    A must read for anyone remotely interested in interior decorating!

    I won Designers Here and There via an Internet giveaway. I absolutely love this book!

    Exquisite images and colorful words grace every page of Michele Keith's book. She opens the doors to the homes of some of the most coveted decorators, providing readers with a glimpse of tasteful decor and personal design preferences of said artists.

    From luxury to comfort, colorful to neutral, West Coast to East Coast, apartments to mansions and everything in between, Keith takes readers on a tour of nearly forty personal residences. The images, combined with a refreshing narrative, portray each designer's distinct individuality and zest for life.

    With subtle creative decor ideas and expert testimony into translating personality into a place to call home, Keith's book is a must read. One need not be a professional in the interior design and architecture industries to enjoy this book. You will walk away feeling inspired to cultivate your own personal space and educate yourself on the ins and outs of impeccable design.

    Inspiring and Fun

    It was surprising to see how designers decorate for themselves and read about it in this beautiful and readable no nonsense book.
    The book is down to earth and yet sophisticated. It inspired me to try some new things in my loft and I'll pick it up from time to time to get even more ideas.
    One of the fun and helpful comments was "Don't be too much of a neatnik or your home will lack soul and feel sterile."
    I highly recommend the book for personal reading, gift giving and a fresh start on every season!

    This is a beautiful book in every way

    Michele Keith has put together one of the best Designer books in many, many years. It is wonderfully photographed and the detail of her work provides a very interesting read. Its very rare to get an inside view into amazing homes and properties like the ones Michele has in her book.
    This is going into my permanent Library in each of my homes.
