Timeless, graceful, livable: that's how you want your home to look and feel. This elegant and practical style is now within your grasp -- not with a checkbook, but through resourcefulness, wit, loving attention to detail, and the inspiration from this book. Based on interviews with architects and interior designers across the country, this astonishing compilation presents gloriously achievable decorating ideas that radiate confidence and energy. Discover new ways to bring harmony to a room; enlarge rooms with color or make bigger ones more intimate, and impart tranquillity to busy areas. There are also strategies for maximizing space and updating rooms to fill changing needs. Just imagine a cozy window seat enfolded with theater-style curtains; decorative prints that impart old-world flavor to a kitchen; and a sitting room featuring an antique daybed -- making it perfectly set up to welcome overnight guests. From walls and windows to floors and details, every choice is beautiful and practical, too.A Selection of the Country, Homes & Gardens Book Club.
