Amazon: THE WAY HOME by Jeffrey Bilhuber
Jeffrey Bilhuber offers a look into intimate rooms fitting for today. Jeffrey Bilhuber, the decorator of choice for the creative elite–including fashion editors, designers, and musicians–presents his most recent projects, all of which exemplify the hallmarks of his inimitable style: flashpoints of inspiration from the past that embrace tradition while being rooted in the way we live today. Perhaps like no other contemporary decorator, Bilhuber has been a barometer of change, and this book marks a new, more relaxed evolution of his style. In this beautifully photographed book, Bilhuber shows that high style can (and should) encompass effortless comfort-interiors where families big or small can take pleasure in easy spaces that are brilliant amalgams of new and old. Every house tells a charming story of the family that inhabits it, and each room expertly showcases Bilhuber’s signature touches-a novel use of color (from vibrant palettes to more muted ones) and consummate attention to detail, with every element of a room attended to. Featuring projects from around the country–from urban townhouses and lofts to oceanfront cottages and country estates–Bilhuber’s work appeals to a wide range of tastes as he encourages every reader to embrace their unique vision to create cozy spaces as deeply personal as they are practical.
