In The BNOTP Library: The Well-Dressed Home

Have you ever noticed how sometimes the colors in the clothes hanging in our closets are often the very colors we feel most comfortable using when decorating our home? This book celebrates that and takes the concept even further.

In the BNOTP Library: The Well-Dressed Home: Fashionable Design Inspired by Your Personal Style
Author: Annette Tatum

The Well-Dressed Home by Annette Tatum


3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • If you’ve ever wondered what “style” your home decor falls into, this book will probably answer that for you. In Part Two, Designer Annette Tatum describes 11 different design styles. In Part III, she ties those into clothing and fabric choices and the result is fascinating.
  • I love the juxtaposition throughout the book of beautiful clothing with its counterpart in home decor. Photography is lovely!
  • This book will make you look at your home and your closet in a different way. If you’ve never been quite sure what home design style suits you best, you’ll probably have a pretty good idea after reading this book. You may actually find that it’s a mix of styles. The author covers that in this book, too!

    This might just be the book I need to figure out just WHAT is my style? I love so many different designs, it is hard to select just one. =)

    Thanks for the book review!!! I love them.

      Mary, I agree! I like so many looks and would be comfortable living in many differently styled and decorated homes. Ultimately though, the coziness of traditional style wins out for me. And since it all blends together well and looks great for years, it’s easier on the wallet as well. lol.

      • Traditional is my fave, but I love so many other looks, too. Pam, we just need a mountain cabin and a beach house so we can try them all out! 🙂

          Sign me up! Sky blue walls and lots of white furniture and accents for the beach house, and the cozy ‘lodge look’ for the mountain cabin. *Sigh* That would be heaven. 😀

    • Thanks, Mary!

  2. Looks like one wonderful read!
