Decorating Easy Summary

Decorating Easy: Create a Simple, Comfortable Home with Pure Style by Jane Cumberbatch

In "Decorating Easy", Jane Cumberbatch presents her blueprint for a comfortable, easy-living, yet always stylish home that is practical and simple to maintain. Her approach to homemaking is about decorating simply, paring down and making the most of your space, without spending a fortune. The book details how to put an entire room together, from the basic architectural structure and use of space, through the furniture and fittings, down to the small but essential decorative finishes. The main body of the book, "Decorating Secrets", has complete schemes for every room in the house from the entrance to the garden. Each of the 60 schemes is illustrated with colour photographs taken in real homes and has detailed recipe-style instructions. Essential information is given on preparation work and other practical aspects of DIY that need to be considered, including: working up designs and sketches, putting together colour and pattern, working to a budget and the core decorators' tools needed to get the job done. There are features on the key areas that transform a room, from adequate storage in the kitchen to calming colour in the bedroom. A section with Twenty Things to Make and Do contains full instructions for a range of projects for stylish finishing touches, including decorative painting ideas, soft furnishings and home accessories to give a home its heart.
