About the author

More Beautiful is even better than Sikes first book, Beautiful, although it follows the same familiar layout. More Beautiful has 6 chapters. Although only specifically mentioned in one chapter, I think each chapter with exception of the last features two different homes. Beautiful was organized by color combinations, and More Beautiful focuses on specific decorating styles. The chapters are:
Introduction: features blue and white in the first portion, and neutrals in the second half.
Traditional (bright colors and southern charm): more blue and white to be sure, but also yellows, green, and a touch of coral.
Coastal: blue & white (of course), and neutrals.
Country:: more rustic than the previous chapters, with blue, white, green, black, warm browns, green, and just a hint of lilac.
Mediterranean: more bright colors than the previous chapters, adding red, terracotta, and coral into the mix.
Beautiful: The designers own home!
There are two pages of text in each chapter and a mix of full-page photos and collages. There is a mix of small-print captions describing the specific photos, and larger cursive-style captions that are more like a decorating tip. There are also quotes from famous people mixed throughout.
I found something to relate to in every chapter and I love all the detailed layers. So much inspiration! There is a lot of blue and white, but still enough of other colors as well.
