She shows you how to easily mix and match colors, blend decorating styles, and highlight favorite family pieces through a simple planning process that takes you from basic to beautiful in a matter of minutes. Each chapter is devoted to a season -- spring, summer, harvest, and holiday -- filled with ideas, recipes and projects for fun with fabric, surface design, home decor, woodpainting and stenciling. Step-by-step how-tos, illustrations, full-size patterns, along with a complete guide to materials and sources, provide a hands-on guide to creating it yourself, Lynette has also included a special section of "swatches to go" -- coordinating her fabric and color chips with each season that blend perfectly to transition you through the year in style.
