About this title:

Synopsis: British interior designer Nina Campbell's signature style -- timeless elegance, with an emphasis on luxurious comfort -- has brought her acclaim and admirers from around the world. Now, in The Art of Decoration. Nina shares the design secrets that have made her one of England's leading decorators. Glorious full-color photographs capture an eclectic mix of interiors, from a dramatic New York penthouse to a classic English country home, from an elegant banker's retreat to a charming Queen Anne cottage.

Renowned for her use of fabrics, colors, and patterns, and for her refined finishing touches. Nina begins by describing her own approach to decorating. She offers seasoned advice on design basics, like developing a personal style, overcoming decorating challenges -- such as a lack of natural light, a limited budget, or an awkwardly shaped room -- and working with painters, architects, and contractors.

Next, Nina takes you on a guided tour of ten very individual homes she has designed in the United States and Europe, including her own London apartment. Outlining her strategy for each location, she demonstrates how professional decorators rely on simple tricks like displaying fresh flowers and colorful table or bed linens, moving furniture around for different looks, using a minimum of expensive fabric for a maximum effect. and hanging pictures in new ways to enliven and elevate any decorative scheme.

Full of insider's tips, practical advice. and brilliant design solutions. The Art of Decoration demystifies the process of decorating and will serve as an inspiration to anyone wishing to create a stylish living environment.

From Library Journal: Spender's good idea of publishing a book as an AIDS fundraiser resulted in 26 letters drawn by Hockney and 26 short pieces by a who's who of contemporary writers. Hockney's drawings are true to his style, yielding bright, cheery, surprising mini-artworks. The writers' poems, essays, etc., use the letters of the alphabet as inspiration. The book that results from Spender's idea and Hockney's drawings turns into a one-of-a-kind collection of short writings by such distinguished writers as Joyce Carol Oates, John Updike, and Susan Sontag. The bonus successful merging of the visual and the written will give some comfort to AIDS victims. Recommended for academic, hospital, museum, and public libraries.
