In one imaginative and beautifully presented volume, the genius of House Beautiful unfolds--in a "class" that teaches the eye to see and understand d#65533;cor in an inspiring new way.

Take a class with House Beautiful's teachers! All the design know-how anyone needs to decorate a new home or redo an old house is right in this one-stop, all-encompassing, lushly photographed, and brilliantly conceived volume. Everything from wonderful home basics and working with space to the art of color and perfect patterns to the absolute essentials for floors, windows, walls, and lighting is here. In addition to presenting fundamental decorating principles, this unequalled reference looks at different styles, such as Country, Modern, and Seaside; suggests ways of adding drama to a space or period grandeur; and leads you on an inspirational idea-filled walk through the house, analyzing options for every room. Eye-opening pictures of beautiful interiors reveal how to fill even the smallest bedroom with simple comfort, showcase architectural features, make the best use of soft furnishings, and much, much more. Each page brims with bright ideas for every nook and cranny.
