 About the Book 

A room in your home may seem not quite right. Do you change the whole decor with a project that involves considerable time and expense? Or is there a small but elegant alteration that you can make to give the room a new look, a lift? Elizabeth GaynorMoreA room in your home may seem not quite right. Do you change the whole decor with a project that involves considerable time and expense? Or is there a small but elegant alteration that you can make to give the room a new look, a lift? Elizabeth Gaynor and Kari Haavisto have tapped the minds of designers, architects, stylists, art directors, and others with a sophisticated eye for successful decorating to give insights on infusing new life to existing design elements with small but substantive transformations.Lets face it: We all come with baggage. Very few of us can afford to throw away all our belongings and wipe our decorative slates clean. Rather, we need good ideas to help us use what we have. Stylish Solutions is a book of such ideas. The homes included are clearly lived in, and the solutions that work here can be made to fit every home, large or small. Specific problems--such as where to place a sofa, how to arrange objects on a coffee table, and what to do to make the most of your mantel or bookshelves--yield a host of conceptual solutions that can be applied to any situation.Take a classic Biedermeier sofa, for example, then freshen it by pairing it with a modern elliptical table. Drape fabric over a pressed-wood table for a quick, smart sideboard. Youll soon appreciate how various decorative elements come together to add drama to a room and learn to employ these simple ideas to improve the spaces in which you live. Stylish Solutions presents hundreds of easy decorating ideas for cupboards, countertops, coffee tables, and more--ideas that help make big changes with little effort.
