Uncover the glory in your home! Use paint to create inspired living spaces that reflect your style and your home's character.Once upon a time, there was a sad little Victorian house on the corner, abandoned by its previous owners and abused by time. Your Home, A Living Canvas is the Cinderella story of that house and its transformation into a charming, historic home, thanks to the loving care of acclaimed decorative artisan, Curtis L. Heuser.From the grand staircase to the cozy third-floor master suite, this book takes you along on the complete floor-to-ceiling, room-by-room makeover. You'll learn about the design concepts and inspirations for each space, along with real-world how-to's behind the wall treatments, ceiling features, architectural highlights, and other exquisite details.A series of 25+ step-by-step demonstrations show how Heuser used murals, trompe l'oeil and faux finishes to blend old with new, reclaiming the spirit of the house's former glory, while incorporating unique personal touches.- Covers a range of decorative styles, from the exotic crackle-finish bookcases in the study, to the Italian country villa-inspired kitchen, to a sophisticated dining room that embodies the Old World ambiance of classic European interiors.- Offers a wealth of expert decorating advice on using color to evoke mood, displaying your collections, mixing and matching eclectic furnishings, and more.Whether you're interested in a simple faux finish technique or are dedicated to preserving the architecture and charm of your own historic dwelling, this book will help you create a living environment rich in color, texture and atmosphere ... a place called "home."

I haven't got anything bad to say.

The work that Curtis L. Heuser has done to this house is astonishing, he has the most beautiful and creative artistic talents. To call him an interior designer would be an insult, because his style is not that of an interior designer. The book itself is lovingly put together, with plenty of photographs to ignite the imagination and clear instructions on how to recreate the designs for yourself. The writing has a huge injection of personality and humor which makes it an utter joy to read. If you are only going to by one book on home design then it should be this one - a joy!
