Beginnings of Interior E.

Lynn M. Jones, Phyllis Sloan Allen. What designers really do: A practical introduction to interior design. Beginnings of Interior Environments, 11e, provides a practical approach to introductory interior design. The text addresses interior design holistically, stressing the importance of commercial and residential environments equally.

Phyllis S. Allen, Brenau University. Miriam F. Stimpson, Brigham Young University. Lynn M. Jones, ASID, IIDA, IDEC, Brenau University. It introduces readers to the history, design fundamentals, and building systems (construction, electrical, mechanical) of design.

This gift was very much appreciated. It was in great condition and exceeded the recipients expectations. Now need to get the 10th edition.
Use this ALOT as a reference for the interior design course I'm taking. Not sure why, but I prefer the older edition than the newer ones.
I’ve got to say it: This 1994 book has 6 earlier iterations, and it may be assumed that there are later ones. This 7th edition is crammed with interior design information and is aimed at those who deal mainly with residential and some nonresidential design. At the end of the book on page 426, there is a table for listing degrees and diplomas for those who study interior design.

“Beginnings of Interior Design” is a hard-cover book with dust cover that has 458 semi-glossy pages, which contain hundreds of color or black and white photos and other graphics.

This book was published as a snapshot in time, presenting the current knowledge base in this topic at that time. Also, computer-aided design (CAD) then were not as advanced as what they are today, so we can’t hold either of these points against the book while we read it today, 24 years later.

The general bones of the book are very good, and it’s written by two people: Phyllis Sloan Allen (no background is given) and Miriam F. Stimpson who teaches at Brigham Young University. This 7th edition contains new chapters on lighting and accessories.

The publisher is MacMillan Publishing Company, Englewood Cliffs.

The ‘Preface’ states that: “Interior design has a profound and direct influence on our everyday lives….Our surroundings can lift our spirits, give us comfort, and enrich our lives.”

Continuing, the goals of the text encompass “ways to enrich interior space while taking into account the challenges that confront professional designers today: (mainly) space limitations…”

For this edition, “we have made a special effort…to include the most current information on such topics as greening the environment, recycling, healthy environments, energy conservation, preservation of endangered materials, government codes and regulations, designs for special needs users, and computer-aided design (CAD).”

The layout of the book is great for textbooks, with easy markings to denote the Chapters, sub-Chapters, beginning Chapter listings of main points, the use of bullets and numbers to denote main ideas, tables, and there are some end-of Chapter Assignments scattered throughout the book.

The ‘Contents’ list 6 main Parts containing a total of 14 Chapters. Buy the book to see the photos, graphics, and read the Chapters and sub-Chapters.
Part 1: Design Theory and Applications
Part 2: Space Planning
Part 3: Interior Materials and Components
Part 4: Furniture and Furnishings
Part 5: Interior and Exterior Styles
Part 6: The Profession of Interior Design

This is a very well-written book academically because it contains the necessary sections that help readers understand the topic but also gives them other means to learn more. These parts include the: Glossary, Bibliography (which lists several other interior design books that I also have), and Index.

This is a great book on interior design that people in this and related fields should have on their bookshelves.
