'... a fresh international selection of country and country-style interiors and, with the help of completely original and stunning photographs, builds a complete, practical guide to restoring and styling. For Miranda Innes, decorating is not simply a matter of painting (important though the inventive use of colour is), it is just as much about lighting, using fabric, choosing and placing furniture, and displaying collections. This book includes them all with a host of inventive ideas to inspire you on every page. Examples of all her favourite techniques were specially commissioned and executed, including colour techniques for walls, floor painting, decorating picture frames, and painting techniques for furniture. All are shown for you in photographic, step-by-step sequences.'
