It's easy, it's creative, and it gives your home a new look in no time at all! Whether you're adding soft colorwashes or cool stripes, trompe l'oeil or fantastic faux finishes, paint brings individual style to any room. But don't even pick up a brush before looking at these fabulous ideas, techniques, and even recipes for achieving professional results on every conceivable surface. Compiled by a interior designer, this covers-it-all guide tells you how to buy, prepare, mix, and apply all kinds of paint, and fresh ways to brighten the house inside and out. A living room is elegant dressed in warm ivory glaze; a kitchen sparkles with cobalt blue walls; a child's bedroom charms with a vivid mural of trees, foliage and birds. 20 projects (including a sensuous stone-blocked bathroom and a gold bedroom with a classic diamond design) showcase a dazzling array of colors, patterns, and textures. Every image is sumptuous, every concept spectacular.
