In The BNOTP Library: Getaways

This morning we toured the resort-like home of model and entertainer, Heidi Klum in this post: Tour Heidi Klum’s Beautiful Home With To-Die-For Views & Gardens  Ummm, what book from my decor library could I possibly share to follow that dreamy paradise?  I could think of only one.

Getaways by Chris Casson Madden


3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • Love the variety of “getaways” featured in the book, every kind you can imagine, all beautiful and inviting. Love seeing how they are decorated–real homes for real people.
  • Some decorating or interior design books can feel a little cold and impersonal. This book is the exact opposite. Chris takes us into the lives of the owners, sharing how they found their bit of paradise and made it their own. Many of the homes belong to well-known architects, designers, artists, TV personalities and entertainers. You’ll definitely recognize many of them including Katie Couric and Michael Keaton.
  • Pictures are beautiful, warm and intimate. I felt as if I was seeing these beautiful havens through the eyes of the owners, just as they must see them each day.

  1. This book really appeals to me, the bed on the cover looks so inviting. I feel like I am turning toward a different look and need some more inspiration. I loved watching her on HGTV. So when are you going to do giveaways on books?! Ha!

    • lol Maybe that’s something I should start! 🙂 I know what you mean, Jan…I’m love that bed and that room on the front cover, too. Sooo cozy and just makes you want to dive in and stay there all day reading and napping.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion on the book. I’m always seeking new and interesting places to visit as well as decorating inspiration.

  3. Bonjour,
