Gilliatt has updated her inspirational and practical guide on home design ( LJ 1/85) to reflect current trends. While some new photographs replace those decorating schemes now considered less fashionable, the text remains virtually unchanged. Included are new chapters on children's rooms, studies, and home work places. Deleted from this edition are the room sketches with suggestions of fabrics, textures, and finishing touches. Written for the nonprofessional, the book gives much sound advice on essentials as well as decorating accessories. Diverse examples are offered for adding and creating style in every room of a home or apartment, with detailed discussions of storage systems, suitable surfaces, work triangles, equipment selection, wall and window treatments, flooring, heating, and lighting. For all public libraries where the previous edition is not owned.
