Modern Upholstering Methods Total Hits - 220  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
This book is a republication of what appears to be "modern" methods of the 1950s. By the data, illustrations, tools and materials described in this book I conclude that the republication was not updated to the methods of the 1990s. For example, data quoted is from 1957 through 1960, the term "vinyl" is not used and the material is not described, and all tacking is literally done with tacks and not staples. If you are looking for a book to understand the methods of the past, then this is it. But don't expect to learn about truly modern methods and materials.

In Modern Vintage Style, Emily Chalmers - interiors stylist and owner of hip boutique Caravan - shows how using vintage items in a contemporary context can introduce humour, flair and personality to a home.

In the first section of the book, Inspirations, Emily offers up imaginative and varied examples of furniture, lighting, textiles, decorating and collections & display. In the second section, Style, she shows you exactly how to pull the look together, applying her decorating philosophy so you can cook & eat, live, sleep and bathe in tune with Modern Vintage Style.

Money-Wise Makeovers: Modest Remodels and Affordable Room Redos Total Hits - 1864  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (12)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Amid a mood of collective belt-tightening, instead of moving out or moving up, Americans today are staying home and staying put. But just because they're keeping the homes they have, doesn't mean they have to compromise the way they live. In fact, now that new home construction is down, suppliers, contractors and craftspeople are more available and more amenable to negotiating their rates-even for small projects-than ever before. So, if you want to upgrade your home and improve its value without spending a lot, now is the perfect time to do so.

Clearly organized room-by-room, including outdoor spaces, and filled with evocative before and after photos, the book shows readers how they can change the spirit of a room at various budgets, either with DIY decorative changes or modest remodeling efforts that transform their spaces for contemporary lifestyle needs.

This sequel to last year's popular title Staged to Sell (or Keep) will contain a selection of DIY project ideas with how-tos in each chapter, as well as sidebars including practical tips on space-saving ideas and storage solutions. Appendices will include a section on informative tips on Choosing a Contractor and advice on Creating a Punch List and Establishing a Budget.

Mood Indigo: Decorating with Rich, Dark Colors Total Hits - 250  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (6)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
These two books demonstrate the effective use of bold, dark, and vibrant color in interiors. Lee, interiors editor of the Times magazine of London, successfully shows that "dark colors don't have to be overpowering or somber they can be inviting and comforting." Although she begins with an overview of how light, texture, and tone can affect dark colors, most of her book is a gallery of photographs grouped by different colors and showing the use of each in a variety of interior design styles. The subtitle of Ferer and Palazzo's book is misleading. Rather than providing practical advice for modern decorating, the authors present bold, colorful, and eclectic examples of contemporary interior design by visiting the homes of celebrities and designers such as Bette Midler, Donna Karan, and Bill Blass. Purchase Mood Indigo for large interior design collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
