Chronicle Books has been a fave of mine for years. You can count on their books to include stunning photography and stylish illustrations. Recently I picked up a copy of Decorate: 1,000 Design Ideas for Every Room in Your Home and like the old saying goes, I couldn't put it down.
As the title suggests, the book is filled with top drawer advice from the world's best designers and leading decor experts including style gurus Kelly Wearstler, Amy Butler, and Jonathan Adler. The book authors are two of my favorite lifestyle writers: Holly Becker (founder of the popular design blog Decor8) and Joanna Copestick (savvy lifestyle writer of 10 stylish decor books).
Holly also offers a great blogging course called Blogging Your Way. Find out more here: decor8 e-courses.
What I liked about the book:
- Perfect mix of practical and professional tips to inspire you on your next project.
- No matter your design dilemma, this book has ideas for almost every room and every budget.
- Includes start-to-finish tips to help you spruce up or totally redo a room.
- Loaded with helpful extras including checklists, floorplans, line illustrations and even shortcuts!
Perhaps the popular lifestyle blog Apartment Therapy sums it up best:
"It's like your first pack of Starbursts - exploding with color, homes and sunshine in equal measure. "
