Overview

Stripes and checks, florals and pictorials: these are the favorite patterns of country-style decorating, and they instantly add color, warmth, and personality to any room. Country Living’s lavishly illustrated and informative new volume shows readers countless ways to introduce an array of patterns into their home, along with expert advice on exactly what makes various combinations work, and why.
Photos display a wealth of charming and colorful country items: vivid quilts, hooked rugs, Beacon blankets, block-printed wallpaper, spatterware, and more. There are inviting rooms dominated by a single stunning pattern; lovely interiors with a perfectly calibrated combination of checks and stripes; and spaces in which carefully patterned accents complement a primarily neutral background. Page after page of stylish ideas are accompanied by practical advice on pattern dos and don’ts, along with valuable tips and sidebars throughout.
It’s clear: from classic country printed fabrics to whimsical novelty designs, the possibilities are endless!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Combining check, plaid, floral, and stripe patterns has the potential of becoming a design disaster, but Hueston (Decorating with Books) explains how they can be successfully integrated. Numerous color photographs are interspersed with one-page detailed descriptions. Recommended for large interior design collections.
