Color in Interior Design

2010-07-12T22:30:49.063+07:00

Best price: $33.83 DescriptionCreate dazzling color schemes for any indoor space. You'll quickly sharpen your color skills--and open the door to a more rewarding and profitable career with John F. Pile's Color in Interior Design. He takes the mystery out of working with color, showing you step-by-step how to plan color relationships in an organized and systematic way...prepare color schemes for interiors...make color charts...select materials...put together color samples...work with additive and subtractive color...understand the psychological impact of color...use color in functional spaces...and solve a wide range of practical color problems. This hands-on color design tool packs illustrations of the best color work by well-known professionals--plus a survery of color in historic interiors that will guide you through restoration and adaptive reuse projects.นิรนาม: I’m a do-it-yourself homeowner, not a professional, but I found this book to be a great resource as I plan out my house. “Scientific” enough to let me understand why color combinations work as they do (and help me design my own schemes) while still completely clear to the lay person. If you’re serious about understanding color, this is an extremely useful book.Rating: 4 / 5 Jon Evans: I found this book to be extremely useful in learning the principles behind choosing color schemes. As with anything, application and practice will fine tune one’s abilities, but C.i.I.D. proved to be an excellent resource guide. Highly recommended!Rating: 5 / 5 Valerie J.: If you are an interior design student and you want good interior design books, then, in your search, just key in the words “John Pile”. You just cannot go wrong. I have them all. Thanks, Mr. Pile. The books are well written, well produced, the paper excellent, photography excellent. Most of all, I like his style of writing, of getting his ideas across. He makes a student’s life so much easier.Rating: 5 / 5 Sheila D.:As a lay person just interested in learning more about the use of color in interior design, this was an excellent book. While the first several chapters were very “text bookish”, the remainder was very layman friendly. I feel more confident in undertaking color projects in my home and in conversing about the use of color with friends, who are now asking my opinions. The chapters that helped me the most were on the color wheel and color relationships. I enjoyed it and will now pursue my interest in color and design.Rating: 5 / 5 Katherine E. Heimark: This is a great color reference for interior designers, or aspiring designers. It is a great visual reference, offers very good detail and I use it often for reference when putting together story boards and offering ideas to clients.Rating: 5 / 5[...]



Re-inventing Kitchen Design

2010-07-12T22:23:32.665+07:00

Best price: $3.99 DescriptionAn inspiring design guide and practical resource.The kitchen is the home base for any family to prepare meals, eat, interact, read the paper, listen to the radio, watch TV, relax and more. No other room is used for so much by so many.Kitchen Culture is a beautifully illustrated reference for creating the home's busiest and most important room. The book explores how the kitchen influences sociability, family life and relationships with food and also examines how changing attitudes towards family life are changing kitchen design. Each generation invents its ideal kitchen -- reflecting personal views, lifestyles and the latest design concepts and technology.Kitchen Culture provides critical design advice for maximizing the role the kitchen plays. The book offers fresh ideas and fascinating possibilities for using the kitchen as a lounge, retreat, library, art gallery, playroom, activity center and hospitality zone. Topics include:  - Effective kitchen storage   - Working triangles and ergonomics  - Cooking, small appliances and tools  - Facilities for cooking  - Lighting, floors and work surfaces.Practical tips on materials and craftsmanship are also included along with a source list of suppliers and manufacturers.Kitchen Culture is the ideal reference for anyone designing a new home or remodeling a kitchen.M. Wyze:I’m addicted to coffee table books on home design, and I usually love kitchen design books- my all-time favorite book which I took on vacation and also recommended to my book club was “Great Kitchens”. I think that this book overpromised. Johnny Grey stated that he’s “reinventing kitchen design”. The reinvemtion is his trademark style of semi-circle curved cabinets and round and oval islands. The workmanship on these curved units is amazing and the photographs do them full justice. I was wondering where in the world a person would have curved cabinetry custom made…and lo! The cabinetry is available through “The Grey Guild”. Johnny Grey is the only kitchen designer featured in this book, which is terrific is you’re an ardent fan. I found that I was not a fan (yawn), seen one and you’ve seen the unique, all of the rest is style differences. The book, to me, was a shameless sales job for Johnny Grey and his organization. I would have given the book a “2″ rating, but the section on kitchen ergonomics at the back redeemed this book a little, in my opinion (finally something useful!). I do design, build, and live with new kitchens, as my husband and I are owner builders and rennovators. His kitchen designs would be a pleasure to cook in (for the most part), but the curved cabinetry would blow up my largest kitchen budget before appliances were purchased. These kitchens belong in multi-million dollar homes and they aren’t a reasonable design choice for even a million dollar home building budget. The money spends quickly in homebuilding, and a large part of the house budget is gone before the house is finished enough for kitchen purchases. In my expereince the kitchen budget receives the most scrutiny and is the source of most budget arguements. These “Grey” kitchens would pass muster only in a project where money was no object and the budget had no ceiling.Rating: 3 / 5 e ryan: The best kitchen design book I have ever seen. Grey has spent time evaluating the ergonomics of the kitchen from the proper height for the oven door, space between various dedicated work surfaces to raising the dish washer 14 inches so you never have to bend over to put your dishes in to be cleaned. It makes so much sense and the designs are diversifed from modern to classic traditional – and they are just beautiful! He is ecologically mindful and his advice from floors to counter tops to appliances was eye opening for me and very practical. I am designing my new kitchen based on his recommendations. The best news is it will work for me now with kids and still work for me when I am [...]

