Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
For many people, interior design is a mystery: they know what they like when they see it, but have no idea how to put it together themselves. This video provides guidelines on how to transform an empty room into an attractive and functional living space. Professional interior designer Robin Strangis explains how to develop a personalized design concept that includes the use of scaled floor plans and demonstrates how to coordinate colors, fabrics, lighting, and accessories. Sample rooms decorated in 18th-century English and American, American and European country, Arts and Crafts, soft contemporary, international contemporary, rustic, and eclectic styles are featured. Correlates to all applicable National and State Educational Standards including the NCLB Act.
