This guide explores a very particular decorating niche--how to improve and beautify foyers, stairs, and upper landing areas. A wide range of decors are featured--from opulent and sophisticated designs to more casual country-style and traditional interiors--with an abundance of handsome photographs showing various ways to incorporate aspects of color. Application methods are illustrated in a step-by-step format, and explanations of technical methods are clear and concise. The ambitious home decorator will be able to achieve decorative effects with handmade, unique stencils, with wallpapers combined with unusual painted borders or friezes, and with dramatic patterned finishes for floors. A useful sourcebook with appealing ideas. Alice Joyce
