This jewel of a decorating book looks at the design details that make up a room's decor, the stylish little touches that can help any room transcend the ordinary. Whether through the luxurious trim and tassel of a bedroom curtain, the whimsy of a uniquely upholstered chair in the dining room, a loose but lush visual landscape on an entry hall table, or a deeply personal arrangement of treasures upon a dressing table, this book celebrates how chic design can be when expressed through personal details and provides a wealth of vignettes to inspire home owners and designers. Organized by type of design arrangement, from full rooms designed with attention to detail and entire walls depicting inspiring arrangements of art and objects, to more intimate still lifes arrayed on desktops, mantels, and bookshelves, It's the Little Things shows us how to display our beloved objects to create sophisticated interiors. With interiors by some of the world's top designers, such as Alessandra Branca, Bunny Williams, John Derian, and India Hicks, among others, and with Salk's encouraging design tips, It's the Little Things inspires us to slow down and pay attention to the details that can add richness and personality to any interior.
