This New York Times bestselling book from interior designer Mark D. Sikes is a celebration of American style today, showcasing chic and accessible ideas for every home. Modern and unfussy, Mark D. Sikes s interiors are classic takes on California indoor/outdoor living, with natural fibers and crisp coloration, informed and influenced by the fashion world where he began his career. In eight chapters, he explores approachable, stylish looks, from "Blue and White Forever," which features indigos, stripes, batiks, and wicker in casual rooms such as porches and pool houses; to "Timeless Neutrals," presenting semiformal rooms filled with chinoiserie, gilt, glass, mirrors, banquettes, and French chairs; to "Garden Greens," featuring happy, casual family rooms and kitchens inspired by the garden with treillage woodwork, rattan, and cotton. There are also "Beautiful Brights," colorful rooms that are eclectic, layered, and fun, with chintz, florals, and Middle Eastern influences; and "Sun Faded Hues," rustic coastal rooms with weathered fabrics and furniture. Each chapter presents light-filled images of the designer s looks and offers the reader inspiration and advice. As famed film director Nancy Meyers writes in the book s foreword, this is a book that shows design lovers "how classic can look fresh, how style and comfort go hand-in-hand."

This book will appeal to interior design lovers who bought Suzanne Kasler and The Welcoming House, it is an appealing approach to creating fresh interiors rooted in warmth and comfort. Leading Southern interior designer Amelia Handegan is known for her sophisticated eclectic interiors and for her restoration of nationally recognized historic houses. Like the legendary Albert Hadley, Handegan fearlessly embraces a mix of Old World elements, such as antiques, wall murals, luxurious fabrics and passementerie, and stenciled floors, with modern furnishings and well-chosen cultural objects, such as vibrant hand-woven textiles and carved deities. Several artfully designed homes are profiled, including a colorful beach cottage on Folly Island, South Carolina, a rustic cabin in the Blue Ridge Mountains, an apartment in a 1920s neoclassical revivalist style in Charleston, South Carolina, and Rose Hill, a refurbished eighteenth-century Virginian plantation house. These rooms illustrate her painterly sensibility, quiet drama, and artisanal touches. Beautifully photographed, this book is a must-have for interior design and historic architecture enthusiasts.
