Additional Description:

Paint can transform a room by striking a mood, manipulating space, fooling the eye, and re-dressing walls, floors, and ceilings. More than 120 color photographs, with practical advice from decorators and home owners, illustrate the wonderful ways this almost-magical change happens. Whether you're selecting tones and finishes; incorporating techniques such as sponging, ragging, and stenciling; or using paint as a backdrop for artwork, you'll find hundreds of ideas to refresh and revitalize. Warm up a room with the power of color: any shade of red is a romantic choice for a dining room. A trellis ribbon pattern, plus sky-blue walls and picket-fence-white wainscoting, set a garden mood in a bright, airy sunroom. Think of paint as "makeup" for furniture, to cover up blemishes and uneven surfaces or take the look of more expensive woods, Play visual tricks by mimicking architectural surfaces that aren't really there -- like a marbled floor or trompe l'oeil cornice. You will paint your home beautiful
