0 Reviews
Breathtaking photographs provide a rare glimpse into the private abodes of designers Sheila Bridges, Nina Campbell, Rachel Ashwell, Trish Foley, and fifteen others. Behind every stunning interior is a sure sense of personal vision; in these home designs we see exactly how the pros make their creative choices. From bungalows to city apartments, from a romantic garden house built in a weekend to artistic rooms that are always in progress, these remarkable interiors will provide endless inspiration and instruction.

"Wouldn't it be fun to peek inside the homes of home decorators'...This book offers the expected beautiful photos but also a good dose of each designer's philosophy and decorating hints."--Los Angeles Times.

"Because these women spend their lives advising people about design, the book is a virtual compendium of ideas on creating a certain look or style. There's a great deal about color, organization, storage solutions and managing details."--Baltimore Sun
