Classic refers to timeless interior design -- it might well be considered the little black dress for the home. Beyond fashion, pure and unfussy, it is a style that presents the image of everlasting beauty. One of the great strengths of the classic style is that its moods may vary, depending upon who employs it. In this lavishly illustrated and beautifully written book, design authority Suzanne Trocme shows a range of ways to create the classic style for a new century. She begins with rooms that exemplify different classic themes: order, elegance, comfort, restraint, and drama. She then goes on to explain the role of color, texture, scale, and proportion in defining classic interior spaces and discusses how to incorporate every design element -- from floor materials to soft furnishings, from furniture to artworks. A chapter called qFunctionq examines how this style can be integrated into all kinds of living spaces, including kitchens, bathrooms, and studies. The 250 gorgeous and informative photographs taken by Ken Hayden present myriad examples of contemporary interiors designed in this timeless style. Concluding the book is a useful resources section that lists suppliers of decorating materials, furniture, and decorative objects, as well as interior designers who work in the classic style. -- An international array of fantastic yet accessible interiors, all newly photographed for this book -- A hard-working book that teaches readers how to incorporate the elements of classic style -- The author is a respected authority on contemporary interior design-- An international array of fantastic yet accessible interiors, all newly photographed for this book -- A hard-working book that teaches readers how to incorporate the elements of classic style -- The author is a respected authority on ...
