“Thom Filicia proves that small town and high style can meet. His story of transforming a derelict house in a classic Finger Lakes resort community as charming as it is inspiring. The book is full of practical renovation advice and decorating wisdom, but, even better, it’s got heart. What’s impressive is not only what he does, but why, and Filicia’s deep love of this house—and this town—is clear on every page.” –Michael Boodro, Editor in Chief, Elle Décor

“What’s more at the heart of the American dream than the ability to make over something? Thom has not only renovated a house into a real beauty—full of decorating inspiration—he’s shown us how a well-designed house can be the foundation for a wonderful life.”—Newell Turner, Editor in Chief, House Beautiful