  • August West:
    This product is fine but AAA Home Furniture Discounts lacks integrity should be avoided at all costs. I have dealt with hundreds of Sellers in the Amazon Marketplace and AAA Home Furniture Discounts is by far the worst. They misrepresented the product and refused to replace damaged parts, then taunted me and said they would win against any claim I might file. They were completely unprofessional and never even sent an order acknowledgment or shipping notice. DO NOT REINFORCE THIS BEHAVIOR!

    This desk is a nice little piece of furniture and is so so easy to put together that a child could do it if need be.
    Rating: 5 / 5

  • Broadway:
    I read bad reviews of people getting damaged products from AAA Furniture store. I took a risk because of the good price at the time and the risk paid off. No scratches or chips. I guess I was one of the lucky ones. It was easy to assemble, suprisingly sturdy, and the perfect size for a desk top. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it because the wood looks rich and classy.

Over all was way to expensive for how it looks, local store has same table for $100 less. Looks okay, but not for $250 , I would expect a nicer piece, would have bought the matching hall table , but not now, will buy from local storeRating: 1 / 5 Hisham Merdad: Well, I ordered this table and got it on time (almost). Well I’m still waiting for the screws and stuff that attach the lower shelf to the rest of the table. This is more than a month after making the order. The rest of the table is good, solid and very handsome.Rating: 3 / 5 Monroe F. Kane: Winsome 20238 Black Beechwood COFFEE TABLE TWO DRAWERS ONE BOTTOM SHELFGreat little table. There was a ding on the front edge from shipping, but it was minimal. You will need small hands to get in to tighten leg screws during assembly.Rating: 4 / 5 D. Ramey: I like the table a lot. It’s just what I expected it to be. My problem is with the paint. I ordered black, what I got was antique black. Apparently that means black but with a not so great paint job. I’ve decided to keep it and repaint it to match some speakers in the room, so in my case it will actually work out better, but be warned. Rating: 4 / 5[...]



