Then, room by room, each chapter will show you how best to pull together mismatched items into cohesive schemes, how to upcycle furniture, and how to introduce some clever ideas for storage. You will learn how to create certain styles in your home, from French-inspired antique chic, to the cosmopolitan eclectic and the steel-finished urban cutting-edge.
