Product description


"The book is filled with elegant, comfortable rooms layered with Sikes’ trademark design elements — cheerful blue-and-white porcelain, wicker and rattan, and fabrics in stripes, batik, and ikat patterns."
—Papercity Magazine

"A showcase of chic ideas for every home, Sikes’s interiors are inspired by classic California living."
—The Society Diaries

"This is a book I know I will turn to again and again and I have no doubt that you will, too."
—La Dolce Vita

"Organized by color, each chapter examines Sikes' passion for certain colors . . . and demonstrates how the designer uses these colors to imbue a home's interiors with personality and style.  Alongside images of Sikes' work, there are photos of vignettes and mood boards, all of which provide the reader with ample design inspiration."

"Sharing a glimpse into his world of California cool is his first bookBeautiful: All-American Decorating and Timeless Style. . ." 
—Modern Luxury Interiors (Atlanta)

"Fall must haves." 
—La Dolce Vita

"We wrote about Mark Sikes in our prior summer issue and we continue to be inspired by his work. This is his first book—and it is a comprehensive look at his distinctive style, which derives from classic American motifs and traditions. Sikes presents ideas that are useable and adaptable for virtually any home, even if much of his aesthetic references classic California indoor/outdoor living, where he lives full time. He is an advocate for using natural fibers, choosing vivid colors, all the while remaining true to fashion as an inspiration, an arena where he began his successful career. Given his strong Hollywood connections, he had Nancy Meyers, the famed film director, write the foreword. She emphasizes that Sikes knows 'how classic can look fresh, how style and comfort go hand-in-hand'."
Milieu Magazine 

"Fall's Must Read Deisgn Books"

"Mark D. Sikes makes America Beautiful (Rizzoli) again."
Vanity Fair

"Meanwhile, his newly published first book, Beautiful: All-American Decorating and Timeless Style, has an entire chapter dedicated to — what else? — blue and white. ($37, amazon.com) 'It works with everything,' Sikes says, 'modern, eclectic, traditional.'"
House Beautiful

"The book offers a fresh take on American style."
Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles 

"Reese Witherspoon has "Beautiful" at the top of her stack"
New York Post

"Casually chic and unfussy, the applauded style of interior designer Mark D. Sikes is marked by his compositions of things with a forever appeal to make rooms livable. In Beautiful: All American Decorating and Timesless Style (Rizzoli), he chats companionably through eight chapters as he dissects his approachable style. “Blue and White Forever” features indigos, stripes, batiks and wicker found on porches and in pool houses. In 'Timeless Neutrals,' chinoiserie, gilt glass and mirrors are married compatibly with Frencg chairs and furnishings. There are happy family rooms and kitchens in the “Garden Greens” chapter and color to make you smile in 'Beautiful Brights.' Most of all, this is a book for people who like to really settle into their spaces."
360 West Magazine 

"His buzzy blog—Mark D. Sikes: Chic People, Glamorous Places, Stylish Things (markdsikes.com)—inspired the idea for his first book. Rather than organizing chapters by projects, Sikes (whose clients include Reese Witherspoon and film director Nancy Myers) grouped them around his favorite color stories, such as 'Blue and White Forever' or 'Red My Way.' It’s proof of how any type of hue can transform a room."
Serendipity Magazine
