Book Review: The Way Home by Jeffrey Bilhuber
Today, we would like to share a review for a wonderful interiors book by designer Jeffery Bilhuber titled “The Way Home: Reflections on American Beauty.” Mr. Bilhuber has styled interiors for such posh clientele as Anna Wintour, Iman and David Bowie and Elsa Peretti who is perhaps most famous for her jewelry designs for Tiffany & Co.
The interiors featured in this book are delightfully un-styled with rumpled pillows, disheveled bedding and stray leaves while the interiors themselves are distinctly stylish. We love that the homes are still places where people are living and enjoying life as opposed to prim spaces lacking any indication of human inhabitance.
We swooned over the soft, muted color palettes with splashes of lively color and texture as well as his bold mix of traditional and contemporary art and furniture. The photography is stunning and captures the relaxed mood perfectly. It’s the unexpected, the brave, the insistence that one should surround themselves with things they love that we especially appreciate because it also drives our designs here at Blueseeds.
What are your thoughts on the idea of presenting interiors with touches of the real lives within them?
This book can be found right here in the Blueseeds store! We invite you to check it out along with the many other great interiors and lifestyle books we have.
