Overview

From meeting a client for the first time to doing the survey, from negotiating a price to managing the job, everything that goes into implementing an interior design project is here, thoroughly and attractively illustrated. Designers--and those who want to know what it's like to be one--will get a comprehensive overview of the skills needed to work successfully in the field. They'll see how to create, present, and interpret floor plans, elevations, and perspective drawings, and transform blueprints into beautifully redone living spaces. There's advice on color schemes, floor and wall treatments, fabrics, and soft furnishings--and an essential chapter on professional practice. The gallery of color photos and drawings showcases imaginative solutions to common problems in every room.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gibbs, an educator and founder of KLC, the London interior design college, tries unsuccessfully to pack into one book all the elements of an interior design education, which she acknowledges takes up to four years to complete. Professionals who need to review certain skills might find this book useful, but the treatment given is too cursory to be of much use to students, who can spend at least a semester on skills such a drafting, presentation technique, and budgeting. Gibbs's Curtains & Draperies: History, Design, Inspiration (LJ 8/94) was such an excellent work that this one is a tremendous disappointment.
