Home - Creating a Look to Suit Your Lifestyle
Beginning with a detailed and engaging reader questionnaire, this book helps do-it-yourself home decorators identify the home décor style that best suits them. It then leads them through a step-by-step decorating process for achieving that look in their own home. From floor to ceiling and everything in between, this unique guide covers all the details. It provides readers with a comprehensive style directory profiling 12 diverse home interior styles in large, glowing color photographs. Choosing from a range of home décor ideas, readers can explore the cozy interiors of Country and Colonial; the bold, bright décor of Asia, Mexico and the Mediterranean; and the simple, refined look of Minimalist, Scandinavian and Japanese-inspired interiors. Profiles offer in-depth advice for re-creating each style, including guidelines for choosing color schemes, paint effects, fabrics, decorative accents, furniture and much more. In addition, spreads feature ideas for every room in the house, from the living room and kitchen to the bedroom and bathroom. Kerryn Harper is the Deputy Editor of Your Home magazine. In addition to publishing dozens of articles on home decorating, she appears regularly on British television as an expert in the field of home decorating, consulting on such topics as choosing color schemes and decorating on a limited budget. She lives in Buckinghamshire, England.
