So my posting has been a bit spotty this week because quite honestly, I've been really distracted. Distracted by the great Fall book releases that is.
I spent last night reading the Domino: The Book of Decorating (by Deborah Needleman, Sara Ruffin Costello, and Dara Caponigro), and this book really could not have arrived on my doorstep at a better time. The book is chock full of practical decorating advice on color schemes, furniture, mixing and matching elements in a room, and much more. And let's face it- many times it's the practical advice that we really need. There is nothing more fun than finding design inspiration, but sometimes we just need some guidance with the actual execution part, and this book certainly helps with that.
While many of the photos in the book will be familiar to you Domino readers, there are some that seemed new to me. And while we all know that it's the details that make a room, the same can be said for books too. One great thing about the book is that there is no dust jacket, meaning you can throw the book in your bag and carry it around to the design center, the paint store, and the hardware store. I'm also crazy for the colorful interior illustrations that appear at the beginning of each chapter. It's really a nice touch.
I'm hesitant to give too much away, but let me just say that I think you're in for a real treat. Domino: The Book of Decorating is going to be a great addition to your design library.
