    This is quite a beautiful book.. 224 pages of everything you need to soft furnish your home. There are 50 projects and each is shown with a step by step instruction guide and I have to say.. it is beautifully photographed. In fact it is probably the best photographed book I have seen. Curtains, Accessories and Shades are projects that are not only useful, but they are made extremely well.

There are 50 projects and each is shown with a step by step instruction guide and I have to say.. it is beautifully photographed. In fact it is probably the best photographed book I have seen. Curtains, Accessories and Shades are projects that are not only useful, but they are made extremely well. They all have a look of quality, and the muted colours of the fabrics are inspiring and stunning. I loved that I can upholster, pleat and frill and the basic ( there is a lot covered for giving it the 'basic' title) technique guide is clear and concise. At the front of this book is an inspiration guide, taking ideas from nature, the sea and foreign climes shows how you can find beauty in just about everything. I loved the hand painted fabric idea and will definitely be giving it a go. Even animals are used as ideas for cushions and curtains.  This is an amazing book, even if you just look at it. The projects are simple and delightful and there is something for everyone.  Perfect

    This book is great because it has so many different kinds of projects in it. If I decide to make roman shades for any of the rooms in my house, I would definitely use the instructions in this book. They are so clear. There are also really nice patterns for custom fit table cloths and a bunch of different pillow covers, placemats, and other various small household items. The fabric choices and styling for the book are definitely not my aesthetic. But, the way the projects are presented, its easy This book is great because it has so many different kinds of projects in it.

The fabric choices and styling for the book are definitely not my aesthetic. But, the way the projects are presented, its easy to see past the authors' fabric choices and styling and imagine the projects as they could be. The projects in here are so adaptable I think nearly anyone could find something they like in this book, regardless of their aesthetic preferences.
