Written by Corey Damen Jenkins, Foreword by Jamie Drake
The first book from Elle Decor A-List interior designer Corey Damen Jenkins, known for his colorful, youthful traditionalism.
Corey Damen Jenkins's bold interiors have won a devoted following. In his first book, he presents his take on classic interiors that have been beautifully reimagined for today's taste, sharing the building blocks of this fun, vibrant traditional look. "Bold Standard" is about how to use color in unexpected ways. "Good Bones" showcases architectural details. "Less Is More" focuses on creating a minimal look within a traditional interior. "Eclectic Exuberance" celebrates a collected appeal. "Night and Day" is a new look at the classic, graphic pairing of dark and light colors. "Haute House" looks at accessorizing with fashion-inspired elements. "Playful Spaces" is about creating rooms that cater to lounging, and nesting: kids' bedrooms, family rooms, reading nooks, homework areas. With sidebars on practical questions such as how to hang a salon-style picture wall and choosing the right window treatment, this is a must-have book for fans of a fresh, traditional look.
