"In this sumptuous paperback volume, Graham Rust, the accomplished painter and muralist, showcases his distinctive vision with one hundred decorative designs for every room in the house, including objects large and small, from cupboards and firescreens to delicate miniature boxes, as well as grand mural schemes for whole rooms, executed on panels and walls. The result is both an enchanting world of exotic and colorful interiors and a practical sourcebook of ideas for amateur and professional decorators alike. Some items, such as stationery, bookplates and monograms, are suitable for everyday personal use, while a few are frankly whimsical, such as the chinoiserie dog kennel or the cocktail tray with a design of jewel-like frogs. In his previous acclaimed book on mural painting, The Painted House, Rust fulfilled his dream project of muraling an entire mansion, room by room. In Decorative Designs, he expands his vision, presenting ideas with practical application for an entire range of objects that can personalize any home, large or small. Lavishly illustrated in color throughout with original sketches alongside finished works, Decorative Designs offers a breathtaking vista of creative ideas from one of the world's leading decorative artists. A must for interior designers and decorative painters, it cannot fail to inspire anyone who dreams of creating a uniquely beautiful home."
