Room Rescues: Decorating Solutions for Awkward Spaces by Jane Burdon
Are all the rooms in your home light-filled spaces with high ceilings and fantastic architectural details? Do they resemble the large, regularly shaped rooms portrayed in countless aspirational books and magazines on home interiors? If so, Room Rescues is not for you. But if, like many of us, you have at least one room that s too dark, small or narrow, for instance, or whose style seems bland or dated, this book is the answer to your dreams. Each chapter tackles a different type of challenge in the same practical way. A scene-setting review of the problem is followed by a set of Golden Rules about decorating choices and use of space. The fully illustrated Solutions pages show numerous creative decorating solutions as they appear in real homes. Decorating Palettes for each chapter offer ideas for colours, patterns and styles that will work well in your space. Finally, since problems often come in twos or threes, a Combinations section shows you how to mix and match solutions when dealing with a room that has more than one trouble spot.
