Whether your home is a house, apartment, or condominium, this book puts design tools at your fingertips so you can create beautiful, inspiring interiors in your home. The book explains how to develop a plan for creating a home environment that works for your lifestyle; one that truly reflects your personality and projects your individuality. Each chapter guides you through the process of putting the components of interior design together in a cohesive, unified manner by focusing on style development and color schemes rather than duplicating design trends. The chapter, Finding Your Style, provides examples of traditional, transitional, contemporary, and casual design themes, allowing you to zero in on what styles are better suited to your lifestyle. Photographs offer a wide range of stylish looks from traditional to contemporary designs inspiring you to create your own unique style. As you evaluate how the rooms in your home work in conjunction with the whole living environment, then colors, textures, and design themes take on new significance. Planning your interior scheme is truly fun, rewarding, and even therapeutic. The book features 200 color photos of living and dining rooms, bedrooms, breakfast nooks, and home offices. Tips for designing special spaces like home theaters, outdoor patios, and children's rooms are included along with a window treatment primer, notes on how to accessorize with antiques and collectibles, developing a color palette, and practical lighting basics.
