This book was suggested by a reader of BNOTP earlier this year. After checking it out and reading the reviews, I ordered it. It’s by Editors at Southern Living Magazine so I knew it was going to be filled with beautiful rooms!
In the BNOTP Library: Southern Living Style
Author: Editors of Southern Living Magazine
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- This is definitely a “how-to-decorate” book. It’s filled with pictures of beautiful rooms, but it’s also filled with lots of tips and information about how to decorate a home. If I knew someone who was had just purchased their first home, this would the perfect book to give them because it really breaks down the process of designing rooms that look and feel beautiful, yet completely livable.
- I want to create the bed on page 121…to-die-for! The rooms depicted in this book vary from elegant to casual and everything in between. None feel stuffy or pretentious, just real rooms where real people live.
- If you love color, there’s lot of that in Southern Living Style. Every room or space is depicted with lots of tips and ideas…from bedrooms to offices to you-name-it. There are some great repurposing and inspiring “Before and Afters” toward the end of the book. They cover a lot of decorating trends and styles, so it’s definitely a book that speaks to way we live today. But there’s plenty of traditional, classic design to satisfy folks like me. There’s a nice mix of modern with traditional throughout.
