Interior Design

Everyday Decorating

Jeffrey Bilhuber, one of the most sought-after voices in interior design, offers practical advice and easy-to-follow tips that inspire and empower the reader to make enlightened design decisions.

Jeffrey Bilhuber has created the ultimate decorating handbook for those who love to go to Instagram or Pinterest for inspiration and design knowledge. Kicking aside the standard interior decorator format of showcasing work house by house, the book is divided into chapters that illustrate how to make your home more comfortable, happy, colorful, personal, lighter and brighter, sexy, charming, and cozy. Using iconic images spanning the breadth of his illustrious career, each page sings with a practical takeaway that leaves the reader thinking, "Well, I never thought of it like that."

Bilhuber's classically informed point of view mixed with his tell-it-like-it-is humor make for memorable tips that will prove valuable the next time you're shopping for a sofa, making a bed, or considering paint colors. From sleek city townhouses to rambling country manors, he's found that ultimately all clients have the same goals regardless of interests, budget, or location. Those clients have included bold-face names like Anna Wintour, Iman, Mariska Hargitay, and Elsa Peretti. And the same advice he shared with them, he now shares with you.

"Though few of us may admit it, many of the design ideas we have for our own homes originate with images we see on Instagram or Pinterest or, better yet, in the pages of our very own magazine, Milieu. Jeffrey Bilhuber may be one of America’s most important interior designers, but he, too, admits to finding ideas on line and in print. In his new book, he provides readers with hands-on, practical advice about how to make your home into the home you want. He wants you—as indicated by his chapters—to be happy, charmed, and cozy at home. He shows us how."—MILIEU MAGAZINE
