Jeffrey Bilhuber: Defining Luxury: The Qualities of Life at Home

"...a testament to improving life via good taste and great style." --Traditional Home

"(Bilhuber) encourages his readers to seek luxury regardless of how simple or extravagant..."

So many design books today are filled with houses that only an elite few can come close to approximating--the "Architectural Digest" type. Jeffrey Bilhuber's book is compiled of beautiful vignettes that contain wonderful ideas for placement and juxtaposition of objects and fabrics. He combines the classic with the contemporary in interesting and evocative ways. I bought this book for myself and for Christmas presents. I think he truly has exciting taste.

I read the last review, and couldn't disagree more. This is a picture book, and not a study guide. So many people want to pick up a book and figure out how to do it themselves. This is a beautiful book which shows Mr. Bilhubers style very well. I never understand people who base their review on their personal style and not on the quality of the work no matter the style. The book has beautiful full page pictures that aren't tiny vignettes of spaces. There are many beautiful color combinations that are unusual but still work beautifully and should inspire people to be more creative in choosing colors and patterns. This is a very nice book.
