Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307884902, Hardcover)

For the wide audience who adores television, print, and product-designing media darling and star decorator Thom Filicia's new American style, and for anyone who has ever dreamed of creating her own retreat, this is both a deeply felt story of true house love and a decorating book brimming with beauty.

Thom Filicia wasn't looking for another escape from his busy city life. But when visiting New York’s Finger Lakes, a place he loved as a child, he fell madly in love with a fixer-upper. Two years and one careful, respectful, and impassioned renovation later, it has become the house of his dreams--one that profoundly speaks to his happy memories of lazy days spent on the lake or in the town of Skaneateles.
 
With more than 300 stunning photographs,  American Beauty is the story of this house, and an inspiration resource that imparts Thom's extensive wisdom on creating rooms that feel modern yet meaningful and classic.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:02:32 -0400)

The professional designer and former star of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" describes his purchase and renovation of a fixer-upper on Skaneateles Lake, where he had fond memories of vacationing as a child.
