We have never demanded so much from our homes. Not only must they satisfy the myriad practical needs of modern life, we also want them to express our tastes and personal style. Paint and fabrics do not simply cover and protect, they must evoke the right atmosphere, creating a feeling of relaxation or activity or comfort. In this book the author discusses the vital decisions that need to be made about space, light, colour, surfaces, fabrics and furniture, not just looking at the different materials and techniques but at the effects they create. She then applies these lessons to every area of the home, from hallways to bathrooms, and explains how to create a range of fresh and achievable interior styles. In the final chapter she offers clever ideas for revitalising rooms without the need for a complete redesign. Ann Grafton is the Creative Director of the Colefax Group which comprises some of the world's leading fabric companies.
