From Library Journal:

For a fund-raiser to benefit Katrina victims, first-time author Van Dooren and fellow artists completely renovated a 1940s home with faux treatments and original artwork. The result is a showcase, from a Moroccan parlor to fairies in the nursery. While perhaps a bit fanciful, the finished work is truly stunning, with astonishing faux treatments and trompe l'oeil. Each part of the house is covered, with each reflecting a different style and the talents of different artists accompanied by insights into technique. Beautiful photo spreads make you look twice to see what's real and what's faux. Instead of aiming at instruction, this book successfully presents a range of possibilities meant to inspire. Recommended for larger libraries or well-rounded interior design and decorating collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
