A Monacelli Press title.
From acclaimed southern designer Janie Molster comes this lively collection of vibrant interiors and insightful advice for colorful living.
How do you make a home that fits to a T? That’s tailored to your lifestyle, perfectly expresses your personality, is as comfortable as a second skin, and lets you live life to the fullest? Over more than two decades, Janie Molster has become known for creating family homes that are as bold and sophisticated as they are inviting and practical. In House Dressing, Janie reveals the secrets behind her unique ability to craft dreamy interiors and shares down-to-earth advice for creating your own beautiful and personal spaces.
Showcasing a range of projects, Janie invites readers into country cottages, a riverside retreat, and her own urban farmhouse—Janie’s personal design lab—exploring different styles, from glamorous and soulful to contemporary and eclectic. Janie tells the story and describes her thinking behind the design of each one: her recipe for the perfect mix of antique and new, easy but impactful paint treatments you can try, and—based on her own experience—how to create a fabulous home for a family of seven.
Through House Dressing, Janie gives a master class in working with color, pattern, and texture to make spaces that are in turn bold, serene, glamorous, and comfortable, but always personal.Specifications:
