Overview

Make the most of those lazy, hazy days of summer with decorating and entertaining ideas for the outdoors. From atmospheric enhancements like canopies and flower arrangements to lighting designs, table fixings, and comfy seating, this is what it takes to indulge fully in the summer spirit out on the porch, on the deck, or in the backyard. Luscious, sunshiny photos present projects such as pretty floral pillows; a porch swing slipcover; a painted vintage metal chair; and a tablecloth and napkins stamped with ferns. Get grilling basics; find ideas for summer bounty (zucchini and basil); chill out in the shade with pineapple mint coolers; and play yard games. You won't ever want the summer to end.

Gilchrist (At Home with Pictures; Decorating Your First Apartment) continues her tradition of practical guides to home decorating. Here she collects do-it-yourself projects created by a number of different designers for decorating porches and gardens. The projects are arranged by themes such as romance, nostalgia, lounging, and entertaining and will satisfy a variety of decorating tastes. Projects range from simple (e.g., a decorated votive candle) to more complex (e.g., slip-covered porch swing cushions), with well-written instructions that even amateurs will find easy to follow. With a variety of projects that show a range of decorating styles, this book will be useful in public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
