After opening the cover of Decorate Fearlessly, every page I turned was like opening a precious jewel box. Filled with rooms from many designers we know so well and also many whose work I was unaware of until now, I was amazed at the scope of this project!
|A stunning work of art, "Seven Horses" by Jean de Merry is the soul of this former ballroom in a Beaux Arts mansion in Pacific Heights. Jeffrey De Sousa envelopes us in deep indigo and splashes of orange to complement the rich floors.|
|In Marian McEvoy's own home in Hudson Valley, she not only did the decor, she personally created the lampshades, curtains and trims. She keeps the room light with a white painted beams, a lacquer mirror and andirons|
|A huge tropical mural turns this green, coral and gold bedroom into a tropical retreat year round. Designers Kate McIntyre and Brad Huntzinger work this magical illusion without overpowering the room, by adding several delicate touches.|
About the author: Susanna is one of those Renaissance women who can accomplish anything she sets her mind to. She helped launch Elle Decor Magazine as the Interior Design Manager, later becoming Special Projects Manager at House and Garden.
She is now the author of seven spectacular books, as well as a regular contributor to 1st Dibs, writing features on some of the world's most renowned tastemakers.
This past year or so I have come to know Susanna even more through the lifestyle videos she presents with Stacey Holston Bewkes through Stacey's blog site Quintessence. (One of my favorites is Designers and their Dogs) Find the links to Susanna's accomplishments, videos, etc at her site Susanna Salk.
Please purchase Decorate Fearlessly as it is an incredible addition to your design library. You will enjoy it tremendously!
