The Zen home is tranquil and calm, it is light and airy, and it is natural and balanced. This title draws the ancient philosophy of Zen into modern context and shows how it can be applied to all areas of home decorating, both indoors and out, to create a home that is restful on the mind and pleasing to the eye. Containing ideas and practical projects, it seeks to enable the homemaker to adapt an existing style or start from scratch without feeling daunted.;Each of the ten chapters introduces a simple project to help you add a really personal statement, and step-by-step instructions for making them can be found at the back of the book. Projects include: a screen divider; textured cushions; paint effects; a cotton curtain decorated with embroidered spirals; a paper lantern; a wood and pebble coffee table; a chair cover; garden chimes; and a Zen flower and foliage arrangement.
