The first edition of Estimating for Interior Designers quickly became the “bible” for interior designers everywhere. This completely updated and revised edition provides all the basic, nuts-and-bolts information readers expect, along with all-new sections on faux finishing, including trompe l'oeil; Roman shades; and using upholstery fabrics for drapery and bed coverings. There is also a completely new chapter on hard floor coverings, including marble, stone, wood, painted canvas, and vinyl. Of course, all materials and labor cost figures have been updated.
Carol A. Sampson, now affiliated with the International Interior Design Association, has been a practicing interior designer for 30 years. She is a representative for an interior fabrics company with offices in Nevada, Arizona, and New Mexico.
