“Lisa Borgnes Giramonti had families from books in mind when researching Novel Interiors: Living in Enchanted Rooms Inspired by Literature. Scouting homes in Southern California, Manhattan and New Jersey, she found details evoking British moors and New England cottages.” –The New York Times
“Conversational, illuminating and full of practical tips for discovering your own design style, Lisa Borgnes Giramonti’s easy-to-digest book matches rooms from the likes of decorator Schuyler Samperton with richly detailed descriptions of interiors found in more than 60 novels, from Jane Austen’s Emma to Dodie Smith’s “I Capture the Castle.” –The Wall Street Journal
"When it comes to gathering inspiration for a decorating project, there are tried-and-true techniques: culling fabric swatches, tearing pages from magazines, trolling Pinterest, and earmarking furniture catalogues. And there are the more unconventional methods, such as sifting through over 60 classic novels and finding modern homes that match the aesthetic described-down to the last chintz flower." -Architectural Digest
