The Meaning of Home

One of my favorite designers, Jeffrey Alan Marks of Bravo's Million Dollar Decorators explores his breezy, tailored designs in his new book, The Meaning of Home.

Inspired by his Southern California lifestyle, Mark's trademark is informality and playful charm combined with the sophistication of English and European accents. The book captures his beautiful homes and his ability to reflect each client's personality, from a movie star's London townhouse to a charming Nantucket cottage.  He explains his creative process throughout the book finishing up with his favorite go-to places for furniture, fabrics, and vintage pieces.  Always bonus to get the inside scoop.

I especially love his ability to design an entire home that pushes the limits while being completely balanced for a totally lived-in feel. Each home reflects the role of the client: a family home, a showroom, a playroom, etc...  He believes each room in a home should be used daily, and I couldn't agree more!
