Interior Design

Forever Beautiful: All-American Style All Year Long

Bestselling author Sikes, now the “standard bearer of great American design” (Architectural Digest), returns with a new book of fresh yet classic American decorating.

AD100 and Elle Decor A-List designer and tastemaker Sikes believes there’s beauty everywhere: all we have to do is look for it. His classic, livable looks are beloved by celebrities and notables from Reese Witherspoon to Dr. Jill Biden, who hired him to redesign her White House office.

In this third book of the Beautiful trilogy, Sikes celebrates a full year of beautiful interiors inspired by nature. Colors, patterns, and textures, including his favorite blue and white, chinoiserie, rattan, gingham, stripes, and more, came from the world outside these rooms. In twelve chapters, he shares inspiration and advice from homes he has designed across America and abroad. There is a house for every month of the year, inspired by the seasons, from April’s leafy green Gardens of Versailles–inspired French Chateau-style home outside of Chicago to crisp navy in East Hampton for June, August’s homage to the pink sands in Bermuda, and holiday reds for December’s Swiss-style chalet on a sweeping horse ranch near Sun Valley, Idaho.

Throughout, each house features Sikes’s signature touches, inspirational quotes, and tradition updated for today. With all-new light-filled photography by Amy Neunsinger, Forever Beautiful reminds new and returning readers alike of the power of making it beautiful.
