When On Decorating was published in 1989, it immediately became a touchstone for design profesionals and enthusiasts. Since then, the ideas and illustrations within these pages have inspired countless room schemes, vignettes, and color palettes. Mark Hampton's expert insights into the creation of elegant rooms, and his remarkably immediate voice, remain just as relevant today. Posthumously celebrated by Architectural Digest as "one of the wold's twenty greatest designers of all time," Hampton regarded every design project as a collaboration. That same generosity of spirit pervades this book, offering signature principles that can easily be applied to any home. In the Colors section, Hampton makes a convincing case fo using dark green as a neutral, and encourages readers not to fear painting walls red. In Plans, he explains the keys to arranging a living room that telegraphs comfort, not just refinement. In Materials, Hampton demonstrates how strongly patterned wallpaper can visually enlarge a small space, contrary to popular belief. Throughout this colleciton of essays, which were substantially expanded from his popular House & Garden columns, Hampton shares witty anecdotes and observations that render this education in home decoration a delight. Faithfully reproduced with his original, often-emulated watercolor illustrations and with an afterword by his duaghter, reowned designer Alexa Hampton, this beautiful reprint edition is a book to pore over, savor, and share.

The Peak of Chic blogger Jennifer Boles--who counts Newell Turner, Alexa Hampton, Stephen Drucker, and Veranda founder Lisa Newsom among her loyal readers--presents a charming encyclopedia of 100 of the most stylish decorating details (chintz, striped walls, and orangeries) that were favored by the great tastemakers of the twentieth century. Best of all, Jennifer gives helpful tips on decorating with these traditional flourishes today. The 1930s to the 1960s were a grand time for decorating: they saw Chippendale chairs and grotto furniture, house stationery, monograms, tented rooms, and vanities--much of which has since been forgotten or taken for granted. In In with the Old Jennifer Boles breathes new life into gracious living with 100 entries organized from A to Z on her favorite decorating essentials of the past. Each entry explores curious facts, anecdotes, and timeless advice plucked from the legacies of Billy Baldwin, Dorothy Draper, Sister Parish, the Duchess of Windsor, and other tastemakers whose influence continues today. With a foreword by Alexa Hampton and charming illustrations and photographs, In with the Old is a guide to stylish living that will inspire and delight. From the Hardcover edition.

The first book on the houses and interiors of a firm known for its sensitive and sumptuous residential work in traditional and contemporary styles. Whether for a plantation guesthouse in South Carolina or a Dutch Colonial home on Long Island Sound, Eric J. Smith's evocative designs are the result of thoughtful planning integrated with a deep understanding of his clients' lives and lifestyles, a design ethos beautifully evident in the book. From a Georgian home in California and a French Country home on Long Island to a Shelter Island fishing camp, Smith's work is at once an homage to tradition and an expression of the living beauties these traditions still offer. Over the course of a storied career, and often working with prestigious interior designers--including Alexa Hampton, David Easton, and William Diamond--Smith has garnered a reputation for a kind of personal architecture that is, in each case, in sync with the homeowner, whomever he or she may be, and the place, whether it is oceanfront, on a hillside, or set beside a lake or stream. Renewing Tradition features custom residential projects from New York to California, and Bermuda to the United Kingdom, and Smith's houses, apartments, and country cabins are a revelation, work to be savored and which will serve to inspire homeowners in search of a guide to achieving comfortable elegance in the home.
