Much more than plain white walls and minimalist decoration, contemporary decoration is about the strong use of colour, the exploitation of texture and smooth, clean lines. Focusing on the principal elements that make up the home - walls, floors, windows and doors, furniture and furnishings, storage and display - the authors introduce us to materials not usually considered for the home: glass bricks for the walls; concrete and rubber for floors; metal for doors; and encourage the reader to experiment with colours, fabrics and lighting. Practical projects in the book include chic folding window shutters made from perspex and inexpensive streamlined flooring created from squares of hardboard.
