From the Third Coast comes this inspirational interiors book by award-winning interior designers Sandra Lucas and Sarah Eilers, who show us how to design inviting homes with a classical backbone that are stylish and versatile for today's living. Native Houstonians Lucas and Eilers's aesthetic marries the entrepreneurial, can-do spirit of the West with Southern grace. The distinctive influences of their hometown--from the architecture of John Staub to the textures and color palettes of the surrounding Texas ranches and expansive landscapes to the impact of futuristic NASA--infuse their design choices. Whether traditional, contemporary, or transitional in style, the rooms they create are timeless. The duo's seasoned insight into the principles and elements of interior design forms the book's heart. Touching on such topics as scale and proportion, color and light, and pattern and texture, they explore their pragmatic, imaginative approach to creating expressive living spaces in a diverse range of projects from coast to coast. They then tour us through several homes, including a comfortable family ski compound in Utah with repurposed rough-hewn wooden beams and custom forged-steel fireplace surrounds; a Houston shotgun home rich with patina; and a charming Gulf Coast beach house. For those passionate about interiors, this wealth of design fundamentals is inspirational.

The Beauty of Home combines refined elegance and innovative simplicity for a fresh, new perspective on traditional interior design. Marie Flanigan’s trademark style is evident through her sophisticated use of texture, color, and light. These components combine to create environments in which people love to live. The Beauty of Home details the specific design elements integral to Marie’s creative process. Highlighting nine elements—architecture, composition, character, palette, illumination, detail, simplicity, depth, and surprise—each chapter begins with Marie’s philosophy of design on that particular element, and is followed by photo collections of individual homes with commentary and meaning behind each image—how it specifically relates to the chapter element, and design as a whole. This is a sophisticated philosophy-of-design work, complemented by gorgeous photography featuring more than twenty diverse homes displaying custom furnishings, antiques, textiles, and fine art.
