From Baroque to Bauhaus : Inspiration for Today's InteriorsBook - 2003
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, moldings and columns, colors and furniture shapes, porcelain and china. Next, scores of dazzling photos of real homes display these styles in a modern setting, such as the simplicity and practicality that's a throwback to Shaker; vibrant colors and fabrics that echo Victoriana; and white walls, chrome, and dashes of color that scream art deco. This invaluable reference tool provides a wealth of 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.
