Product description


"THERE'S ONLY ONE persuasive reason to hang a nutso, ship-shaped chandelier in a living room, as designer Jonathan Adler did: Because you can. For Susanna Salk, author of Decorate Fearlessly, a new book packed with anti-generic spaces like Mr. Adler's, truly memorable décor is not guided by rationale. "I soon understood," she wrote of her research process, "that every great room—no matter how grand or humble—exudes whimsy." You'll want to brace yourself before you flip through this exceedingly exuberant volume. Entire geese adorn walls. Disco mirrors invade kitchens. Patterns that you'd think would not even be on speaking terms riskily coexist. But if you're craving something to jolt your home out of the zzzzzzz zone, look no further." -Wall Street Journal

"Through a trove of mesmerizing rooms and encouraging commentary, she proves her liberating point—if you choose pieces, colors, and prints that you love, then, magic will follow." -House Beautiful

"Well, it’s ABOUT TIME that somebody did a book like this. This beautiful book delivers a photographic trove of fabulously designed rooms by über talented designers. This inspirational how-to decorate book is as much about creating a great room (no matter the budget) as it is a state of mind.  With this, Salk touches on something that should be deeply considered if not already experienced… the effect that quality design can have on your quality of life… and the notion that your home should reflect and inspire YOU. She shares rule- breaking design ideas that celebrate whimsy and personal style over predictable, safe looks. Page after page will enthuse you...every page is a visual delight. Beautify your cocktail table with this gem; I highly recommend it to be read and reread- often." -Courtney Price

"Thrilled. The book inspires readers to make bold choices to create spaces they love..." - At Home in Arkansas

“…sure to spur countless makeovers. Filled with inspiring interiors by everyone from Jonathan Adler to Matchbook’s own Jane Lilly Warren, the book takes us on a room-by-room journey of homes that celebrate bold uses of color and pattern.” –Matchbook Magazine

“…Salk has assembled the work of 83 design luminaries to offer readers a wealth of decorating inspiration — from modern to traditional, casual country to city chic. And she hopes that readers will follow her lead.” –New York Post
