Book review- Fifth Avenue Style!

Thanks to Meghan and The Vendome Press for sending me another amazing coffee table book, "Fifth Avenue Style" authored by designer, Howard Slatkin and photographed by Tria Giovan.

My book arrived beautifully wrapped with a sweet handwritten note by the author, Howard Slatkin himself. To my surprise, the inside of my book was signed as well, how thoughtful! Thanks Mr. Howard Slatkin!

The huge 240-pages book starts with a detailed illustrated floor plan of Howard Slatkins' Fifth Avenue home.

In his book, Howard Slatkin shows us his exquisite home, from the main areas to the intimate areas such as the closets, dressing room and other rarely seen private rooms. He also shares how he found his home, his thoughts and the inspirations behind each rooms that he meticulously designed.

Filled with amazingly detailed and excellent craftsmanship, careful lighting and floor planning, sumptuous fabrics, unique one-of-a-kind pieces, clever arrangement of furniture, delightful decorative display objects and family photos, his home feels luxuriously refined and sophisticated yet personal.

Here is a sneak peek of his gorgeous home below.

Aren't his home sumptuous? The beauty, luxury and meticulous details in this magnificent home totally blows my mind! His home is truly a labor of love and I find it really inspirational! Even if you are not a maximalist at heart, you will still appreciate his attention to details and his practical advice on ways to turn a home into something comfortable, functional and beautiful.

I absolutely love this book and all the visual eye candy, I know you will, too! Don't miss this stunning book, get your copy here.
