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.

What People are Saying About This

"I can't imagine anyone who has more fun at work than the dashing, devil-may-care decorator Thom Filicia -- and he brings that passion to the pages of Thom Filicia Style, the go-to guide to navigating the world of design. With indispensable information, expert tips, lush photos, and a wicked wit, he takes you on a no-nonsense journey whose destination is a confident new look for your home."
-- Margaret Russell, editor in chief, Elle Decor

"Thom Filicia is a genius, effortlessly mixing materials and eras to create spaces that are both hypersophisticated and extremely livable. Somehow, he never loses sight of the human being amid all that fabulous furniture and fabric. So yeah, this book is drop-dead gorgeous, but it's also warm, friendly, and down-to-earth -- just like its author. Finally, a designer book that truly demystifies the process for us mere mortals."
-- Sara Gray Miller, editor in chief, O at Home

"From apprenticing with legendary designer Albert Hadley to finding television celebrity, Thom has mastered his own brand of eclectic, organic, American-chic -- and is generously willing to help a broader audience experience, live with, and love design, too. His first book is not only a visual treat but also a friendly, easy-to-navigate guide crammed with useful tips, from 'every room needs a surprise' to 'lose the matchy matchy-ness.'"
-- Cindy Allen, editor in chief, Interior Design

"Thom Filicia is like a superhero of style. He crusades against the scourge of bad taste by empowering regular citizens to look within themselves and embrace their inner decorator. His delicious new book spreads the gospel according to Thom: Don't Worry, Be Fabulous!"
-- Mayer Rus, design editor, Los Angeles Times Magazine

"An insider who's invited everyone to the party, Thom has created a book that's part luscious page-turner, part hilarious autobiography, and crazily useful. I don't know if I want to keep it on the coffee table, bedside table, or in the design library, but I do know I want to keep it."
-- Sara Ruffin Costello, creative director, Domino

"Thom is a total inspiration to me! The fact that he could think on his feet with such brilliance and accessible practicality on the groundbreaking Queer Eye for the Straight Guy was a revelation to me. To be able to see a diamond in the rough the way Thom does with forlorn rooms is sheer magic. Beyond that, Thom is about the nicest guy you will ever meet. He is brimming with enthusiasm and talent, with a fresh, elegant eye, and this book illustrates how far that goes. This book will be invaluable for anyone who cares about design and how it can actually empower your life."
-- Wendy Goodman, design editor, New York

"In this spirited, droll, and informative romp through his career, work, and design philosophy, Thom Filicia shares with readers his inspirations and his pragmatic solutions for creating environments as suave and engaging as himself."
-- Hamish Bowles, editor at large, Vogue Living

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.
