The aim of this decorating guide is to help readers restyle their homes in a wide variety of country designs. The book provides advice on how to create a complete look - including soft furnishings, furniture and creative ideas - and how to display collections and restore structural features. The commissioned photography, and inventive artwork, gives creative ideas first for choosing a look that is right for your home and then carrying - from the first steps in restoration through to a range of decorative finishes - an individual result that suits the country today. These include painting a floor design, reverse stencilling and how to achieve a traditional aged look. All are shown in step-by-step photo sequences. A furniture chapter tells you how to recognize traditional construction techniques as well as how to use the furniture stylishly; the country table, the country seat, dresser cupboards and shelving. Finally, a chapter entitled "Treasure Troves" gives advice on the display of collections: jugs, plates, basketry and pictures as well as decorative techniques for displaying fresh flowers.
