Overview

Randy Florke--a Country Living contributor who has also been featured in the New York Times and on the Today show--presents the most accessible (and easiest) decorating primer ever created. His beautiful and affordable heartland sensibility, which he refers to as "anti keeping up with the Joneses," is irresistible.

Interior decorator and Country Living contributing editor Randy Florke hails from Iowa-and his inviting design style captures the warmth and homey appeal of heartland America. Every beautiful color photograph here presents real-life examples of rooms that radiate charm and practically invite readers to step inside and make themselves at home. Using a friendly, personal approach, Florke explores what he calls the "three muses" of design: comfort, economy, and color. Comfort resides in line-dried quilts and overstuffed sofas. Economy means items chosen from flea markets, thrift stores, or grandmother's attic. Country color is the faded blue of crockery and the pale shades of damask tablecloths. Anyone hoping to transform a home from ordinary to extraordinary will find thrifty and stylish ways to design. A Selection of the Homestyle Book Club.

Having traveled the world as a model, Randy Florke takes great pleasure in mixing his far-flung influences with those from his boyhood days on a Midwestern farm. His busy life includes a growing family and homes in New York City, Larrabee, Iowa and Sullivan County, New York.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Interior decorator Randy Florke lives in New York City, but this Iowa native knows about the simple pleasures of relaxed country living. In this "anti–keeping up with the Joneses" primer, he explains how you can create the warm and homey feel of heartland America in your own home. With words and radiant color pictures, he explains "the three muses" of design: economy, comfort, and color. His ideas are refreshingly innovative. He explains how to spot items at flea markets, thrift shops, and granny's attic, and describes the virtues of faded country colors.
