Innovative design ideas that will inspire and delight.

The home decorator, whether amateur or professional, must first resolve several challenges before beginning any project:

  • How can original features be saved or enhanced?
  • How can individuality be added?
  • Should the design be simple or ornate? Classic or modern?
  • How can colors be coordinated?
  • This unique sourcebook provides answers to these questions and countless others. Lavishly illustrated with more than 800 stunning color photographs, 1000 Home Ideas features innovative design solutions for:

  • Walls
  • Flooring
  • Steps and banisters
  • Doors and windows
  • Cupboards and shelving
  • With beautiful photos and engaging text, 1000 Home Ideas will appeal to the designer/interior decorator inside every home owner's heart. It also offers better value than an armful of magazines.

    Book News
    The clever premise of this design book is the themes that form the basis for each chapter, including shelves, floors, doors and windows, color and texture, and cooking and eating, among others. For each, interior design specialist Cliff offers a page of thoughts and suggestions on the theme then fills the rest of the chapter with many examples in scintillating photos taken by Sarramon in houses throughout Europe. The photos are presented in full-page plates or, more often, with many photos per page, and all without captions, so that the reader focuses entirely on the visual. The volume is oversized: 9.25x12". It is not indexed. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Je trouve que les images ne sont pas très pertinentes pour les citoyens de tous les jours et les idées ne sont pas très bonnes (comparativement à d'autres livres d'idées).
