"This book combines the essence of architecture and art, and explores how designers find new ways in which to balance the various contradictions and conflicts and to perfectly express their understanding of space and the owners’ initial ideas and requirements. At the same time, each new project always contains many uncertain factors that refer to the furnishings or even space composition. Each of these factors seem to tell a never ending story and records people’s feeling of excitement, confusion, recalling and longing. In order to illustrate the essence of interior design in a more accurate way, this book has systematically deconstructed every aspect of interior design that refers to space, structure, interface, decoration as well as special areas. Each aspect is highly detailed and illustrated from the point of functional area, besides, descriptive text and the corresponding plan vividly recur the transformation from plane to space, from the abstract to the intuition.Readers will not only find inspiration from the projects showcased in this book, but will also experience the peculiarity of interior design and enjoy the tactile sensation of the textured space."

Principles of Home Decoration With Practical Examples by Candace Wheeler CHAPTER I DECORATION AS AN ART "Who creates a Home, creates a potent spirit which in turn doth fashion him that fashioned." Probably no art has so few masters as that of decoration. In England, Morris was for many years the great leader, but among his followers in England no one has attained the dignity of unquestioned authority; and in America, in spite of far more general practice of the art, we still are without a leader whose very name establishes law. It is true we are free to draw inspiration from the same sources which supplied Morris and the men associated with him in his enthusiasms, and in fact we do lean, as they did, upon English eighteenth-century domestic art-and derive from the men who made that period famous many of our articles of faith; but there are almost no authoritative books upon the subject of appropriate modern decoration. Our text books are still to be written; and one must glean knowledge from many sources, shape it into rules, and test the rules, before adopting them as safe guides. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.
