Thom Filicia Style: Inspired Ideas for Creating Rooms You'll Love by Thom Filicia

 
"I'm a democratic design snob. I see it as my mission to help stamp out boring, unimaginative interiors. But I also love people, having fun, and what I do for a living. I think a fabulously styled place is achievable by everyone. Think of me as your decorating wingman."

Thom Filicia, whose one-of-a-kind makeover genius gained national attention through his starring roles on Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and Dress My Nest, offers the ultimate handbook for creating gorgeous interiors that showcase your unique personal style. Those who have witnessed Thom's remarkable makeovers on television already know about the much-anticipated reveal moment when the emotionally overwhelmed homeowners are struck speechless by the miracle he has created. The same miracle is now possible for your home, with the secrets and tips contained in Thom Filicia Style.

With his trademark wit and friendly voice, Thom deconstructs how he works his magic and provides pages of invaluable advice, inspiration, before-and-after photos, case studies, floor plans, and product information. His approach will help you elevate your personal aesthetic by strategizing the best ways to make the most out of every space. From his work on a Manhattan loft to a suburban family home, Thom brings a fresh and invigorating vision to the way we live -- a vision that can apply to homes and decorating budgets of any size.

Demystifying the decorating process one step at a time, Thom has filled this guide with everything you need to create the perfect interior. Thom Filicia Style is like having the designer himself on hand to take care of all the details.

About the Author

Thom Filicia, since gaining fame as the quick-witted and charming interior designer on the Emmy-winning television hit Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, has emerged as one of today's most influential and respected interior designers. Host of the Style Network's top-rated show, Dress My Nest, Thom's projects and ideas have been featured everywhere -- from The Oprah Winfrey Show to The New York Times, from Elle Decor to W, and from House Beautiful to InStyle.

Before being catapulted into the national spotlight, Thom established himself as a major player in the design industry through his day-to-day work. After earning his B.A. in design from the prestigious School of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University, he joined Parish-Hadley, one of the country's most distinguished interior design firms. He then worked for renowned designer Jeffrey Bilhuber before founding Thom Filicia, Inc., in 1998. He was named one of House & Garden's Top 50 Tastemakers, one of House Beautiful's Top 100 American Designers, and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Art Direction for his work on Queer Eye. Thom's far-ranging commissions have included everything from designing the tents for the Olympus Fashion Week, to the W Hotels in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Atlanta, and to the United States VIP Suite at the World's Fair in Aichi, Japan.

Okay, I will be first to admit that I could never pull off anything that resembles his style, and my husband would throw a fit if I tried. That aside, this is one of my absolute favorite design books ever!!! I found something in every room that spoke to me and influenced my final interior design decisions. His tips (in the process chapter) were extremely helpful in identifying what I needed to consider purchasing to go with what I already had: what elements were missing from each room and possible ways to pull them into my vision. If you are remodeling, seriously consider purchasing this book: you won't regret it.
