Paint and fabrics do not simply cover and protect, they must evoke the right atmosphere, creating a feeling of relaxation, vibrancy or comfort. Turning these aspirations into reality can involve a multitude of alterations, large and small, from rethinking a space to re-covering a chair.

Interior Transformations" shows beautiful ways of transforming every room in the home.

We have never demanded so much from our homes. Not only must they satisfy the myriad practical needs of modern life, we also want them to express our tastes and personal style. Paint and fabrics do not simply cover and protect, they must evoke the right atmosphere, creating a feeling of relaxation, vibrancy or comfort. Turning these aspirations into reality can involve a multitude of alterations, large and small, from rethinking a space to re-covering a chair. In this book Ann Grafton provides the design skills, decorating ideas and confidence needed to make these changes. Drawing on her expertise she has developed as Creative Director of the Colefax Group, she shows how to transform our interiors so they live up to all our expectations. She begins by discussing the vital decisions that need to be made about space, light, colour, surfaces, fabrics and furniture; looking not just at different materials and techniques but at the effects they create. She then applies these lessons to every area of the home, from hallways to bathrooms, and explains how to create a range of fresh and achievable interior styles. In the final part of the book she offers clever ideas for revitalising rooms without the need for a complete redesign. Throughout Interior Transformations Ann Grafton imparts her realism and common sense for choosing and using decorative materials, and offers valuable advice on planning and budgeting. Complementing the text are specially commissioned photographs that illustrate a wide range of decorative effects and alternative interior schemes. Themed palettes help in the selection of colours and fabrics. All these features, plus an extensive list of suppliers, make this a superb resource for anyone who wants to ring the changes in their home.

This interior design book has a much lighter palette of colors, than say, Colefax & Fowler's Interior Inspirations (dark woods, old english country style).
While the images seem deceptively simple, the juxtaposition of colors, neutrals and contrasts of textures packs a punch. There are lots of plaids, stripes, assorted ticking fabrics and some toile presented in this beautiful full color book (my favorite is the photograph of a blue and white eiderdown made from a contemporary print fabric, but bordered in an antique floral remnant, p.94).
For anyone familiar with Katrin Cargill's books on swedish style and fabric decorating (Cargill's Fabrications book is the *perfect* companion to this volume - the use of fabrics are almost identical; Cargill's book is closer to a sewing sourcebook), Grafton and Cargill share the same design sensibilities; that style is inherently english. The book is also faintly reminiscent of the current Laura Ashley look. Perfect if you're looking to decorate your living quarters for the summer, or even year-round.

This is my favorite coffee table interior design book. I like to give it a flip-through when I need some ideas, or just want to look at some lovely interiors. It is not really a how-to book (there are no DIY projects included), so I give it three stars because of this. But I love Ann Grafton's ways with pattern and fabrics, and her refined, yet comfortable style.
