Description

Create a personalized living space that reflects your fashion and style sensibilities with the help of interior designer Annette Tatum in The Well-Dressed Home. Founder of the popular and successful House and Little House lines of high-end apparel, accessories, bedding, and furniture, Tatum reveals how to draw inspiration from the fashion world, pop culture, and especially your own closet to create stunning, one-of-a-kind room designs.

Personality is key when developing your wardrobe, and the same is true when creating a unique decorating scheme for your home. The Well-Dressed Home will guide you in identifying your personal fashion style and then inspire you to use the same creative influences to design your home decor. Tatum reveals eleven of the most universal fashion styles, including romantic, couture, classic, casual, bohemian, retro, and modern, and encourages you to use the colors, fabrics, textures, and patterns characteristic of these aesthetics to decorate your home.

From an eco-bohemian chic loft in New York City to a home in the Hollywood Hills filled with vintage-romantic flea market finds, these enviable rooms will show you how to style your home to reflect your eye for fashion. Tatum understands style contradictions, too, and shows how to express them boldly and beautifully. By layering your inspirations, you can create a space that reflects your style and the styles of those with whom you share your home.

Illustrated with more than two hundred lush, full-color photographs, The Well-Dressed Home is the perfect resource for fashion enthusiasts looking to infuse a sense of their personal style into their homes.
