Novel Interiors: Living in Enchanted Rooms Inspired by Literature by Lisa Borgnes Giramonti (Author), Ivan Terestchenko (Photographer)

Book Description:  For those who have ever lost themselves in the stylish worlds of novels like Sense and Sensibility, The Age of Innocence, Wuthering Heights, The Picture of Dorian Gray and countless others, this design book embraces the fantasy of time and place, showing you how to bring some of those elements into your own home.

Lisa Giramonti inspires a new approach to decorating: by teaching us through the lens of worlds we may already know and love. With gorgeous photographs by World of Interiors photographer Ivan Terestchenko, aspirational quotes, and tailored reading lists, Novel Interiors reveals the essence and details of interiors mentioned in great literary works. This is a stunning, photo-driven book that shares enchanting and timeless ways to live more elegantly.

My Thoughts:  Have you ever read a book such as, Withering Heights?And had a mental image, a picture of the house and interior but the images weren't as clear as you would have liked?  Maybe, because, you had never since a pre Victorian feinting couch or a wood burning stove used for cooking?  
Well, now there is a book, Novel Interiors: Living in Enchanted Rooms Inspired by Literature by Lisa Borgnes Giramonti  (Author), Ivan Terestchenko (Photographer), that brings some of our favorite novels to life through photography.
This is an incredible book!  The photographs are lovely.  Love the title, Novel Interiors:  Living in Enchanted Rooms.  
It's interesting that through photographs we now can "see" what only our imaginations once made up.  I enjoyed "seeing" my favorite novels come to life through photographs.  The pictures made the novels more real for me.
Novel Interiors is one of those books that not only makes a lovely gift but it is a great conversation starter.  
A beautiful book!
