Description

The Interior Design Reference & Specification Book collects the information essential to planning and executing interior projects of all shapes and sizes, and distills it in a format that is as easy to use as it is to carry. In this new, revised edition, you'll also find interviews with top practitioners drawn across the field of interior design.

Some of the topics this excellent reference will explore with you include:

-Fundamentals: Provides a step-by-step overview of an interior project, describing the scope of professional services, the project schedule, and the design and presentation tools used by designers.

-Space: Examines ways of composing rooms as spatial environments while speaking to functional and life-safety concerns.

-Surface: Identifies options in color, material, texture, and pattern, while addressing maintenance and performance issues.

-Environments: Looks at aspects of interior design that help create a specific mood or character, such as natural and artificial lighting, sound, and smell.

-Elements: Describes the selection and specification of furniture and fixtures, as well as other components essential to an interior environment, such as artwork and accessories.

-Resources: Gathers a wealth of useful data, from sustainability guidelines to online sources for interiors-related research.
