Interiors provides information on which materials can be used for floors, walls, ceilings, in kitchens or bathrooms with an objective and detailed introduction explaining the specific characteristics of each material. In addition to the technical information, the advantages and disadvantages of each material are described so that the reader gets a deep understanding of how the choice of concrete, natural stone or bamboo for a floor or the usage of wood, textile, ceramics or gesso on a wall or ceiling will transform the space. More than 1,500 illustrations demonstrate not only how "warm" and "cold" materials can be harmoniously juxtaposed, but also how a successful synthesis of function and aesthetics can be achieved.
