The perfect follow-up to Mary Gilliatt's Complete Room by Room Decorating Guide, this book takes readers through all the steps needed to decorate anything from a whole house down to one room, cleanly and basically with not only confidence and style, but heart and soul. Gilliatt takes homeowners through an entire house, helping them to consider what it is that makes them comfortable—both physically and emotionally—and considering all five senses: touch, sight, taste, hearing, and smell. Topics range from darkness when sleeping and quiet spaces for reading or resting, to comforts of different family members, flea market finds, and family heirlooms. Gilliatt shows homeowners how to find sanctuary in their homes whether they are spending time relaxing, entertaining, being with family or pets, doing hobbies, cooking and eating, reading, or any of the other activities that go into their daily life.

From Booklist:

Comfort and style can be highly compatible--not to mention colorful and vibrant-- as interior designer Gilliatt illustrates in this handsome collection of home interiors that focus on integrating comfort with great style. She takes the reader step-by-step from the entry hall through traditional rooms of the home, advising on space, color, light, scent, and sound to balance her dual concerns for style and comfort. Recognizing the increasing commonality of the workspace in modern homes, she offers advice on and illustration of how these spaces too can be decorated with an eye toward comfort and style. The dual-purpose office sections, coupled with a section on organizing workspace, should be welcome information for those who work at home. She includes an excellent section on domestic libraries, discussing every element--bookshelves, lighting, color, walls, accessories, and so on. The book not only includes functional advice and suggestions but also is filled with beautiful photographs that reflect the integration of style and comfort that makes even a casual perusal delightful.
