With the same wealth of information that have made "Paint Magic" and "Fabric Magic" two of the most popular design books available, here is a practical, lavishly illustrated guide to floors and flooring--from sisal and wood to stone and tile. Each material is evaluated and shown in detail and as part of a decorated room. Full-color photos and drawings throughout.
