Featuring more than 25 rooms using Liberty of London fabrics, this book's design schemes are all from British homes. The author explains why the owners chose their fabrics; then she proposes a different print for the room to create a new look, which is shown in a color illustration. Watkins, an English fashion designer, also gives instructions, with drawings, for sewing curtains, bedspreads, slipcovers, cushions, tablecloths and tented ceilings. (Simon and Schuster, $25).
