Influential Styles demonstrates how some of the world's most talented designers create gorgeous interiors that are historically influenced, yet fresh and relevant as ever.
Covering the main design influences from medieval times to today, each chapter begins with an introduction to each style, accompanied by an overview of the architectural, furnishing, and decorative details that typified the interiors of that period--for example, mouldings and columns, colours and furniture shapes, porcelain and china. Photos of real homes display these styles in a modern setting, such as Shaker simplicity and practicality; vibrant colours and fabrics that echo Victoriana; and white walls, chrome, and art deco brilliant colours. This invaluable reference tool provides creative inspiration for anyone who wants to capture the art, architecture, and visual drama of a period style in any room of their own home.Publishing Details
