Signature Style: Creating Beautiful Interiors from Traditional Home Books
One of my favorite decorating books is Signature Style: Creating Beautiful Interiors from Traditional Home Books.
The book is about finding your own approach to design. All of the interiors are Traditional, but the eight different designers have very different approaches.
There are a lot of photos, as you would expect. But the designers explain their process. They let you know what to look for in each photo.
Blue Willow Cabinet Pulls and Handles
I’ve been looking for an option for the handles and knobs in our new kitchen. The countertops are going to be cobalt blue and I collect Blue Willow China.
Here are three of options I have found.

Booklet in the Traditional Home “We want you back” Packet
Traditional Home just sent a “We want you back” packet.* The packet has a little booklet in it. I would Pin every picture in the booklet. I love Traditional Home magazine.
This is another choice for the bar that goes with a lot of different styles.
Whether they are made of natural rattan or a synthetic copy, these bar stools mix with so many styles.
Perfect in a beach house, especially with a woven seat in a bright shade of blue.
