Today, virtually any interior design that can be imagined can be achieved. The vast range of possibilities can be as daunting as it is exciting, for to create a truly individual room you must define your own style and understand the process required to realize it.

Whether you do it yourself or work with a designer, this book helps take the first step in the creation of interiors that reflect your own individual tastes. Starting with the fundamentals of developing an overall plan, separate chapters describe the basic options and offer detailed and practical advice on flooring, walls and ceilings, fixtures and fittings, lighting, colour, furniture, windows, fabrics and accessories; also when and how to hire a professional designer or architect. 190 colour photographs provide a resource of decorating styles, ranging from the minimalist to the lavishly ornate and from the refined to the whimsical.

Coauthored by two experts in the field (see, for instance, In the Romantic Style: Creating Intimacy, LJ 11/15/90), this enjoyable book helps do-it-yourself decorators define their own style and take steps toward attaining it. The authors cover the treatment of floors, walls, ceilings, hardware, lighting, color, furniture arrangement, and windows, among other topics. Excellent color photographs enhance this text. Classical and modern styles of decorating are addressed but not country, which is covered in such books as Miranda Innes's The Country Home Book (LJ 2/15/90) and Judith Miller and Martin Miller's International Country (LJ 2/15/90). Recommended for public libraries.
