Front Cover
ABRAMS, Sep 1, 2012 - House & Home - 208 pages
“An excellent and useful book for both beginners and more experienced home decorators... Encourages us all to be both carefree and careful” (Martha Stewart).

Making a home is a lifelong pursuit and it starts with your very first place. Suzanne and Lauren McGrath, a mother-daughter team, operate the popular blog Good Bones, Great Pieces. At the core of their philosophy is the belief that every home should have seven essential pieces that can live in almost any room and will always be stylish. The authors explain how to place iconic items of furniture like the love seat and the dresser and rotate them throughout the home as the style or need changes. Illustrated with photographs of homes and apartments that the McGraths have designed, as well as apartments by some iconic designers, this book is a wonderful resource, whether you are starting out with your first apartment or rethinking the design of your home.

“A must-read for first-timers and seasoned home decorators alike.” —Traditional Home
