Southern Living Magazine has recently published Southern Living Style, a step-by-step decorating guide featuring tours of great Southern homes and accessible design ideas.
The approach reminds me a lot of Domino’s Book of Decorating so if you liked the layout and presentation of that book, you’re sure to like this one.
Practical tips from designers show you how to infuse Southern style in your own homes, taking into consideration your budget and your personal style.
There are pointers for incorporating traditional icons in new ways, updating vintage pieces, and identifying individual style.
There are also solutions for design dilemmas from top Southern designers,Â a resource list of the editorsâ€™ favorite designers and retailers and my favorite feature: piece-by-piece deconstruction of rooms that show you why the spaces work.
Southern Living Style strikes the right balance of inspiration and useful advice and is a great resource for designers – even if you’re not a Southerner. It is available at Amazon.
