SUZANNE KASLER Edited Style
Ohhhhhhh, the beauty inside this work of art!
Suzanne Kasler starts with the redesign of her unforgettable Regency-style home.
What you’ll discover from the featured projects inside? Family-oriented houses, casual beach houses, mountain retreats, and inviting country getaways. And don’t for a second think this designer decorates exclusively with white and subdued neutrals…

You’ll want to read every word, but even if you don’t, you’ll be spoiled with the plethora of original design possibilities and may be compelled (as I am!) to stop and study carefully each beautifully photographed image in Edited Style.
Should you already own a book from Suzanne Kasler, Edited Style remains an essential edition…look at the bath above! Ever seen anything quite like it?
What’s that? You’re in the mood for more innovative bath design? Perfect!

In fact, the former bath of one of our favorite creative teams (Brooke and Steve Giannetti) is inside this glorious collection of dreamy designs.
Why This Book is Inspiring Me Right Where I Am
Psst. As I type these words, my own primary bath is a mountain of rubble, and it is destined to get worse by day’s end. We’re demolishing existing tile and structures in a sad, outdated bath that no longer serves in order to make way for a timeless space to recover and begin the day.
STEPHEN SILLS: A Vision for Design
Stephen Sills is recognized as a unique artistic voice in the design world and known for creating atmospheric, luxurious and timeless interiors.
The pages inside his new book reveal recent projects stretching from the East to the West Coast.
Each story begins with a mood board revealing the influences and guiding principles for each house.
Sills bookeneds each project with essays on topics including architecture, craft, landscape, and types of rooms.
If you’re ready for design enrichment, you’ll discover A VISION FOR DESIGN is overflowing with creative content. Since Sills has collaborated with a range of artists (longtime client, Tina Turner, AD100 designer David Netto, and Martha Stewart), it’s truly an eclectic mix.
Also find the author’s reflections about the evolution of his style. What are his passions? How can we develop a keener eye?
