Overview

With superb projects and more than 200 color photos, this stunning showcase presents the best contemporary wallpaper designs. The rich variety of patterns ranges from modern geometrics to feminine florals, from reflective metallics to designs that imitate stucco and wood. Better yet are the clever ideas for using the papers, including applying them in vertical strips, creating a patchwork pattern, and covering just half a wall. Or, for something different, use paper other than conventional manufactured wallpaper, such as old maps and sheet music. And remember: wallpaper isn't just for walls, so there are suggestions for transforming small accessories too. Even the most intimidated will find the instructions easy enough to follow.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gilchrist, whose At Home with Pictures and Decorating Your First Apartment provided practical information and decorating projects, here demonstrates how wallpaper can be used creatively in interiors and on decorative accessories and furniture. She reviews the various types of wallpaper now available-such as textured and faux-finished-and gives well-illustrated instructions on the basics steps of wallpaper application. Farkas (Painted Furniture: New Looks in Faux Finishing, Texturing, Stenciling, & More) provides the designs for the wallpaper projects, which include a photograph of the completed project with step-by-step instructions. Nontraditional wallpaper materials (e.g., playing cards, brown paper) are employed, and some projects include wallpaper's use as decoupage material on decorative accessories and furniture. Recommended for public libraries whose patrons desire more books on interior craft projects. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
