9780307884909: American Beauty: Renovating and Decorating a Beloved Retreat

For the wide audience who adores television, print, and product-designing media darling and star decorator Thom Filicia's new American style, and for anyone who has ever dreamed of creating her own retreat, this is both a deeply felt story of true house love and a decorating book brimming with beauty.

Thom Filicia wasn't looking for another escape from his busy city life. But when visiting New York’s Finger Lakes, a place he loved as a child, he fell madly in love with a fixer-upper. Two years and one careful, respectful, and impassioned renovation later, it has become the house of his dreams--one that profoundly speaks to his happy memories of lazy days spent on the lake or in the town of Skaneateles.
 
With more than 300 stunning photographs,  American Beauty is the story of this house, and an inspiration resource that imparts Thom's extensive wisdom on creating rooms that feel modern yet meaningful and classic.

About the Author:

From his start at renowned design firms, including Parish-Hadley, THOM FILICIA launched his acclaimed enterprise, Thom Filicia Inc., and has emerged as one of today’s most influential and respected interior designers. His clients have ranged from Tina Fey, Jennifer Lopez, and Peter Jennings to those in the worlds of finance, sports, and hospitality. Gaining fame on the Emmy-winning Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Style Network, and HGTV, he is a bestselling author and has been praised as a “Top 100 Designer” by House Beautiful and an “A-List” designer by Elle Décor. He is also the driving force behind the Thom Filicia Home Collection.

Review:

“Thom Filicia proves that small town and high style can meet. His story of transforming a derelict house in a classic Finger Lakes resort community as charming as it is inspiring. The book is full of practical renovation advice and decorating wisdom, but, even better, it’s got heart. What’s impressive is not only what he does, but why, and Filicia’s deep love of this house—and this town—is clear on every page.” –Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief, Elle Décor

“What’s more at the heart of the American dream than the ability to make over something? Thom has not only renovated a house into a real beauty—full of decorating inspiration—he’s shown us how a well-designed house can be the foundation for a wonderful life.”—Newell Turner, Editor in Chief, House Beautiful
