Victory in the Valleys of Life by Charles Livingstone Allen

Take a fresh look at what you have at home, then rearrange and revamp it! Organized into the most popular decorating themes, the 1,001 tips here will lend new style to any room or garden. Try one or two ideas to provide a little pizzazz, or carry out several and completely change a setting. The charm of chintz, pewter, and roses is basic to any English country room. All the details from which youll choose will evoke misty mornings curled up under the covers or wind-swept evenings relaxing by the fire. Use your favorite art or travel books as a pedestal to showcase a lamp with flair. Turn a pitcher into a flower vase or transform a lace bed-spread into drapes and youre instantly transported to the Victorian age. Victorian decorating allows you to go a bit over the top while bringing elegance into your decor. Embellish plain shelves by stapling bands of wide ribbon to the edging, display a silver tea service on a lovely cutwork linen tablecloth, and embellish towels and pillowcases with lace trims, crochet, or embroidery work. Shift your perceptions of color, form, and function while seeking out the unique and unusual to create Avant-garde Style. Hanging horizontal stripes of wallpaper in related patterns and colors seems to widen a wall, while highly polished, bare floors and a few pieces of simple furniture evoke serenity. Travel to Tuscany right in your own garden. Edge a meandering path with lush flowers and statues to soften hard lines. Enhance the view from inside with window boxes overflowing with colorful blooms on the outside. Or liven up a nondescript fence by applying a vivid coat of paint that will draw attention to the plantings behind it. From Seaside Cottage to Asian Style, these decorating themes are easy to accomplish and look great without costing a fortune. Book jacket.
