Great looking book! I am waiting for mine to arrive via amazon... hopefully some good inspiration and ideas to 'borrow'.

Thanks for the tipoff. This one was not on my radar. Does the writing suck? Because 95% of the time it does in interior design books, not that I bother to read the text most of the time.

I do think your blog lost a little something when you had to do comment mod but I understand. I'm not sure I'm going to allow anons anymore. It's too easy to be the man behind the curtain and be an asshole.

Anyway, I love, love, love this book and intend to do a post on it after parade season. :-) Do you have it? I bought it with a Christmas gift card and a large coupon.

Sorry you're dealing with a *hater* but that's how you know you made it! Going out to take a look at this eye candy right now at Books and Books for breakfast! Thanks for the heads up =]

I own Domestic Art and it's already becoming one of my favorite books. I've been recommending it to everyone!

Happy New Year!

Trust me, your blog has never lost a little anything.

It looks so good. I really want a total home redo right about now.

This is not related to what I'm sure is a lovely book, but relevant. I'm not sure if anyone else noticed the 4th or so comment on The Homies voting page, by newyearishere?

This person states his/her reason for not voting Decorno as "Decorno is too hard and nonspecific." Is that hilarious, or is it just me? Does the poor commenter mean that you are too hard as in too complex, difficult to understand because you use big words? Or does he/she mean that you are *hard* as in one cold-ass gangsta? Either way, priceless.

Obviously, I voted for you. I tend to like big words and/or hard muthafuckas.

A true classic. This is my go-to gift for design friends. Beautiful and inspiring interiors that are acquired. Soulful. Also, the new Bilhuber book. He is a master at combining fabrics. PS Decorno...don't worry about those ANON posts. What a coward. Mean, too.

An Aesthete's Lament said...

It is a fabulous book. And the writing is good too.

Gorgeous!
I agree with Becky, though, that most of the writing in coffee table books is terrible and badly edited. Have you ever tried to read "Bright Young Things?"

Decs said...

Bright Young Things is so ESL. It's notoriously bad, isn't it?

With the many hours I waste away at bookstores, I can't beleive I have never looked though this book- its a gem! Thanks for the recommendation!!!
