Excerpt

Take a look around you. Right now, at the space you're in: What patterns, textures, color combinations define that space? What material is on the floor, the walls, the ceiling, the windows, the furniture—both in finishes and upholstery? How would you describe it? Is it pleasing? What is the personality of the space?

Now, close your eyes and think back to a childhood place. Maybe it was your room, a parent or grandparent's home, or a place you visited. Which pattern designs do you remember? One woman remembers large antique cabbage roses at her grandmother's place. A corporate executive remembers his childhood bedspread with cowboys—a room with a Wild West theme. I remember a green toile—what a story that scene told. And why, oh why, did the French men wear wigs, ribbons, and velvet knickers in the 1700s? How did that make it to the walls of an Atlanta bungalow in the 1950s?
