Front Cover
Chronicle Books, 2001 - Architecture - 143 pages
The perfect companion to the successful Garden House (40,000 copies sold), Floral House is a beautifully photographed book of ideas that are utterly modern in their simplicity and timeless in their appeal. With a fresh, clean approach to decorating with florals, this lush guide inspires the creation of elegant rooms that echo the color and beauty of nature. Floral House proves that it doesn't take a lot of time or money to transform the look of your home. Small simple accents have dramatic results--a flowery duvet rejuvenates the bedroom, a plain couch gets a facelift with a vibrant patterned slipcover, and the addition of rosy wallpaper transforms a dull kitchen. Whether it's soft shades, cool tones, sun-drenched hues, or deeper colors, here are hundreds of innovative ideas to suit any style. Arranged by color palette, Floral House offers a variety of color combinations for all rooms in the home. With page after colorful page of inspiration, Floral House is brimming with ways to create warm, inviting spaces that bloom with color.
