Traditionally the center of the home, the kitchen is key to successful living. Decorator Annie Sloan, one of the world's leading experts on color and interior painting, has produced a range of stunning professional schemes to give the most popular room of the home an entirely new look with a minimum of effort and little expense. Using her unique expertise, she shows how to decorate every kitchen area - walls, cupboards, and surfaces - providing clear instructions and step-by-step color photography. Projects range from an exuberant Mexican-style blue-and-yellow color-washed kitchen to revamping a battered family table and chairs as Swedish-style lime-washed dining furniture. Annie Sloan's Painted Kitchen also reveals simple afternoon makeovers and ingenious finishing touches, such as painting cupboard knobs or the inside of kitchen drawers in a contrast color to the outside for a fun, fashionable finish. All the projects are suitable for beginners and many feature style variations for the more adventurous.

Decorative Designs : Over 100 Ideas for Painted Interiors, Furniture, and Decorated Objects Total Hits - 411  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (3)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
"In this sumptuous paperback volume, Graham Rust, the accomplished painter and muralist, showcases his distinctive vision with one hundred decorative designs for every room in the house, including objects large and small, from cupboards and firescreens to delicate miniature boxes, as well as grand mural schemes for whole rooms, executed on panels and walls. The result is both an enchanting world of exotic and colorful interiors and a practical sourcebook of ideas for amateur and professional decorators alike. Some items, such as stationery, bookplates and monograms, are suitable for everyday personal use, while a few are frankly whimsical, such as the chinoiserie dog kennel or the cocktail tray with a design of jewel-like frogs. In his previous acclaimed book on mural painting, The Painted House, Rust fulfilled his dream project of muraling an entire mansion, room by room. In Decorative Designs, he expands his vision, presenting ideas with practical application for an entire range of objects that can personalize any home, large or small. Lavishly illustrated in color throughout with original sketches alongside finished works, Decorative Designs offers a breathtaking vista of creative ideas from one of the world's leading decorative artists. A must for interior designers and decorative painters, it cannot fail to inspire anyone who dreams of creating a uniquely beautiful home."
