For dazzling decorating, fabric can play a starring role in every roomin the house. It can add immediate comfort and warmth to a pillow, cheer to a plain window, or drama to a tailored lampshade. In anything-but-technical text, Fabric explores the almost endless ways textiles can personalize a decorating scheme. Bold colors and serene neutrals, homey tickings and stripes, funky florals and luxurious textures are the tools; swagging a gauzy no-sew curtain for an urbane impression, slipcovering dining room chairs for a summer look, or layering on a virtual crazy quilt of vintage textiles for a cottage makeover can be the results.Throughout, you'll find how-to's and do-it-yourself projects, complete with shopping lists and "Fabric Workshops" that offer glimpses into the studios and homes of artists and decorators who have put fabric to use in new and unusual ways. And more than 100 color photographs illustrate all the imaginative ways fabric can give your home the Mary Engelbreit look. This is the fifth book in a series of Home Companion magazine books. Others are: Paint, Plates, Collections, and Leading the Artful Lifeshow more
