But no one will hate the looks in The Naked Wall, the book that shows exactly how to dramatically transform rooms instantly. The first section, Dress It, covers tips, techniques, and inspiration for choosing color, painting, accenting, and adding faux finishes, trompe l’oeil, murals, wallpaper, plaster, fabric, brick, tile, and wood. In section two, Accessorize It, the experienced and talented authors explain choosing and hanging art, framing art, displaying collections, and dressing the wall with mirrors, screens, textiles, and more. Eleven great how-to fast-and-fabulous projects—great for girlfriends and groups of friends—show exactly how to take walls from buck naked to best dressed.
