Editorial Reviews

Review

"I can't imagine anyone who has more fun at work than the dashing, devil-may-care decorator Thom Filicia -- and he brings that passion to the pages of Thom Filicia Style, the go-to guide to navigating the world of design. With indispensable information, expert tips, lush photos, and a wicked wit, he takes you on a no-nonsense journey whose destination is a confident new look for your home."-- Margaret Russell, editor in chief, Elle Decor

"Thom Filicia is a genius, effortlessly mixing materials and eras to create spaces that are both hypersophisticated and extremely livable. Somehow, he never loses sight of the human being amid all that fabulous furniture and fabric. So yeah, this book is drop-dead gorgeous, but it's also warm, friendly, and down-to-earth -- just like its author. Finally, a designer book that truly demystifies the process for us mere mortals."-- Sara Gray Miller, editor in chief, O at Home

"From apprenticing with legendary designer Albert Hadley to finding television celebrity, Thom has mastered his own brand of eclectic, organic, American-chic -- and is generously willing to help a broader audience experience, live with, and love design, too. His first book is not only a visual treat but also a friendly, easy-to-navigate guide crammed with useful tips, from 'every room needs a surprise' to 'lose the matchy matchy-ness.'"-- Cindy Allen, editor in chief, Interior Design

"Thom Filicia is like a superhero of style. He crusades against the scourge of bad taste by empowering regular citizens to look within themselves and embrace their inner decorator. His delicious new book spreads the gospel according to Thom: Don't Worry, Be Fabulous!"-- Mayer Rus, design editor, Los Angeles Times Magazine

"An insider who's invited everyone to the party, Thom has created a book that's part luscious page-turner, part hilarious autobiography, and crazily useful. I don't know if I want to keep it on the coffee table, bedside table, or in the design library, but I do know I want to keep it."-- Sara Ruffin Costello, creative director, Domino

"Thom is a total inspiration to me! The fact that he could think on his feet with such brilliance and accessible practicality on the groundbreaking Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was a revelation to me. To be able to see a diamond in the rough the way Thom does with forlorn rooms is sheer magic. Beyond that, Thom is about the nicest guy you will ever meet. He is brimming with enthusiasm and talent, with a fresh, elegant eye, and this book illustrates how far that goes. This book will be invaluable for anyone who cares about design and how it can actually empower your life."-- Wendy Goodman, design editor, New York

"In this spirited, droll, and informative romp through his career, work, and design philosophy, Thom Filicia shares with readers his inspirations and his pragmatic solutions for creating environments as suave and engaging as himself."-- Hamish Bowles, editor at large, Vogue Living

About the Author

Thom Filicia, since gaining fame as the quick-witted and charming interior designer on the Emmy-winning television hit Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, has emerged as one of today's most influential and respected interior designers. Host of the Style Network's top-rated show, Dress My Nest, Thom's projects and ideas have been featured everywhere -- from The Oprah Winfrey Show to The New York Times, from Elle Decor to W, and from House Beautiful to InStyle.

Before being catapulted into the national spotlight, Thom established himself as a major player in the design industry through his day-to-day work. After earning his B.A. in design from the prestigious School of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University, he joined Parish-Hadley, one of the country's most distinguished interior design firms. He then worked for renowned designer Jeffrey Bilhuber before founding Thom Filicia, Inc., in 1998. He was named one of House & Garden's Top 50 Tastemakers, one of House Beautiful's Top 100 American Designers, and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Art Direction for his work on Queer Eye. Thom's far-ranging commissions have included everything from designing the tents for the Olympus Fashion Week, to the W Hotels in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Atlanta, and to the United States VIP Suite at the World's Fair in Aichi, Japan.

Very smart and great ideas.

So while Thom Filicia has excellent taste and style, this book makes it about you, not about him.

This guy knows what he does and he is good.

First, I have to say that this is a gorgeous book with beautiful photographs. Even if you're not looking to redecorate, it is a wonderful book to flip through and keep on your coffee table.

On top of that, it's all about using your own personal style to decorate your space. So while Thom Filicia has excellent taste and style, this book makes it about you, not about him. I just moved into a new apartment, and this book could not have been more helpful in helping me figure out how best to decorate it. I was able to use a lot of the pieces that I already own, but in ways that only made them look better. This book is a great inspiration.

A friend gave me this book, I guess because she felt like my apartment looked like a mish-mash of things I liked, without any real connection.
From the minute I opened Thom's book I realized with just a few additions and rearranging I could transform my own style into a great looking apartment that was still all about me. I recently had a dinner party and people were amazed with the transformation - I was even accused of hiring a designer to help!
And the book is beautiful, so now it's on display as it well deserves to be.
I've got a bunch of other single friends living in NYC and I plan to give them all this book for the holidays!

This book is beautiful! The photos and graphics are fabulous and the advice is so useful! I love how Thom's designs are assembled - they are a mix of new items, antiques and collections that you already own but made so much more beautiful by the colors and surface materials. The absolute truth is that I've already stolen one of his ideas and implemented it in my new house - and it looks great!

Even if you don't know what your design aesthetic is (or know what that means!) Thom Filicia's book will surely draw it out. I found so many things appealing about the book with the practical tips for home decor, accompanied by beautiful photos, and even moods that you can refer to when considering how to decorate or just add something new to your home. I keep this in my living room and thoroughly enjoy looking at it regularly as it seems I always find or learn something new.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Classicdude on January 27, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Packed with lots of achievable ideas, this is best when used as a Do-It-Yourself guide. After just a few words of introduction by Albert Hadley, a bio complete with time line is given. Mr Filicia worked as an intern at the legendary interior design firm Parish-Hadley before going on to the office of Robert Metzger and then Jeffrey Bilhuber. He gained critical acclaim from the design magazines when opening his own office, but celebrity status came when he was one of the stars of the cable TV series "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy".

The projects, often accompanied with a floor plan to show the layout, tend to feature furniture of the hand-me-down variety combined with accessories that often appear more like props to make an interesting photo than to really contribute to the design of the room. Not a bad approach in decorating one's own home, to be sure. This is a good book for young marrieds looking to achieve some style on a budget. But for those wanting to learn the finer points of interior design, there are better books for study.

Format: Hardcover
There are plenty of ideas ideas in this book to help you create an attractive home. There are tips galore, such as: "Neutral rooms loaded with tactile zing seem drenched in color--but better" (p 68). Most of the rooms he decorated are more modern than traditional, but even in the traditional rooms he tackled he brings a fresh outlook to, such as the faux mastadon tusks he placed above a sofa on page 38. That was something I would never have considered! There is also a helpful section at the end showing case studies, so you can pull everything together.

I'm a retired interior designer and am a sucker for design and decorating books. I own several and Thom Filicia's book is one of the best. Maybe that's because my personal style is very similar but even if it weren't, this book would have appealed to me. Beautiful color photos on every page, witty commentary and good, solid practical advice make it a must for anyone interested in beautiful interiors. Mr. Filicia is one of best American designers working today.

I loved Thom Filica's show, Dress My Nest, and I love this book just as much. It's equal parts glamor, equal parts vintage modern. It's just a great design book all the way around.
