Michael Lassell, author of Glamour: Making it Modern, says good design isn't all about money, but rather about self realization and imagination. Lassell, director of Metropolitan Home features the best of Metropolitan Home magazine in a wonderful guide that offers a directory of the some of the best designers in the business and a list of resources for available products. Glamour explores more than 200 photographs from the last five years of Metropolitan Home into tips that can make any space alluring enough to be in a magazine. Lassell says “..... the idea is not to look at a photograph and simply repeat it in your own home,” Lassell says. Instead, he educates readers to learn from the top interior designers from around the country and alter the ideas to what best suits your individual style. I cannot wait to get my hands on this book. Like everyone, I am captivated with the cover featuring vintage Regency chairs so ornate that they look like jewelry themselves. Check out these dramatic tufted Regency chairs up close.
