Review: Novel Interiors by Lisa Borgnes Giramonti

For those who have ever lost themselves in the stylish worlds of novels like Sense and Sensibility, The Age of Innocence, Wuthering Heights, The Picture of Dorian Gray and countless others, this design book embraces the fantasy of time and place, showing you how to bring some of those elements into your own home.

Lisa Giramonti inspires a new approach to decorating: by teaching us through the lens of worlds we may already know and love. With gorgeous photographs by World of Interiors photographer Ivan Terestchenko, aspirational quotes, and tailored reading lists, Novel Interiors reveals the essence and details of interiors mentioned in great literary works. This is a stunning, photo-driven book that shares enchanting and timeless ways to live more elegantly.

Received for review.

There was no way that I could pass this up when I saw it and I'm so glad I snapped it up.  This was such a fun read and while I may not implement many of the designs it was a joy to see how others interpreted great novels as interior design options.

My favorites, of course, were the Bohemian rooms, closely followed by the ones based on The Picture of Dorian Gray.  All were beautifully done and actually looked like they could be lived in by actual humans (and animals - I loved the sprinkling of cats in the pictures).

Overall this was a quite fun read and one that would make a lovely gift for any book loving friend.
