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.
