Here areall those exquisite floral-printed fabrics of April Cornell that go into her bestselling tablecloths, place mats, and quilts. Whether wishing to transform simply by changing a tablecloth or by outfitting an entire living space, the art of April Cornell At Home shows you how by using April's specialized palettes, one created for every season. Using these palettes, any of her patterns - whether they be a strip, a plaid, or a floral- can be combined effortlessly to give your home the look you want. Inspiredby nature and the beauty and ancient craftsmanship of the East, company co-founder, April Cornell, distills a lifetime of looking, absorbing, mixing, and matching floral prints. The joyous array of design choices that confronts the reader is, in April's world, a visual delight rather than a dilemma. April thinks the "everyday" should be beautiful; so she advocates using even the little details of pot holders, kitchen towels, and table runners to subtly create elegance and brightness in a household. Whilemost interior design books leaver readers in a no-man's-land when it comes to sourcing materials, or actually getting the look they want, the French/Victorian patterns and floral prints feature in April Cornell At Home are a well-integrated part of AprilCornell's stores, other retailers, and April's website as well. In this book the novice decorator with little or no confidence can take comfort in the ease of April Cornell's tips while the seasoned decorator is equally invited to leap into a glorious array of inspired floral prints. Instructional yet inspirational, here is a gorgeous book in which April Cornell for the first time explains in detail her revered style.
