Overview


Making a home is a lifelong pursuit and it starts with your very first place. Suzanne and Lauren McGrath, a mother–daughter team, operate the popular blog Good Bones, Great Pieces. At the core of their philosophy is the belief that every home should have seven essential pieces that can live in almost any room and will always be stylish. The authors explain how to place iconic items of furniture like the love seat and the dresser and rotate them throughout the home as the style or need changes.
Illustrated with photographs of homes and apartments that the McGraths have designed, as well as apartments by some iconic designers, this book is a wonderful resource, whether you are starting out with your first apartment or rethinking the design of your home.

Making use of cherished family furniture and objects in combination with affordable and available pieces, the team encourages us all to be both carefree and careful in our creation of a comfortable and comforting home.” —Martha Stewart

"A must-read for first-timers and seasoned home decorators alike." – Traditional Home

“Fail-proof guides to insider sources, suggestions on how to reincarnate tired pieces of furniture, and expert weigh-ins from iconic designers like Miles Redd and Robert Couturier are the gloss on the paint.” ArchitecturalDigest.com

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The McGraths, the mother and daughter team who write the popular blog goodbonesgreatpieces.com, identify items of furniture they feel add extra flair to residential interiors: the love seat, demilune, bench, dresser, slipper chair, side table, and occasional table. With close to 200 color photographs, the McGraths justify their choices by describing the pieces' versatility—a bench can provide seating at a dining table—the use of the pieces in their own homes and residential commissions, and the color and decorative accessories to complement each piece. For each item, they offer a selection of various styles with emphasis on quality construction and timeless design. A list of resources is provided. VERDICT The decorating tips contained in this book will give amateurs an abundance of ideas for adding special touches to their decor.
