Book Club: Details — A Stylist’s Secrets

Details: A Stylist’s Secrets to Creating Inspired Interiors by Lili Diallo is an inspiring book. Filled with photos of beautifully styled interiors, it makes you rethink how you decorate. Frankly, Lili Diallo had me at the pink sofa on the cover! I am grateful to Michele from The Great Read for recommending this delightful book. Diallo’s style secrets include choosing a color and creating a loose narrative around it, while re-using what you already have and supplementing with found and recycled items. In other words, it’s kind of urban-meets-hipster chic while still following traditional grouping rules. That’s what makes it worth reading; perhaps it will shake up your preconceived ideas about how to use what you already have.

And buy some pink peonies.

  1. You sweetheart! And you are featuring one of my favorite photos from her book – I copied her and did a splash of yellow on the wall – it is just dreamy. So glad you are enjoying her read.

    1. I loved your laundry room and especially loved how you translated her urban chic to your southern chic. Good bones are good bones, no matter what your location!

  2. Even though pink isn’t my usual color, I feel that sofa calling me too! Going to read this. 🙂

    1. There’s a little silver in her magic — but perhaps not enough. I’m still interpreting silver as a neutral in my decorating. 🙂 I’m not as big on bones as I am on silver.

  3. I have a similar sofa, LOL. LOve the fabric, is the fabric sold online?
