1st American ed.
With Kaffe's background as a painter and his extraordinary talent for combining colors and textures, it is no surprise that the interiors he designs are a bold mix of eclectic elements. His starting point may be a conventional theme, such as Squares, Leaves or Mosaics, yet in his hands the resulting rooms display a wonderful juxtaposition of different colors, motifs and decorative ideas. Based on seven overall themes, Kaffe has created, in his own home, stunning room sets, each one full of practical projects. A wide range of crafts is used to achieve the look, including not only plenty of knitting and needlepoint pieces, such as cushions and throws, but also rag rugs, wallpaper borders, collage screens and mosaics. From the extravagant gypsy style of the Flowers theme to the quieter, more subtle approach of Mosaics, each room set is different in feel and tone, ensuring that there is something to suit every taste and style of decor. With full instructions and charts provided for each project and a chapter on the general techniques needed to create everything from a mosaic tabletop to a collage screen, all the ideas featured in the book are eminently accessible. Kaffe's conviction that anyone can learn how to stitch in a matter of minutes is extended to his other design ideas - there are no complicated techniques or expensive materials needed here, and he encourages readers to use his basic ideas to experiment on their own.
