Book Review: Interior Design by Jenny Gibbs – Aimed at prospective and new students, this book gives a comprehensive introduction to the nature and practice of interior design as well as invaluable information about education and careers and gives a balanced inside view of the business today. Its broad, up-to-date approach unites history, theory and practice. Subjects covered include how to develop a brief with a client; presentations and sample boards; choosing materials and designs; project planning and management.
For the new edition, many of the examples of interiors have been updated and there is additional information on sustainability in interior design.
The sections covering drawings and CAD have also been thoroughly revised and expanded to take account of changes in current practice in this area and also to provide more practical guidance on drawing, either by hand or using CAD software.
