Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you think about decorating, you probably envision big changes, big purchases, and big costs. Interior stylist Lili Diallo has two words for you: Start small. She specializes in bringing homes alive through the details—a silvery pillow here, a floral screen there, and plenty of personality everywhere.  

  

Stylists typically transform spaces by working with pieces that are already present, and their goal is to translate the residents’ stories and passions into their surroundings. Details teaches you how to find your very own design story by focusing on which colors, textures, and objects make you feel most at home. You’ll also learn how to reimagine familiar objects and how to transform an area just by adding one key piece, such as a bright yellow rug that softens a room’s midcentury modern furniture.   

    

Inspiration streams through hundreds of stunning photos. Taking a cue from Dorothy Draper, one apartment dweller uses a classic color scheme as a starting point but adds her own original, personal touch to the space with sleek lamps and a metallic coffee table. In another home, a crystal cherry blossom chandelier and a coat of gray paint transform a small kitchen into a glamorous and soothing ice-storm scene. Glazed bowls and English country patterns set the tone in the Manhattan apartment of a die-hard gardener whose spacious terrace is a floral wonderland in the warmer months. Glimpses into the residences of fashion tastemakers and interior designers reveal how to blend finds from IKEA, eBay, flea markets, and high-end antiques stores for effortlessly quirky character. Above all, within these pages you will discover how to edit your beloved belongings and arrange a room so there’s just charm, no clutter. 

     

Equally enjoyable to read as it is to look through, Details is infused with Lili’s joie de vivre and encouragement. With hundreds of design secrets on everything from salon-style art hangings to adding the final dash of style with flowers, Details will teach you how to tap into your own inner stylist.
