First off, Justina Blakeny has always inspired me with her Boho free-spirited, no rules lifestyle. Everyone needs this to some degree. Flipping through these pages can really brighten up a dull day. Her use of color and pattern help me expand on my own ideas, even for the most conservative client, I can always find inspiration from The New Bohemians.

I received domino The Book of Decorating on Christmas of 2008 and still refer back to its many pages of tips and advice. For anyone looking to get into interior design, this is the first book I recommend.

Behind every great designer, lies a few great design books. These are the ultimate coffee table books that I can pick up whenever for quick inspiration when I’m in a design rut. These books are my muse.

Most recently, the editors of domino magazine released domino: Your Guide to a Stylish Home which focuses on discovering your personal style and creating a space you love.

Since launching in 2005, domino has attracted a fiercely loyal following, which looks to the brand as the definitive source for decorating and style. The brand’s first book, domino: The Book of Decorating, was an immediate bestseller upon its release and has established itself as the quintessential guide to demystifying interior design. domino: Your Guide to a Stylish Home builds on the first book with a more detailed and modern perspective on how to personalize, style, and create a home you love. In a time when the flood of decorating advice and inspiration online can feel overwhelming, domino: Your Guide to a Stylish Home provides a trusted filter, using the friendly and authoritative voice of domino to teach readers about attainable, stylish design and how to make it uniquely your own.

domino: Your Guide to a Stylish Home will help readers to:

  • Identify your personal decorating style
  • Find inspiration from hundreds of beautiful, inspiring photos of real homes
  • Style the major and minor components of your home—from textiles to table settings to art
  • Shop for quality pieces that will stand the test of time
  • Learn from domino editors and tastemakers about how to style magazine-quality looks in their own spaces

The main reason I love books by Domino is because we share the same number one goal: creating a space you love.
