Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The authors of Period Design & Furnishing (Crown, 1988) have created a companion book that will educate and inspire amateur and professional decorators to enhance period interiors through the use of wall treatments and paint techniques. The uniqueness of this ``how-to'' book is found in the detailed history of the origins and use of each effect. Instructions for traditional wall treatments are included, as are ways of making new surfaces look antique, such as aging metal or wood. The appendix provides a glossary on equipment, materials, and techniques, and the directory lists supply companies in both Great Britain and the United States. Recommended for collections specializing in interior design and historic preservation.-- Gayle A. Williamson, Fashion Inst. of Design & Merchandising, Los Angeles
