The Decoration of Houses (Classical America Series in Art and Architecture)Total Hits - 247  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
The wave of recent attention to Edith Wharton as an arbiter of taste and correct usage in the making of domestic interior rooms and to Ogden Codman, Jr., as a revivalist architect of the first rank has made their reputations in those fields seem more secure than ever. Yet the original text of The Decoration of Houses continues without revision as an authentic classic; it can be argued that this book is the most important of its kind ever published. Its carefully reasoned chapters on such aspects of house interiors as fireplaces, ceilings and floors, halls and stairs, are of greatest value to professionals and serious amateurs concerned with interiors. This revised edition of "Wharton-Codman" includes several new features appended to the original text which indicate that the ideals of the authors have a lively continuing tradition - not only in private homes but in important new public interiors. In his introduction, Henry Hope Reed assays the current importance of The Decoration of Houses. And in a revealing and useful adaptation of a classroom lecture, the architect Alvin Holm carefully advises students (and others who may use this book) as to the best employment of The Decoration of Houses as a textbook.

Transform ordinary furniture and everyday objects with strikingly original designs from one of our most exciting and innovative designers. Resonant with brilliant color, the designs are all based on simple motifs - stripes, circles, leaves, and tiger stripes - which can be used to create bold, graphic effects as well as more ornate designs. With the use of templates and step-by-step instructions, Cressida Bell clearly shows how to transfer these to a variety of plain surfaces using only the most basic materials. Projects should appeal to both the homemaker and artist, and include a deck chair with tiger stripes, a dotty lampshade and base, checkered tabletop and jewelry box, decorative plates, and a host of other ideas.

Cressida's sources of inspiration are rich and varied, from her Bloomsbury anscestors to Mediterranean ceramics, architectural motifs and mosaics, to ancient fabrics and costumes. All these, plus handpainted decorations on every page, provide a treasury of innovative designs and source material to inspire you to create your own painted designs.

The Emotional House: How Redesigning Your Home Can Change Your Life Total Hits - 554  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (12)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Most of us spend more time in our homes than any other place. For better or worse, this highly personal space has a powerful influence over the way we feel about our lives. Based on the program used by the authors in their successful home consulting practice, this book teaches readers to use psychological and design principles to transform their houses into nurturing and supportive living.

The exercises in the book encourage readers to list the activities they engage in, room by room, in their homes. Readers learn how to analyze each room's size, layout, and decor and how to read their psychological and physiological reactions to the various spaces. Then the book offers readers a step-by-step process they can use to figure out what they and their living companions-family members, roommates, and even pets-want out of each room. Based on these discoveries, the book proposes cleaning, organizing, and decorating ideas guaranteed to make each room function better.

"This book unlocks the door on home design, giving you keys to creating a home that lifts your spirits and agrees with your lifestyle." -Candice Olson,one of North America's top designers and host of Divine Design on HGTV
