Details bring a room to life--and House Beautiful shows how to make every room special by accentuating exquisite finishing touches.

Packaged in the same appealing format as House Beautiful The Apartment Book , this gorgeous compendium showcases the magazine's favorite looks and explains exactly why they work. Each chapter covers a different room, focusing on such eye-catching features as colorful crockery on open kitchen shelves, elaborate glass chandeliers shimmering with light in the dining room, scenic wall treatments, and crystal beads sparkling on pillows. From glamorous to minimalist, there are beautiful examples for every taste, and each chapter has an introduction, a gallery of photos, tips, and three sidebars focusing on popular decorating styles. Quotes from top designers appear throughout, providing their special, professional insight.

This is a nice little book with tons of ideas for every room in the house. The only problem is that it is, well, small, therefore the pictures are too small. It is a great pity, because it detracts from its quality.

Inspiring beautiful pictures will show you how colours, textures & furniture can be combined to give your home that 'finished' look. Lots of ideas to be obtained from the photos & written text. A fabulous book.
