Aimed at prospective and new students, this book gives a comprehensive introduction to the nature and practice of interior design as well as invaluable information about education and careers, and gives a balanced inside view of the business today. Its broad, up-to-date approach unites history, theory, and practice. Subjects covered include how to develop a program with a client; presentations and sample boards; choosing materials and designs; project planning and management. For the new edition, many of the examples of interiors have been updated and there is additional information on sustainability in interior design. The sections covering drawings and CAD have also been thoroughly revised and expanded to take account of changes in current practice in this area and also to provide more practical guidance on drawing, either by hand or using CAD software.
Jenny Gibbs is Principal of the KLC School of Design in London. A regular lecturer and broadcaster, she is also the author of A Handbook for Interior Designers (1995) and The Country House: Classic Style for an Elegant House (1997).
