Decor8 Book is Now Available

I first got to know Holly Becker many years ago when I found her website, decor8 and shared it here. We got chatting in the comments section and I wound up taking her “Blogging Your Way Class” and even writing a little bit on her site here and there. So that’s my disclaimer before I recommend her book (co-written with Joanna Copestick), Decorate: 1,000 Design Ideas for Every Room in Your Home.

You know how sometimes you order a design book online and when you get it, it’s, well, a little thin and disappointing? That is NOT the case here. This book is literally jam-packed with photographs, tips, pointers, floorplans and inspiring ideas. I don’t think I had seen at least 90% of the spaces photographed (this is rare when you look at design online all day), and they authors included spaces from L.A.’s Laurel Canyon to Paris; from Ohio to London. She’s included spaces from interior designers, bloggers, a fabric designer, photographers and even the world’s most fabulous potter. In a book this complete, nothing is missed.

Because the book is so thorough, one of the best things about it is using it one room at a time. Whether you’re planning a thrifting trip, re-arranging an art wall, doing a complete reno of your kitchen, or just want to make a few cheap moves to make your bathroom look a bit bigger, there’s a very complete section in it that you’ll find helpful. In addition, the book covers a wide variety of styles; there’s something for everyone here!

You may order the book here.

While I saw this in our Fresh New Spaces Group, I had already seen it in sfgirlbybay earlier this week. Victoria has painted her room “Gravel Gray” by Benjamin Moore (BTW, she says it’s not quite as dark or as blue as it is appearing in her photographs). She’s also sleeping on DwellStudio’s Chinoiserie bedding. Finally, she’s looking for some input on which artwork to buy for this room. Check it out and chime in on her post!

…that six old folding chairs could look SOOOOO beautiful when placed in an all white loft dining space? Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the flower arrangement looks like a MoMA-worthy work of art! Thanks so much to Danielle de Lange of The Style Files for sharing this photo on Flickr!
