Tastemaker and designer Danielle Rollins invites readers to join her at home for a primer on living and entertaining in style.
Danielle Rollins is renowned for her elegant touch. In her second book, she welcomes readers into her world and shows them how to create gorgeous style at home in rooms tailor-made for gatherings, get-togethers, cocktail hours, dinner parties, and intimate suppers.
Traveling room by room through the house, Rollins shares practical advice and design inspiration. Drawing on her background as an expert hostess and noted designer, Rollins delivers a live-your-best-life guide rooted in the function and design essentials that keep a house beautifully humming: the primacy of a useful floor plan in creating spaces people actually live in and use; the necessity of organization for beautiful, stress-free table settings and entertaining; and creating vivid and happy color schemes that flow seamlessly from room to room. The book will also include more than a dozen entertaining occasions and tablescapes, including Easter brunch in the garden, a fried-chicken buffet supper, and a candlelit Christmas Eve dinner in the living room. With tips for a gracious life, from organizing your china pantry to setting a memorable table, this book is a celebration of the power of opening up your front door and inviting people in.
