More Beautiful: All-American Decoration
Interior designer Mark Sikes burst onto the publishing scene with his first book Beautiful. His second book, aptly titled More Beautiful, picks up where the first left off, showcasing Mark's most recent decorating work and providing the reader with details on how to get the look. The rooms are divided into five styles.
Traditional features rooms filled with painted wicker, botanical curtains, and inviting chintz armchairs. Country is a modern take on the style, with striped sisal stair runners, bamboo blinds, and white painted wood. Cottage is streamlined, with natural woven fibres, and furniture with simple lines. California is richly patterned, tailored and layered. Mediterranean features a deeper palette with tile, ikat, and wood.
No matter the theme, all of the rooms are light-filled and crisply patterned, chic yet comfortable, just the way people want to live today.
