A Bit of Velvet & a Dash of Lace : The Fabulous Interiors of Magnolia Pearl
In 2001, Texas Hill Country textile artist Robin Brown established Magnolia Pearl--a design company showcasing her unique and remarkable style. Almost instantly, she became a cult figure to the fashionable young women who snap up her fantastic bags and couture clothing at high-end boutiques across the country. Now, in her first lavishly photographed book, Robin explains her interior design philosophy and shows us all how much you can do with just "a bit of velvet and a dash of lace."In her fresh, young, and truly one-of-a-kind approach to home decoration, Brown combines colors, textures, and materials to create environments of endlessly fascinating detail. Her incredibly ornate rooms feature an eclectic mix of Victorian, oriental, and vintage American decor--yet they're easy and affordable to duplicate and personalize.In addition to taking us layer by layer through each phase of decoration, and providing easy-to-follow and irresistible projects, Robin offers a delightful discussion of her unusual childhood that's as personal and inviting as her own designs.
