You don't have to revamp everything to revive your home; little things actually do make a big difference. Approaching your space with a fresh eye can lead to simple changes that miraculously create a whole new look overnight.
Whatever the scope of your project--small space or large, minor update or major overhaul-- House Beautiful can help. The 500 professional-quality ideas found in this comprehensive, lavishly illustrated book will help clarify your decorating vision and make the task ahead seem wonderfully manageable...even enjoyable! The guide is organized by basic design elements--Balance, Simplicity, Impact, Function, Details, and Color--that provide the foundation for any decorating project and an easy-to-understand roadmap to re-dos. Apply them to any aspect of a room, from the surfaces and furnishings to the soft touches and accents. A final chapter is devoted to Quick Fixes for when it's absolutely necessary to get the work done now. Hundreds of breathtaking photos showcase it all.
Fresh, bright, and accessible, this book is filled with insider tips from today's top designers and bursting with real advice for real people.
