THE DECORATED HOME features all the inspiration and instruction home decorators need to transform the look of every room. More than 27 step-by-step painting techniques illustrate a range of imaginative effects for use on walls, moldings, doors, floors, furniture, and even curtains and accessories. The first chapter focuses primarily on decorating walls, with techniques for stamping, combing, freehand and graffitipatterns. Readers can then choose from a variety of special effects that give surfaces the appearance of leather, malachite, marble, lapis lazuli and more. This complete guide also features projects that put the finishing touches on a room, from stenciled tables and trays to weathered statues and planters. Large full-color beauty shots and detailed steps make every project easy to execute, and just for beginners, this book also includes a chapter on basic materials, painting techniques and surface preparation.
