Country Living Simple Sustainable Style: Ways to Make Your House Your Home
This highly accessible decorating primer gets a beautiful new cover. Designer Randy Florke--who has been featured in Country Living, the New York Times, People magazine, and on the Today show--showcases his warm, homey, and sustainable heartland sensibility. Florke explores his "three muses" of design--comfort, economy, and color--and presents real-life examples of rooms that radiate charm. Comfort resides in line-dried quilts and overstuffed sofas. Economy means items chosen from flea markets, thrift stores, or grandmother's attic. Country color is the faded blue of crockery and the pale shades of damask tablecloths. Anyone hoping to transform a home from ordinary to extraordinary will find thrifty and stylish ways to design, plus a numerous "Quick Fix" sections with cheap, fast solutions to common problems.
