ABOUT THE BOOK: No decorating element so alters the ambience of a room like beautiful, luxurious fabric. Elegantly framing a window, gracefully skirting a table – even disguising a less than perfect sofa – carefully selected fabrics lend style and sophistication to any design scheme, whether your taste runs from traditional Americana to inviting English country.
This is a comprehensive workbook that demonstrates how to make every room in your home come alive with fabrics. The interior designers present dozens of creatively decorated rooms. Chapters on choosing the right color, where and how to select fabrics, plus professional tips help you to make the difference between do-it-yourself and fabulous. Most important the comprehensive instructions, illustrated with more than 500 line drawings and diagrams, ensure that anyone with fundamental sewing skills can achieve showroom precise results.
From simple yet elegant throw pillows and sunny window treatments to dramatic table-skirts to a wide range of accessories for the bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen – even special touches for kids’ rooms and vacation homes – DECORATING WITH FABRIC offers hundreds of inspiring ideas.
