Creating the perfect home begins with a dream-- and House Beautiful has 500 ways and one breathtaking big book to make it come true. An array of magnificent photographs showcases a rich assortment of serene retreats in a special landscape format, including easy-care looks, paradises for nature lovers, cutting-edge domains, and spaces that are cozy and comfortable. Smart suggestions parade across each and every page, all bound to spur the imagination to creative heights and arranged in an easy-to-follow numbered layout. Most important of all, home decorators will find these ideas wonderfully simple to implement, because they focus on surrounding yourself with the furnishings, colors, accents, and art that you already love: the emphasis is always on creating an atmosphere that reinforces what you value and how you want to live. The introduction features a "Find Your Style” quiz that points readers directly to the right chapter for their personality type and needs, be it the Epicurean Haven with the baroque reading room and antique regency chairs or the Eclectic Environ, featuring a fun mix of a Thai teak table and Greek shepherd’s chest.
