This book contains a collection of authentic interior and exterior colour schemes for Australian houses built between about 1820 and 1940s. The interior schemes consist of complete decorative effects and finishes for twenty-five suites of rooms, with colours and finishes for every surface from the skirting board to the ceiling rose. There are sixteen authentic exterior schemes, carefully collected from buildings that range from early nineteenth-century farm houses to bungalows, terraces and cottages. Everything from colour selection to wallpaper and stencil designs of the various periods is covered in a comprehensive discussion of traditional painting and decorating techniques and practices. Colours, wallpaper patterns and stencils are all authentic to the period in which they are used. Written by three specialists in this complex field after years of research and preparation, More Colour Schemes for Old Australian Homes will make a useful contribution to any restoration project.
