Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's been the classic book on house style for years! Combine style, comfort, function, and economy. Whether you're restoring an entire house, adding a child's room, or redoing a kitchen, these simply elegant ideas for designing interiors--shown in over 1,000 photos--will provide endless inspiration. Know what to do before decoration starts, including assessing a home, putting in adequate storage, and adding heating, wiring, and plumbing. Acquire a sure sense of style and how to use color, pattern, and fabrics. Select flooring, and get unique ideas for papering and painting surfaces; lighting; and disguising flaws. There's even advice on making access easier for the disabled. Then, take a thrilling tour of magnificent homes across the globe--from an airy white living room hung with richly colored carpets and dotted with striking pillows, to a bedroom in an 18th century chateau with painted wood panels, each one displays a range of classic design styles. 368 pages (all in color), 9 1/4 x 11.
