This delightful book set is an exhaustive encyclopedia of interior design and decorating from the early 1970s. The books are organized like any other encyclopedia set and have topics arranged alphabetically. This set is complete in 18 volumes and is 11 x 10.25 inches.

Some of the topics included:

- Textures
- Pattern
- Outdoor Living
- Bedrooms
- Bookcases and Bookshelves
- Antiquing
- Sofas
- Remodeling
- ABCs of Decorating
- Window Treatments
- Wall Coverings
- Mirrors
- Laundry Centers
- Guest Rooms
- Furniture Styles
- Floors and Floor Coverings
- Family Rooms
- Cooking Islands
- Color

The illustrations are at times fabulous, outlandish, useful, and entertaining. This set is such a delight to flip through.

This set is in great condition. They were purchased from an estate sale and had lived on a family room bookshelf for many years. All the dust jackets had been ripped to show the volume numbers, so the book spines are faded over the volume numbers. It appears all sets of this type have the same tears on the dust jackets.
