IN HOUSE- a must have for YOUR House


.

When I heard about the book IN HOUSE- soon to be released title from Mitchell Owens- I closed my eyes, clicked my heels together three times and said There's no Place like Home-then I rushed to preorder- and will continue to repeat my mantra every day until that book arrives here in my own home.

Go order, get a first edition, I can play around because- I've preordered several copies-How many? I won't divulge.








but I do want my readers and my design clients to get IN HOUSE -You often ask "what are he best design books to buy?" Here It Is.

If you don't know the name- Where have you been?-&- You will. The pairing of Mitchell Owens, writer- Elle Decor, Nest, Architectural Design, the NYTimes, and the TIMES Magazine (my favorite is Pauline on My Mind here & do see the links below to more of them) & editor- JANSEN, ELSIE DE WOLFE-The Birth of the Modern Interior WITH legendary interiors photographer Derry Moore-who just happens to be the 12 Earl of Drogheda, makes This book THE book of the year.


& Oh goodie! from the Book's graphic designer Johnathan Barnbrook here- find a sneak peak on his <>

" Richly diverse in style and period, what these extraordinary interiors share is an eccentricity and a commitment to decorative aesthetics that has singled them out in the eyes of the world’s most discerning arbiters of taste. From an airy and colorful Moroccan palace to an austere but whimsical Scottish castle; from an Art Deco masterpiece in Jodhpur to Alphonse Mucha’s cluttered apartment in Prague; and from the museumlike home of one of London’s most macabre collectors to the extravagant remnants of Madrid’s aristocratic heritage... from Rizzoli IN HOUSE publisher & Amazon where You can pre-Order here.

  3. You evil woman..I've pre-ordered it. Slightly OT...love that oval painting you have hung in "glimpse of my work". Really into that method of hanging art. Realize you're dealing with logistics of layering it on a mirror...but its a baronial "don't want to get holes in the midst of my boiserie" look. Any tome about antique portrait hanging techniques out there? Trish

  4. Yes, very excited about this. And I too would buy a mess of goat for my girls if i had the room and were not racing from one side of the seaboard to the other all the time. Well done all around!

  5. My cart waits to serve up this delicious book. I am such a ninny about not knowing about Derry Moore. The In Search of a Good LIfe Blog set me straight into research mode. Holy Cow! The gods have gathered their wagons here and we are in for a treat from this uber talented duet. This is like the Christmas when you got exactly what you wanted when you didn't even know you wanted it! Writing from Kansas, no tornado nor unfortunately red shoes, in sight.

  6. Trish, Can't wait for this book! I love OT- You are the first person that has commented on any of these pics- I think they are pretty good. That small oval painting is 1772 of an Eliza Boice (at 16) Belfast. Love portraits and this one is simply hung off a small cup hook(ouch) Into the mirror-there are larger pics in the Archives- It would be great to do a HOW to- I however consider nothing sacred and just get the hammer out.

  7. Blushing- I couldn't agree more- and as to goats, I would have them for myself, along with a few sheep -that crook I have is going begging in the corner. How about pink dyed goats to match the room- Heavenly and photo worthy. GT

  8. Home- Do you love the Wizard as much as I do? and you are right there! The book will be great- did you see the beautiful borders around the words in the sneak peak from the graphic designer. The layout looks beautiful-and just what you like Words with pics. GT

  9. As a fan of Dorothy this book is one to wish for. I can see it now. The great wizard Owens, Little Augury as Dorothy and Home before dark as Glenda.

  10. I can't wait to see this. I discovered Derry Moore a year or so ago, when I found "Englishwoman's House" at the Book Thing.

    And Mitch Owens? He's my idol.

  13. A comfortable noachian age is the prize of a well-spent youth. Rather than of its bringing wretched and low prospects of decay, it would sing us hopes of unwavering stripling in a recovered world.
