Featuring homey wall treatments and rustic accessories that recall a simpler time, the informal charm of country decorating brings a welcoming, cozy feeling to any home. By offering up practical decorating advice in an inviting, easy-to-read format, Elements of Home Design: Country Decorating gives you all the inspiration you need to implement this popular, personalized design in your own home. ~~ After an overview of the basics of design -- that is, knowing your space, establishing goals, and creating mood -- Wills takes you through the different elements of country style, working from the outside in. Different country house styles are discussed, from Victorian to Colonial, followed by a look at how to complement the exterior of your home by bringing out the beauty and character of your interior walls with decorative painting flourishes. She makes playing up such existing features as flooring, trims, and windows easy with her Smart Steps approach, which help you identify different elements to look for and which ones to emphasize. Perhaps the most popular aspects of country decorating are collecting and displaying accessories. Wills examines how to use your country treasures to enhance your home decor by focusing on color, texture, pattern, and other design elements. Finally, you'll be treated to a virtual tour of a country-style home, to give you room-by-room inspiration. ~~ Decorating in the country style is a uniquely rewarding process because it allows so much freedom of choice. By offering up practical decorating advice in an inviting and easy-to-understand format, and by showing many successful country-style flourishes in beautiful full-color photographs, Elements of Home Design: Country Decorating demonstrates the joys of exploring this style, laying the groundwork for your next home decorating project.
