A beautifully reproduction of the original book published in 1939. Filled with tips, advice and anecdotes on decorating that still ring true today. A must-have for fans and followers of both Dorothy Draper and Carleton Varney. Republished with its original illustrations and a new introduction by Draper’s protégé, designer Carleton Varney. Amazingly, the book is still practical, amusing and inspirational. Draper’s earnest enthusiasm feels fresh and contemporary. She believed that though there were troubles in the world, one’s home should be a refuge, a cheerful place for entertaining one’s friends and a colorful and comfortable shelter from the storm.
