Read an Excerpt
Charles Faudree Home gives me the opportunity to share more of my designs and explore in detail what I’ve learned through the years about the ingredients of a home and its place in our lives. What is home? What makes it special? What makes it truly yours? These are the questions that make my life so interesting. Everyone has a different definition, and as a decorator it’s my job to help people find their perfect answer.
Over the years there has been a shift in the basic requirements for a home. Twenty years ago people wanted a good bar; now they want security and a simpler lifestyle. Transitional style with its pared-down design is a response to this change in preference. I respond to the idea of paring down, too, but I like my simpler life to include my favorite collections and a great mix of fabric and furniture.
On a practical level, individual needs vary widely, and those needs have to be fulfilled by the home’s design. People use their rooms differently. Some people want to be able to eat in every room in the house. Some want to do jigsaw puzzles in a certain room and some want a piano. A lady with a spectacular collection of scarves must have a closet that is designed to accommodate them.

Excellent examples of Charles Faudree's work. Would have liked to hear more from Charles in the text; however, I loved the book and would highly recommend.
