"Wherever and Whichever way we choose to live, most of us need ideas, inspiration, and starting points for our various rooms. Clearly, the decoration of any room is made up of the sum its various parts: lighting, flooring, walls, woodwork, trim, windows, storage, soft furnishings, furniture, art and objects -- or objects d'art -- flowers, plants, what you will, and, of course, details like hardware, fabric trims, and so on and so forth. A color scheme and budget has to be decided upon, a list drawn up of what is currently available and what has to be bought and, above all, a decorating style must be considered which will suit both ourselves and our home. It is a great deal to think about and a responsibility to get right, because whatever we choose almost invariably has to last a long time.
