Just think of it as having your own private decorator on call 24/7. This 288-page book, an outstanding primer on every aspect of home decorating, is a new edition of a popular Sunset classic. The first section covers design and style basics such as color, pattern, and texture--and how modern trends affect these essential concepts. The second section moves into fundamental room elements like window treatments, flooring, and lighting, and how to plan the environment so all these elements work toward a cohesive style. The third section takes readers through every room of a house, from the entryway to the back door and everywhere in between. Here you'll find beautiful photographs that bring to life "great ideas" such as a home office that really works, bedrooms most kids only dream about, showroom-worthy great rooms, plus lots of ways to create storage just about anyplace you can imagine. Combine the hottest design trends and techniques with a comprehensive resource guide, and you're well on your way to the home you've always wanted.
