Comments: Great color pictures, current styles, some instructions
I am a professional home-dec seamstress and use this book for client reference. The vivid pictures are of fully, beautifully decorated rooms in various styles. Many are easy to recreate. However, for those needing detailed instructions, you would need to find a pattern to recreate some of what you see in the book (like the valance on the cover). Good hints on choosing style, fabric, and on measuring.
