Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
In her first book, interior designer Meg Braff presents the building blocks of a pretty, polished home. Everyone wants a house that is filled with grace and charm. Classic yet cheerful, Meg Braff's style has a formality that is never studied, an elegance that is approachable and pretty. In seven chapters that cover the basics of her look, Braff shares advice on creating rooms that are both livable and attractive. In the first two chapters, she explores the key elements of her look--color and pattern--and how to employ them for maximum impact in your home. She discusses the essential elements of stylish bedrooms (hint: bring back the dressing table), explores the fundamentals of inviting baths and breakfast rooms, and gives tips on making chic outdoor spaces. Finally, Braff explains the importance of finishing touches, the little extras that elevate a room's decor from good to great. All of her advice comes together in an overall theme of gracious living that will be warmly welcomed by readers looking to impart polish, color, and grace to their home. Lushly illustrated with vivid images of Braff 's lively work, The Decorated Home is an inspiring, idea-filled resource that readers will turn to again and again. "Think Slim Aarons meets Technicolor elegance."