The Paper Architect: Fold-It-Yourself Buildings and Structures

2010-07-11T22:53:24.849+07:00

Best price: $15.70 DescriptionThe Taj Mahal may have taken 22 years to build, but you can do it in less than a day! Using crisp folds and a craft knife, you can easily recreate the world’s greatest architectural structures from ordinary sheets of paper. Whether you’re building the White House after dinner or crafting an origami version of the Eiffel Tower in an afternoon–and then folding it up to send to a friend in Paris–The Paper Architect guides you through every step of the process. The directions for building these replicas are clear and easy to follow. In fact, the book contains an entire section of removable templates with color-coded fold lines that make construction simple enough for a first-time folder. All that’s needed is a craft knife, a metal-edged ruler, a cutting mat, and a clear work surface. For those looking for more of a challenge, the patterns can be enlarged or traced onto special paper for endless variations. Each project also includes a wealth of information, from the history of the buildings and technical drawings to the raw materials used during construction. With quick facts that supplement the text, step-by-step illustrations, and clear instructions, all of these display-worthy projects can be mastered with no previous paper craft or architectural experience!Andrew Crawford: This gorgeous book starts with several pages of basic and generalassembly instructions. However, each model includes detailedconstruction directions, along with detailed notes and statistics aboutthe real structures. There are, of course, photos of the buildings and,excellent-quality full-page photos of the completed OA models.Good origamic architects clearly had a hand in the book design. Being hard-covered spiral-bound, it lays nice and flat. Pattern pages collected in the back of the book are perforated for easy removal.All three authors have announcements on their sites with additionaldetails, including lists of all the patterns in the book.Congratulations to all three artists on this fantastic new book!Rating: 5 / 5 Sacramento Book Review: I was first impressed with the high quality of this book; it is durable… made for families to use for fun and thought-provoking projects. Who knew that cutting and folding paper in classically designed buildings could be such quiet fun? The only drawback to the book is that the projects encased therein require a trip to an office supply store, for not everyone has 65# cardstock lying around. The upside is that one can purchase the items necessary for $30 and use them for all the `buildings’. Our three oldest children at first thought paper would be `boring’ to play with but soon they were folding, scoring and cutting under the watchful eye of mom and dad… quietly. There are so many kid activities which generate noise and energy, but this proved to be a calm way to spend an hour, not to mention it’s an introduction to the basic elements of architecture.We were able to copy the templates onto the cardstock with little trouble. The directions were slightly vague but the accompanying pictures make up for this, along with well-backlit snapshots of the finished product. Our `Parthenon’ came out nicely for an initial foray into origami architecture. Reviewed by Meredith GreeneRating: 3 / 5 Midwest Book Review: Crafters who would create miniature replicas of the world’s great architecture, from the London Eye to the Parthenon and the Golden Gate Bridge, will relish this collection of fold-it-yourself buildings and structures offering 20 templates for construction. Step-by-step, clear directions accompany easy and fun diagrams, photos and templates perfect for paper crafters and libraries catering to them.Rating: 5 / 5 J. T. Sandgren: This is a thoroughly enjoyable book, and a great introduction to popup architecture.

E. Jensen:
Bought three of these (one of each color), seem like a standard child’s chair. As inexpensive or moreso than local availability (local was sold out for us). My 1 year old has a bit of trouble climbing in and out of it (but what can you expect?) but my 2.5 year old does great with it, seems like it would fit a child up to 7. (I’ve got a tall 4.5 year-old, he fits it with room to grow).
Rating: 4 / 5

Brendan Gallivan:
Okay quality chair, but it was pretty inexpensive, so I didn’t expect much. I bought it because it has a lock and it was quite a bit less expensive vs. similar products. Quality was about what I expected for the price, but a couple of the screws that hold the fabric to the aluminum frame fell out. They are sheet metal screws, so I re-installed them, but they were still pretty loose. Not critical, but shows they are not top quality.
Rating: 3 / 5

Bob:
This chair sit very low to the ground which is great for a child from 1-2 years of age. My 2.5 year old has nearly outgrown the chair.
Rating: 2 / 5

Stephanie:
I’m satisfied. It’s a nice little chair. My daughter was thrilled with it, and even better, it comes in her favorite color…blue. Nice job, Redmon. No complaints here.
Rating: 4 / 5

ISABEL JIMENEZ:
I bought this for my 2 year old nephew and he loves it. The chair is perfect for him and he loves to put his sippy cup in the cup holder. The chair is sturdy and can be used indoors and out.
