Ethan Allens New American Style: Stage-by-Stage Decorating for Your Home by Ethan Allen

InEthan Allens New American Style, Vivia Chen and the design staff at Ethan Allen offer a much-needed alternative vision to the intimidating, otherworldly decorating gurus: a new American home thats completely accessible and affordable without sacrificing flair or personality. The core of this vision is something thats all too often missing from decorating advice: a practical, down-to-earth approach that recognizes your time and budget constraints, and that your desire for style shouldnt demand an all-or-nothing commitment of your resources. So Ethan Allen suggests a real-world approach to the real-life challenge of decorating your home: Be realistic. Determine your priorities, set a budget, establish a schedule. Recognize that your home will evolve over time, as you and your family will. Admit that every choice isnt necessarily the final one and so neednt be unduly labored over. Accept that you will not have achieved your ideal home by the time your in-laws arrive for dinner on Friday night. Whether that ideal home is a rustic seaside cottage, a rambling wood-frame Victorian, or a stark urban loft,Ethan Allens New American Stylewill help you get there-not by dictating your choices, but by helping you realize your personal vision. Beginning with the foyer and examining every room of the house, from the living and dining rooms back to the kitchen, upstairs to the bedrooms, and on to the home office, the bathroom, and even to an outdoor room, this book tackles every space you might need to fill. At the same time,Ethan Allens New American Styleis a cross section of just that: new American style. Whether that style is bohemian eclectic, traditional colonial, or modern minimalism, its represented here-and not as a set of impractical, rigid mandates, but as suggestions, building blocks onto which youll add your own taste. With this sensible approach, you will end up with your dream home. And youll avoid the innumerable nightmares, from financial to emotional, that can paralyze you. Most important, youll have fun. And isnt that what decorating should be about
