The styles represented are fresh and vibrant; this book should appeal to folks who like modern, vintage, flea-market, DIY, urban, retro, cottage, rural, industrial, bohemian, global, mid-century, heirloom, Apartment Therapy, eclectic and any variation on these themes. These are real homes in which you can easily imagine folks living. It is fun to see designers Jonathan Adler & Simon Doonan's home and Vicente Wolf's loft in the mix. If you've ever wondered how one-room living and sleeping would be, Liz Bauer's NYC studio apartment in this book (and Billy Baldwin's from another book) are convincing that you can have a bed in your living room and still look stylish! Loved her space.
This book exceeded my expectations--didn't really know what to expect regarding how 1000 quality design ideas would fit in one book--and think it will be especially valuable to those who want their home to express them and their personal vision of a lively, lovable and livable space.
P.S. Thanks for sharing ideas on creating inspiration boards - such a generous bonus.
DECORATE is filled with soulful, creative interiors. EVERY page has something I can use, something I can incorporate, an idea that I can expand on.
This is a decorating book that I have actually READ cover to cover! It is not just filled with gorgeous inspirational photographs, but there are fabulous quotes from designers, useful room layouts, palette ideas, and tons of style ideas!
The rooms in DECORATE are not stiff and matchy matchy, or locked into a defined 'style'. This book gives room for all styles. The rooms in DECORATE look clean, crisp and purposeful. You can see the human touch behind the design. I LOVE the chalkboard wall on page 42 and the surprising purple shade on page 38, and the colorfully painted furniture on pages 118-119!
Oh, and I LOVE the fun busy flowered wallpaper and raspberry kitchen on page 124, if for nothing else than it is luscious eye candy!
Every page has a take-away, something wonderful that you can apply to your own home or your own project. This will be a wonderful book to show my clients. And I am already using it to inspire my own home!
These interiors have a feeling of being created over time. Designing a room over time, incorporating old and new, mixing in some quirky or surprising accessories, really layering the design is what sets this book apart.
I have been a big fan of Decor8, Holly's blog, and this book lives up to those high standards. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
