Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books contain numerous quick, easy, and inexpensive ideas for achieving a country look. Both show every room of the house; both also offer instructions for a few projects that will be useful for experienced do-it-yourselfers. Abbott focuses on the various country styles popular now e.g., traditional, retro, and modern by showing a room and then identifying the elements that make the look (e.g., paint, fabrics). Atkins offers a more accessible approach by providing numbered sections that are easy to browse as well as sidebars that give advice on color schemes and the like. Both books are recommended for large public libraries where there is a continued interest in this decorating style. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
