This portable, fully illustrated encyclopedia of decorating is destined to become an instant classic.

Decorating a house or apartment should be a fun and creative project, but almost everyone finds the number of decisions to make overwhelming. Cut pile or loop pile carpet? Trace lighting or wall sconces? Chintz, velvet, or linen for the upholstery? There are so many choices to consider and questions that are difficult to answer.

The Pocket Decorator is the solution: a unique visual primer of interior design that is small enough to slip into your pocket. Uniquely complete and portable, this accessible volume includes everything from big-picture topics like architectural styles throughout the ages to nitty-gritty details such as curtain treatments. With chapters on Architectural Elements, Decorative Motifs, Fabrics, Floor Treatments, Furniture, Hardware, Lighting, Trimmings, Upholstery, Walls, and Windows, the book also features sidebars on such topics as standard bed sizes, how to buy a lampshade, how to decorate in the country style, and more. It's like having your own personal decorator in your pocket wherever you go.

Endlessly useful, practical in its organization, and portable in size, with elegant illustrations throughout, The Pocket Decorator will find a place in every home decorator's library.
