While I missed my usual Tuesday snapchat appointment last week, I got to make up for it in the best way possible: hanging out with my dear friend Christiane Lemieux at the One Kings Lane studio. We got the chance to talk about her newest book, upcoming design trends, and pieces she herself considers must-haves for her home. Read on to learn why her new book, The Finer Things, had to be my newest Daily Find!
Christiane's book The Finer Things went on sale in the beginning of September and is an absolute must-have. It is luxurious, comprehensive, and dives into the most timeless elements of home decor. Not only are its contents incredible, it also looks beautiful — it's a book that deserves the front and center spot on your coffee table.
Below is some more information on this wide-ranging tome:
In The Finer Things, Christiane explores the elements of resilient home design. She uncovers the traditions, tools, and major players in the home-goods industries—from wallpaper to flooring, tile, furniture and more—so that homeowners learn how to thoughtfully identify the hallmarks of timeless, heirloom-quality pieces and how to use them to great effect. In addition to Christiane's own expert instruction, readers will also hear from dozens of other true home-design experts who not only live well, but who also make quality products that stand the test of time!
The Finer Things is equal parts inspiration and practical classic: A visual timeline shows the history of artisan tile, a studio visit goes behind the scenes with the high-end wallpaper company de Gournay, and tastemakers' interiors dripping with style and luxury give timeless decorating ideas.
Authoritative and comprehensive in scope, this beautiful and lavishly illustrated 400-page volume is complete with thick pages and a very special cover treatment, making it a true collector's item.
Today on Snapchat: I am featuring this great new product that I simply cannot get enough of! This company makes art accessible and easy to change with your mood. Tune in this afternoon @AptTherapy to see for yourself!
