I am also aware that mine is a look that has spawned a thousand imitators. Yet few really tap into the essence of what I do. This book is for those who love my style, yet can't quite capture the look when they try it. I have tried to explain my golden rules of decorating, gathered from over 25 years of experience. Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of the design process. For example, Space and Function is about assessing the potential of a room before making any choices about lighting or furniture. From here on, subsequent chapters examine everything from Color and Texture, Cabinetry and Doors, to Home Furnishings and Accessories and Display.
All books are a journey and this has been a particularly interesting one. When I design, it comes straight from the heart, so it goes against the grain to sit down and analyze what I have done and why. The experience of running my own design school has helped me find ways of communicating my ideas and made me far more aware of why one idea works brilliantly and another doesn't, why some people struggle and others appear to do things effortlessly. This book is for all those who love their homes and pour their hearts into them. I know exactly how you feel.
