101 Ideas for Downstairs is packed with decorating, furnishing, flooring and lighting ideas for living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens. These most public rooms in the house deserve the best attention not least of all because they are often the most expensive to decorate. The book is divided into three key sections, kitchens, dining rooms and living rooms, and each is then subdivided into key styles. Each room is illustrated with a beautifully shot full-colour photograph and in-depth advice on how to create the look at home. There are details on everything from choosing colour and mixing patterns to being creative with lighting and finishing touches. The book includes a suppliers directory. As well as being an invaluable source book, 101 Home Ideas for Downstairs will help the home decorator build confidence and the ability to interpret looks and styles to create original decorating schemes for any room.
