House Beautiful Paint Total Hits - 493  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (0)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
No decorating tool has come into its own in recent years more strongly than paint. Always the simplest, least expensive way to change the look of a room -- today, thanks to the availability of thousands of colors and finishes, painting is one of the most complex as well, bringing color, texture, and pattern to every kind of surface.

House Beautiful Paint, a new volume from the editors of House Beautiful magazine in their Great Style series, explores all the decorating possibilities that paint offers. More than 120 color photographs illustrate the wonderful ways in which it can be used to strike a mood, manipulate space, fool the eye, surprise and delight, transforming walls, floors, ceilings, furniture -- even the smallest accessories. Advice from decorators and homeowners alike serves as a guide to choosing tones and finishes, incorporating techniques such as sponging, ragging, stenciling, and trompe l'oeil, and using paint as a backdrop for artwork or to create the effect of carpeting or wallpaper. An illustrated glossary explains the most commonly used paint terms to take the mystery out of this rich, and readily accessible, design resource.
