I love this book! I just picked it up the other day while at Barnes and Noble. This is Carolyn Westbrook's book on her own home. In the introduction she says, "This is not another "Hollywood" decorating book, where everything is staged with pictures of other people's homes and borrowed children. This is my family, my home, and my way of life that I am sharing with you. It is here that two generations live together under the same roof, just as families did years ago." Carolyn has a a line of slipcovers and accessories. Click here for her website, http://www.carolynwestbrookhome.com/index.php . EDIT: Deborah left a comment on the cost of the book at Amazon.. There must have been an error. I just checked and at Amazon it is currently on sale for $10.17, plus shipping :-)
What I love about this book is....everything! I love that she has a room, like the one of the cover that is all white and shabby, but she also has rooms that are red! She has painted furniture and beautiful non painted furniture. It is how I am trying to decorate my home...
Here is the cover (click on any picture to enlarge)
The Red Room.....
Blue and red transferware mixed and used together....I love this idea so much, I borrowed it!
These last two pictures are MY red and blue transferware in my kitchen hutch.
Do you have a favorite decorating book? I would love to hear about it :-)
