Hallways, Corridors, and Staircases: Developing the Decorative & Practical Potential of Every Part oTotal Hits - 1148  |  Hits Today - 1Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
Hallways, Corridors, and Staircases Houses and apartments have traditionally been seen as a series of rooms-but, when it comes to interior design, there is a great deal more to be considered. For example, the entrance hall is the introduction to everything that follows, making it crucial in setting the scene. Corridors and landings may have been built to give access to the main spaces, but they offer wonderful opportunities for storage and display. The stairs, too, are important since they are the single element that holds a house together, floor by floor. Hallways, Corridors, and Staircases is packed with exciting and inspirational ideas about how to develop the potential of these often unconsidered spaces. Leading interiors writer Leslie Geddes-Brown shares her knowledge and experience in the first book to explore in depth this absorbing subject.

BookList - Barbara Jacobs
Now that painted furniture has been recognized and accepted as a suitable do-it-yourself medium, the transfer of many of those techniques--including sponging and marbling--to fabrics is now popular. English designer Ball, ably assisted by well-known American crafter Janitch, doesn't segment her lessons into explanation and then application via projects. Instead, she approaches the methods first with a design eye, exhorting readers to use their visual sense to discover patterns and motifs around them. Of course, extensive notes about color, materials, equipment, and preparation follow. Over 15 projects (e.g., a tartan desk set, roller blinds, and a petal lamp shade) are then inserted into the 10 techniques, with the bonus of additional color photographs and a few templates showcasing the work of contemporary fabric artists. Not necessarily for the beginning painter but a good guide for the practiced dabbler.

Love the look of mid-century, modern, retro design, but don't feel like dropping two weeks' pay on an Eames chair? In Handmade Modern, Todd Oldham shares his passion for mid-century modern homes with over 52 do-it-yourself projects for anyone who loves crafts and longs to add character to every corner of his or her home.

Todd Oldham has received accolades during an impressive career bringing couture fashion and elegant design to a more inclusive and broader audience, first in MTV's "House of Style", and today though his line of housewares and school supplies for Target, and his line of home furnishings for La-Z-Boy. In Handmade Modern he offers cutting-edge makeover plans for the office, kitchen, living room, bedroom, and closet, all designed to be both fresh and enormously practical. In this beautifully designed full-color book, Todd tackles each room in the house, starting with a beauty shot of each room, and then breaking the room down into its components, each one a do-it-yourself project. In the living room, for example, he takes you through projects with a difficulty range of 1 through 5:

  • a space-saving freestanding bookshelf (5)
  • matching end tables (4)
  • reupholstered pillows (2)
  • Lucite picture frames (2)

Each project is charted through step-by-step photos and instructions until the fabulously mod end.

Handmade Modern promises to revolutionize the way the reader looks at his or her own home and capacity to beautify a space. Chic, accessible, and fun, this is the achievable new look of modern home design.
