Many people approach home decorating with trepidation, worried about the time and expense it may consume. Maggie Colvin takes a simple and time-saving approach and shows you how to create stylish accessories and stunning decorative effects in your home, with a minimum of effort and cost. This book is packed with over 40 decorating ideas that are grouped in chapters indicating the time required for each project. Choose to make a lampshade from photocopied sheet music in around an hour or spend a weekend on a complete bathroom makeover. A variety of techniques -- paint finishes, trompe l'oeil, stencilling and decoupage -- are clearly explained, accompanied by colour photographs and illustrations. Tips on flower arranging and ideas for door and window treatments, as well as examples of fool-proof colour schemes that will enhance any room, are also included. Whatever your level of experience, this book will bring out the home decorator in you. Maggie Colvin combines her interior design knowledge and experience of tried-and-tested techniques with her unique sense of style. With special emphasis on decorating shortcuts, she provides a guide to materials and equipment, advice on using colour, and shows you how to transform doors, windows, cupboards or even a room quickly, dramatically and inexpensively.
