Even in this golden age of interior design publishing, Susanna Salk's "It's the Little Things" is a standout. In a book that features the work of many designers and a large stable of photographers, there is, with few exceptions, remarkable consistency in the beauty and intrigue of the tableaux and the quality pf page layouts, The size of the book, smaller than a typical coffee-table volume, suits the subject matter perfectly, and the quality of the paper adds to a sense of the book's enduring value.
"It's the Little Things" is divided into five chapters: Surfaces, Walls, Mantels, Little Moments, and Big Moments. The range of decor styles varies dramatically, from the classic and luxe of Ann Getty to the spare, modern, and avant garde. But commonalities also exist. Most notable is the juxtaposition of objects both precious and modest to produce major decorating impact. For many readers, the book's most important feature will be its ability to inspire our own efforts, for it shows how objects already owned but previously overlooked and even unearthed at second-hand stores and in gardens can, in combination, create a sense of wonder and celebration.
Love the images in this book. I'm a maximalist, and this was catnip for me. I'm especially happy that some of the images that I have in Pinterest are in this book. Pinterest is great, don't get me wrong, but sometimes I like a larger printed image to look at!
