Overview

In celebration of the 100th anniversary of House & Garden, this fully illustrated book presents important contemporary decorating trends in stunning homes.

From one-room makeovers to complete renovations, home-decorating projects are flourishing across the country. House & Garden Book of Style explores seven of today's most popular looks, including the rustic charm of Country Luxe, the urban sophistication of New International, and the cross-cultural eclecticism of Bohemian Chic. Interweaving the stories of homeowners and the insights of professional decorators, each chapter features full-color pictures of four to six residences that typify the style, and the do's and don'ts of getting a style right.

The first book from House & Garden in more than 15 years, this is an irresistible combination of inspiration, innovative ideas, and practical know-how.

Dominique Browning is the editor-in-chief of House & Garden, which has been one of the premier shelter magazines for one hundred years. She lives in New York City.

Publishers Weekly
Dominique Browning and the editors of House & Garden magazine celebrate the 100th anniversary of their shelter publication with House & Garden Book of Style, featuring contemporary trends. The magazine has documented traditional design and charted the progress of the essential elements of style "form, color, line, proportion, scale, texture, pattern, and material." Grouped according to updated classics, new international, country luxe, minimalism, bohemian chic, grand tour, and midcentury modern, the trends explored here are splendidly illustrated by the 250 full-color photos covering the breadth of possibilities.
