs on the right of the throne and wait by the table with the maps. At about 6 AM Proventus comes out and will sell you the house and furnishings while he looks at the maps.

Less chance of interruptions by others and you get it all done in one meeting.

All you have to do is find the man that you bought your house from and there should be a option to decorate your home.

You talk to Proventus, the Jarl's Steward (unless you've completed the civil war side quest).
