Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865652899, Hardcover)

Howard Slatkin’s philosophy is that a home should be a deeply personal refuge that gives pleasure and comfort. Focusing on his own masterfully imagined Fifth Avenue apartment, Slatkin demonstrates how any space can achieve a level of sophisticated calm through careful lighting and floor planning, clever arrangement of furniture, and decorative displays. In this gorgeously illustrated volume, Slatkin, an interior designer and founder of the iconic home-fragrance and lifestyle brand Slatkin & Co., shares his practical—and often ingenious—methods for creating unique, personal rooms that are comfortable and functional as well as beautiful, and reveals his secrets to entertaining with ease and flair. Slatkin shows how rooms should flow naturally, how to create an intimate feeling, and how to find imaginative solutions for turning awkward spaces and limitations into assets.

Howard is also one of the founders of the home fragrance company Slatkin & Co. so I'm sure his homes smells as good as it looks!" — Habitually Chic
