Happy Winter Soltstice and one last book review for 2015! Jeffrey Bilhuber's American Master-Notes on Style and Substance is a wonderful read and a fabulous source of inspiration. I love to give (and receive) design books, so naturallly I think this would make an incredibly thoughtful gift for "that hard to shop for" person on your list.
My favorite aspect of this book is the range of styles Bilhuber has implemented in his interiors throughout the years. Here's a small sample of some of my favorite (and most colorful) rooms from American Master.
