Giveaway :: Good Bones, Great Pieces Book

good bones great pieces book review
Selecting furniture pieces that you will love for decades can be overwhelming. However, the mother-daughter designing duo, Suzanne and Lauren McGrath are making the selection process much easier in their book, Good Bones, Great Pieces. By focusing on seven essential, timeless pieces  – the love seat, demilune, bench, dresser, slipper chair, side table and occasional chair –  the McGraths have created a resourceful book that everyone including seasoned decorators will want in their collection.
For the McGraths decorating isn’t about following trends, but about following one simple rule: “Almost every piece you purchase should have the ability to take on more than one role in your current or future home.” Their multi-functional design philosophy is aligned with my own and perhaps that’s why I adore this book so much. Take a peek at some of the beautiful images, valuable advice and stunning illustrations…

    I found your page through a Good Bones Great Pieces pin on Pinterest. I'm now following your blog and wish I would have run into it before. Great ideas, just read your post on your Hexagon terrarium. I love low maintenance plants, can't wait to try this idea! Looking forward to reading more posts.
