Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Former magazine editor, now author (Wall Effects, 2003), Ebben has created an up-to-the-moment interior project-cum-tutorial that is simple and design-worthy for any skill level and any home style. Wisely, she features 10 creative talents who will appeal to a wide variety of tastes, including Timorous Beasties as a bold imagist, Cath Kidston as an updated kitsch artist, and Anne Kyyro Quinn as a new Scandinavian three-dimensional spinner. These profiles are prefaced with a lush and photogenic introduction to the use of textiles, complete with ideas and sample treatments. The 22 home projects follow; most are relatively easy to fashion (given a nodding acquaintanceship with stitching and a sewing machine), and all feature simple directions amplified by photographs.
