This New York Times bestselling book from interior designer Mark D. Sikes is a celebration of American style today, showcasing chic and accessible ideas for every home. Modern and unfussy, Mark D. Sikes s interiors are classic takes on California indoor/outdoor living, with natural fibers and crisp coloration, informed and influenced by the fashion world where he began his career. In eight chapters, he explores approachable, stylish looks, from "Blue and White Forever," which features indigos, stripes, batiks, and wicker in casual rooms such as porches and pool houses; to "Timeless Neutrals," presenting semiformal rooms filled with chinoiserie, gilt, glass, mirrors, banquettes, and French chairs; to "Garden Greens," featuring happy, casual family rooms and kitchens inspired by the garden with treillage woodwork, rattan, and cotton. There are also "Beautiful Brights," colorful rooms that are eclectic, layered, and fun, with chintz, florals, and Middle Eastern influences; and "Sun Faded Hues," rustic coastal rooms with weathered fabrics and furniture. Each chapter presents light-filled images of the designer s looks and offers the reader inspiration and advice. As famed film director Nancy Meyers writes in the book s foreword, this is a book that shows design lovers "how classic can look fresh, how style and comfort go hand-in-hand."

When Mark Hampton's On Decorating was published in 1989, it immediately became a touchstone for professional and amateur decorators, as well as the passionate audience of lifestyle bloggers and journalists. Decades later, it has endured as an iconic book--beloved, emulated, and referred to. Preserved in the original design with its eighties charm, Mark Hampton's witty essays--urging us to overcome our fear of strong color, or recalling how a room's bright green energized him so much as a seven-year-old boy that he tore up a pillow, then used the hue in several of his most acclaimed rooms as an adult--will raise a smile as he informs us with lessons that still hold magnificently true today. With his remarkably immediate voice, a new foreword from his daughter Alexa, and the same special package as the original publication, this reprint edition will feel like a must-have for bedside reading with a cup of tea or for proud display in the living room.
