Instructional and inspirational, she offers an array of guidance for the table, bedroom, and bath - and all of the elements and occasions thereof. Beautifully illustrated while at once informative, there is also an invaluable do-it-yourself element that shows the reader the potential to change the look of a room with linens without having to redecorate the space.From simple to lavish, Linens transforms the idea of what it means to live and entertain with linens in new and unexpected ways.
