Beyond Decorating Trends
About the Book
Timeless Design—Beyond Decorating Trends is a decorating book for today and every day. Don’t let marketing dictate how you decorate your home. Trends are created as marketing tools to sell merchandise. In truth, there is no good or bad design style, color scheme, or decade in which design originates … only good or bad design. Why is it that the trend you were so eager to adopt suddenly becomes outdated in eight years? Does design have a shelf life? Does it go bad when the next trend comes along? No, good design is timeless. It should be difficult to identify the year it was done. Every period has good and bad design. So the key is to recognize good design and apply it to your personal taste. Get off the design treadmill and create a home that suits your needs, comfort, and design style, a home that doesn’t need to be redecorated until you are ready to do so. Timeless Design gives you simple principles that can be applied to any room at any time. Each principle is accompanied by a room interior as an example. Timeless Design—Beyond Decorating Trends is the book for anyone who wants to make their home their own and not what marketing dictates.
