Girls will like this good basic book on interior decorating. What to do -- why -- how -- techniques -- background, with constant stress on the importance of making plan and following through. Brief -- fully illustrated -- historical outline of periods, with today's application problems of budget, family needs, possessions on hand. The sections on color are particularly good, though they need close study. Fabrics-walls-ceilings-floors-accessories-care and upkeep, all succinctly handled. The tests at the end serve as a check on how much you know.
