Overview

A unique mix-and-match guide to decorating that includes tear-out swatches! The clever three-part format of the selector enables anyone planning a room to see whether the colors, textures, and patterns they're considering for walls, floors, and fabrics work together. To use, just flip the split pages back and forth to find the perfect elements. There are 70 suggestions each for walls and floors, and more than 200 different fabric choices for thousands of different combinations. Each spread presents winning combinations for a wide variety of styles and finishes; when you've found the right one, just bring the swatches to the store for reference. Information on the basics of interior design, deciding on a look, selecting a color scheme--all provide a little extra help, and the spreads are grouped in colors: neutrals and naturals; reds and pink; oranges; yellows, greens; blues; lilacs and purples; coffee and chocolate; and black, white, and gray.

Each page is split into three sections, with the top part showing wall color and coverings, the middle two fabric samples, and the bottom floorings and carpets. Each page has samples on the right, with the left side containing design advice, description of use and durability, and manufacturer information, with additional color combinations and page references for where these samples can be found. The book concludes with a brief overview of the use of color and texture in designing a room. Recommended for academic and public library collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
