Featuring interiors by today's top designers, The Power of Pattern shows how wallpaper and fabric designs can be used to elevate and personalize every room. Both a beautiful interiors book and a resource guide, it is the only patterns book on the market to feature such a wide range of work and diversity of styles.
Best-selling interiors author Susanna Salk turns her focus to patterns, celebrating their versatility and creative possibilities, from a dash of colorful pattern in the entryway to the whimsy of a uniquely upholstered chair in the dining room or a luxuriously textured bedroom curtain. A practical primer on the many motifs available--Nature, Animal, Floral, Ikat, Chinoiserie, Stripes, and Toile are some of the chapters--this volume presents myriad versions of each, with inspiring examples of how to decorate with them. Salk also provides tips on how to use pattern in a particular space--for example, stripes create the illusion of a bigger room, and floral patterns look modern and bold (not fussy) when used on a big scale in bright colors.
Presenting rooms by design stars such as Alessandra Branca, Bunny Williams, John Derian, and India Hicks, among others, The Power of Pattern
teaches you how to mix and match to make your house look effortlessly decorated. And Salk's encouraging design tips give you inspirational ideas and practical tips, opening up a world of decorating creativity.
