This exciting book will enable home decorators and artists to swath their homes and workspaces in faux fashion without breaking the bank. Sidebars and photographs illustrate how to fake it from floor to ceiling, with projects including special Gallic effects such as trompe l'oeil; glazing, marbling, and striping techniques for walls and ceilings; antique furniture look-alikes transformed from flea- market finds; floors that recall the cobblestone streets of New England; art prints and collectibles; accents such as fireplaces, trellises, and Brittany lace window treatments. A fun and practical guide to decorating in the Faux Chic philosophy of style, color, comfort, and charm, this book will help readers transform ordinary living spaces into fabulous fake London flats, charming Tuscany farmhouses, and more."@en ;
