Product Details


“Lisa Borgnes Giramonti had families from books in mind when researching Novel Interiors: Living in Enchanted Rooms Inspired by Literature. Scouting homes in Southern California, Manhattan and New Jersey, she found details evoking British moors and New England cottages.” –The New York Times
“Conversational, illuminating and full of practical tips for discovering your own design style, Lisa Borgnes Giramonti’s easy-to-digest book matches rooms from the likes of decorator  Schuyler Samperton with richly detailed descriptions of interiors found in more than 60 novels, from Jane Austen’s Emma to Dodie Smith’s “I Capture the Castle.” –The Wall Street Journal
“When it comes to gathering inspiration for a decorating project, there are tried-and-true techniques: culling fabric swatches, tearing pages from magazines, trolling Pinterest, and earmarking furniture catalogues. And there are the more unconventional methods, such as sifting through over 60 classic novels and finding modern homes that match the aesthetic described-down to the last chintz flower.” –Architectural Digest

A People Magazine “Best of Holiday Gifts” pick for 2014.

“If you’ve ever wanted to live inside the pages of a novel—sip tea in Mr. Darcy’s parlor or jitterbug in Jay Gatsby’s ballroom—then you need to meet Lisa Borgnes Giramonti.” –Brick Underground
“A celebration of her avid reading and her equally avid approach to décor and design and creating a home and a place to dwell…A delightful book to dive into for inspiration.” –The Style Saloniste

“Design loving bookworms, rejoice: Your perfect coffee table companion is here.” –Lonny Magazine

“Borgnes Giramonti offers guidelines to help book lovers mix contemporary tastes with literary style. Mining the details written by literary greats offers up ways to bring those small touches to your home. –Las Vegas Review-Journal

“A gorgeous hardback, this book is filled with beautiful photographs, a commentary that makes it feel more like reading a favorite novel than a how to book, and quotes from all the greats. This book deserves a favorite spot on your shelf.” —Nerdophiles
