In this sumptuous new book, the Grand Illusions team have once again captured the spirit of change, updating the romance and ease of country style in a glorious fusion of country and contemporary ‹ a look that is charming without being precious, modern but not cold. In their introduction, The New Restraint, Ronald and Roberts explain the essence of this unfussy new approach. Then five idea-filled sections reflect the new focus of home life today ‹ Place at Table (the country kitchen, table settings, new ways with flowers); New Color (paint techniques and floor treatments, earth tones and pastels for walls and fabrics); Sleep and Dreams (beds, bedding, and baths, candles and oils); Seasonal Spirit (light-harnessing window treatments, natural materials and accessories); and Through the Picket Fence (garden rooms and outdoor seating). Combining strikingly photographed interiors, sensible solutions, and dazzling ideas, this third book from Grand Illusions is for all home decorators looking for both comfort and elegance. The authors¹ previous books were Grand Illusions and Grand Illusions New Decorating.From Library Journal:
A streamlined, casual country style is shown in beautiful color photographs in these two books. Ronald and Roberts (Grand Illusions New Decorating) show how to create a relaxed country style with simple home decorating projects for every room of the house including the garden. Norval-Kruger divides this casual look at country into themes, such as rustic, romantic, and nautical, and shows suggested color schemes, furniture, and decorative accessories for each of the themed looks in every room of the house, as well as a resource list. Both are recommended for large interior design collections.
