Overview

From the design experts at House Beautiful come brilliant, varied decorating ideas for the floors beneath your feet and the walls that surround you.

With inspiring photos, specially commissioned illustrations, and expert advice, House Beautiful can help make everyone's dream of a beautiful home come true, starting from the ground up and with the very foundations of decorating: the walls and floors. Every home decorating question is answered: How do you use color to create a mood, whether in a serene bedroom or a bright, warm kitchen? Which works better in a given situation: wallpaper or paint? What about adding special effects, such as painted borders? Should you refinish the original wood floors or put down ceramics? Where does it make sense to have carpeting and where should you think about mosaic tiles? Hundreds upon hundreds of great ideas show how to add style, beauty, and warmth to any space, whether it's a modern or traditional home, a country cottage or sleek urban apartment.
One of the leading creators of illustrated books, Duncan Baird Publishers, has produced this attractive volume. The company is widely recognized for developing works with innovative design and strong authorship. A Selection of the Homestyle Book Club.

Tessa Evelegh is a writer and stylist, specializing in interiors and gardens. She has written more than 15 books including House Beautiful Decorating School and House Beautiful Window Workshop.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Tired of the same old wall paint and carpeting? Evelegh (House Beautiful Window Workshop) here presents some stunning alternatives. Part of the "House Beautiful Workshop" series, this gorgeously illustrated book covers a wide array of floor and wall designs, but it is not a how-to manual; readers will need to look elsewhere for tips on re-creating the featured effects. Instead, this is more of a traditional coffee-table book meant to inspire and encourage. Recommended for large collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
