Decorating with Architectural Trimwork: Planning, Designing, Installingby Creative Homeowner
Synopses & Reviews
Decorating with Architectural Trimwork fills a void in the existing literature on trimwork. There are plenty of books that tell the reader how to install trim around windows and doors, but few that also explain how architectural trim can enhance a room's aesthetic appeal. Responding to the recent trend of building houses as empty boxes, author Jay Silber shows readers how to choose and use a wide variety of moldings, trim, and design concepts to transform a sterile, open floor plan into a warm, inviting, richly textured home. Trimwork shows readers how to decorate their homes with trim and wall panels so that their walls, passageways, and stairways can radiate the warmth, character, and beauty of the well-trimmed homes of eras gone by.
Shows homeowners how to choose and use moldings and trim. Includes design concepts. Over 500 full-color photos and illustrations.
