With a focus on Schumacher's greatest contemporary patterns--everything from classic stripes and exuberant florals to edgy animal prints--this accessible and highly useful style guide is organized thematically by chapters such as "Sensual & Spare"; "Preppy"; "Ladylike"; "Exuberant"; and "Opulent," with each featuring a stunning selection of patterns along with inspiring interiors designed in the same spirit. To help readers better understand their style preferences, every chapter begins with a questionnaire, for example: "Are You an Acolyte of High Style?" "Do You Prefer a Midnight Supper to a Power Lunch?"; "Consider Jewel Tones Neutral?"; "Think Champagne Is Not Just for Special Occasions?"
