“Lisa Borgnes Giramonti had families from books in mind when researching Novel Interiors: Living in Enchanted Rooms Inspired by Literature. Scouting homes in Southern California, Manhattan and New Jersey, she found details evoking British moors and New England cottages.” –The New York Times
“Conversational, illuminating and full of practical tips for discovering your own design style, Lisa Borgnes Giramonti’s easy-to-digest book matches rooms from the likes of decorator  Schuyler Samperton with richly detailed descriptions of interiors found in more than 60 novels, from Jane Austen’s Emma to Dodie Smith’s “I Capture the Castle.” –The Wall Street Journal
"When it comes to gathering inspiration for a decorating project, there are tried-and-true techniques: culling fabric swatches, tearing pages from magazines, trolling Pinterest, and earmarking furniture catalogues. And there are the more unconventional methods, such as sifting through over 60 classic novels and finding modern homes that match the aesthetic described-down to the last chintz flower." -Architectural Digest

A People Magazine "Best of Holiday Gifts" pick for 2014.

“If you’ve ever wanted to live inside the pages of a novel—sip tea in Mr. Darcy’s parlor or jitterbug in Jay Gatsby’s ballroom—then you need to meet Lisa Borgnes Giramonti.” –Brick Underground
“A celebration of her avid reading and her equally avid approach to décor and design and creating a home and a place to dwell…A delightful book to dive into for inspiration.” –The Style Saloniste

"Design loving bookworms, rejoice: Your perfect coffee table companion is here." -Lonny Magazine

"Borgnes Giramonti offers guidelines to help book lovers mix contemporary tastes with literary style. Mining the details written by literary greats offers up ways to bring those small touches to your home. -Las Vegas Review-Journal

An Interior Design Book for Book Lovers! 4. Dezember 2014
Von dsv - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
A lovely book! The interiors shown are wonderful. Real rooms lived in by real people. I am so weary of decorating and interior design books with perfect interiors and lighting. The photographs tie in nicely with the literary quotes. I found myself running to my bookshelves to look up the quotes and dip into the books referenced by the author. Whatever your style you will find something to delight you. Best of all, nary a flat screen TV hung over a fireplace, or anywhere else for that matter.

Soulful and smart inspiration 7. Dezember 2014
Von Sherry Novembre - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
LBG's book feels like an organic extension of her addictive blog. Warm and conspiratorial, like leaning over the remains of a good meal, drinking the last of the wine with an old friend. Only this friend is a frightening well-read, cheeky artist with a roster of quietly A-list creative compatriots. There's an inclusive vibe in these pages that inspires and invites. The visuals are rich in detail and the homes seem carefully selected not for their instagram-ready breath-catching effect, but as studied support for the concepts discussed. One of my favorite things about her blog is her visual sense and her free-spirited mix of pinterest pix, old oil paintings, moody photography that she uses so well to express her ideas. I was expecting that assemblage approach. But returning to the pages, I see that her choices were wise, and when you have Ivan T at your elbow ready to bring your vision to life, you probably dont want to waste it.
Overall, being a total book-nerd design-freak LBG fan, this was manna from heaven. And my my literary reading list has gotten waaaaaay longer.
Thank you Lisa! Bask in your achievement, relax and refill your creative tank, and we look forward to your next interesting adventure.

The Coolest Twist On Decorating - LOVE LOVE!!! 4. Dezember 2014
Von Suze - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I just got my book today in the mail and had to sit in the coziest place in my home to read it. I have always been a huge fan of Lisa Borgnes Giramonti's blog A Bloomsbury Life and this book went way beyond. I am so inspired by how she mixed the decorating basics with Literary classics from authors like Jane Austin, Henry James, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Edith Wharton. There were so many unique tips from layering patterns, using restraint, creating drama with dark and light to how to rock a bohemian room. That doesn't even touch it. Every chapter has so many pearls of wisdom. This is definitely not just another pretty decorating book this is the decorating playbook.

For literature lovers who enjoy inhabiting a good book 21. Dezember 2014
Von Learning Table - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
For literature lovers who enjoy inhabiting a good book, the inspiration in Novel Interiors provides a look inside some favorite literary rooms. This unique decorating and style book imagines the interiors of rooms from more than sixty works from authors like F. Scott Fitzgerald, Jane Austin, Katherine Mansfield, and Emily Bronte.

The stunning photography in Novel Interiors gives readers a fantasy escape into the worlds of the imagination, featuring whimsical decor from Anthropologie, West Elm, Pottery Barn, John Derian, Restoration Hardware, Dwell Studio, and more familiar sources.

An especially wonderful gift idea for a book lover, Novel Interiors is not only a visual feast, but it is also a well-written guide to color and design. The author explains how each palette is achieved so that readers can bring some literary influence into their home design. Even little touches can provide joy, such as a vintage suitcase or a cushy pillow. Need a gift for your English teacher? You can't go wrong with this one.

A Beautiful Book for the Bibliophile! 11. Dezember 2014
Von Brenda N. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The idea for this book is truly inspired. Choosing rooms that are similar to those described by works of great literature. I must admit, it intrigued me to see what the author would come up with.

I found this book a delightful read. An excellent coffee table book that would create conversation if left out for guests to peruse. But also containing enough decorating advice that one would enjoy picking it up on a snowy evening while sipping hot chocolate and losing oneself in the photos.

Imagine rooms inspire by L. M. Montgomery, or Elizabeth Gaskell, or Jane Austen, or F. Scott Fitzgerald, or Willa Cather... to name only a few authors of novels who inspired the rooms showcased in this book.

The title of the Introduction explains the contents a little bit more, "We Don't Just Read a Great Story, We Inhabit It". The various section headings are as follows:

Shall I Put the Kettle On? (British books, of course)
Remembrance of Things Past
Living au Naturel
Oh, the Glamour of It All
Anything Goes
Sometimes a Fantasy

I doubt few would use this book as a pure decorating source, rather it provides a look at what rooms describe in favorite novels would look like as shown in real life homes today. Although it would also provide inspiration that one can pick and choose from the pages to try at home.

Now I do have one caveat about this book. You most likely will look at some of the rooms representing a favorite novel and think it in no way is what you thought the home would look like. For one of the joys of reading is to create our own backdrop mentally of what we think people, rooms, towns, etc. appear in our visualization.

But the author creates rooms from the descriptions within the pages of the book, how she sees them represented. Which may not completely agree with your ideas but are still authentic to the period. I found it amusing that some of the rooms I definitely did not find attractive are associated with novels I didn't care for either. Hmmm...

If you are looking for a unique Christmas gift this year for the Bibliophile in your life, this would be it. I came away with not only an appreciation of the beautiful photography but a desire to read books listed within the pages I hadn't thought of adding to my list.

This book was provided by the publisher for the purpose of review but the opinion is my own.
