Inspiration Monday: Thom Filicia

I am cheap thrifty. This is why I just purchased my Thom Filicia book a few weeks ago, even though it’s been out for awhile. You can pick it up used for a song, and it’s worth every penny. That’s not to say it’s not worth full price, it’s just to say that girlfriend is broke. This was on my wishlist for quite some time, and let me tell you, I’m so glad I have it. This is one of those rare design tomes I actually READ, joining the ranks of very few designer-slash-authors whose prose compels me to read it. The group includes, but is not limited to, Billy Baldwin, Jonathan Adler and Celerie Kemble. Welcome to the club Thom – your sparkling personality shines through in your writing. Reading this book made me miss Queer Eye so much. Here’s a teaser:Love the touching tribute to his mom

He had me at “Flock of Seagulls meets The Preppy Handbook

Love these layouts and explanations – some of it reads like a Domino spread

Other parts are scrumptious, dynamic interior shots

What are you waiting for? Thom Filicia Style will bring a smile to your face and inspire you to start rearranging and revitalizing your home.

    I have heard about this book, but didn’t think much about it. This review has made me want to rush out and pick it up. Thanks for sharing!

    This book sounds very interesting, I also like the spread with the explanation of the design elements and the funny remarks. I enjoyed the use of different flooring techniques (hardwood and tile), on the examples you posted. Thank you very much for sharing, I will have to add it to my list (and thanks for thinking of the budget conscious people, you are not alone!) – Regards!

    Flooring Pro – I even brought my change to Coinstar and got an amazon gift certificate for it (when you do the gift certificates, they don’t take out a percentage). It’s a great excuse to buy a book that’s been out awhile and has dropped in price – it’s practically free, because seriously, how long were you going to let that change sit there? The key is to use said gift certificate before losing it.

    Practically free? I’m there! Thanks so much for the tips Becky.
