Ronda Carman, founder of the popular lifestyle blog "All the Best," takes readers on a guided tour through the houses of renowned designers, who share their thoughts on gracious living and how they bring their professional philosophies home. Designers at Home: Personal Reflections on Stylish Living presents the personal living spaces of today’s design leaders, including Ashley Hicks, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Jan Showers, Rose Tarlow, and Bunny Williams. The dwellings range from chic apartments and luxurious estates to charming country homes. From Barry Dixon’s Edwardian manor in Virginia’s horse country and the glamorous Beverly Hills home of Hutton Wilkinson to the serene Sag Harbor retreat of Steven Gambrel, each page is filled with inspiring home design, ideas for entertaining, and glorious imagery that invites readers to explore the idiosyncrasies of design while infusing their own homes with individuality and flair. The book’s conversational tone and practical tips from these experts provide a referential approach to creating a highly personal place. From favorite sheets and pillows, how to create impromptu dinner parties, to the decorative details that bring a room to life, each designer’s unique talents will encourage the reader to fashion a wonderful sanctuary of their own.
