There is no style so coveted in interior decoration as authentic period style, and there is no name so identified with period style decorating as Judith Miller. This beautifully illustrated book provides detailed instructions on how to create authentic period looks using curtains, draperies, and soft furnishings. Included are photographs of a wide range of period rooms with step-by-step sewing instructions for 14 projects and inspiration for hundreds more.
From tapestry cushions to four-poster bed hangings, from swagged and tailed window coverings to wing chair covers--every aspect of period draperies and soft furnishing is covered, including photographs of swatches of classic fabrics still available today and backed up by a directory of international suppliers of these period-style fabrics. With hundreds of period ideas shown in more than 450 full-color photographs and step-by-step diagrams, Judith Miller's Guide to Period-Style Curtains and Soft Furnishings is the essential guide for home and professional decorators alike.
"[Judith Miller's] latest book is full of elegant and simple period rooms with stunning window treatments and a trove of other decorating ideas."--Better Homes and Garden's Window & Wall Ideas --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
