Linda Barker's Home-made Style: 100 Great Decorating Ideas
From pretty painted plates to a woodgrained cupboard, from classic styles to ultra-modern chic, a top designer and TV star has come up with 100 great ways to make a difference in every room. What would it take to transform your home--a few small items, like a gilded lamp, a ribbonwork cushion, and a cherub clock that will take pride of place on the mantelpiece? Or are you ready for a bigger change--perhaps some elegantly flowing muslin drapes to frame the window (no sewing required!), a dado border on the wall, and stenciled marquetry floorboards? All the popular techniques are included: stenciling, stamping, gilding, d coupage, papier m ch , sewing, and ribbon weaving. It's everything you need for decorating success! 256 pages (all in color), 8 3/4 x 11 1/2.
