A small touch here, a new detail there: you don't need an entire room makeover to bring decorating magic into your home! Just a few key features quickly and easily transform any space, anywhere. The secret formula is to follow your own instincts, embrace natural materials, and aim for harmony and quality. Perhaps add some "contradictions" too, such as Shaker simplicity with organized clutter; and the old with the new. The most soulless bedroom springs to life with a treasured quilt, while clinical, cold kitchens warm up with a color change and a selection of gleaming copper pans. Adorn hard surfaces like walls, floors, ceilings, and furniture with patterns; make fabrics, from linen towels to antique sheets, an integral part of a design scheme; group objects into still lifes; and make your garden a true extension of your home. With inspirational pictures and loads of practical advice.
