Beautiful: All-American Decorating and Timeless Style by Mark D. Sikes

New York Times bestseller

Beautiful is a “beautiful” book that’s a preppy blogger favorite. It features grandmillenial home decor primarily with a blue and white, floral, preppy, New England coastal twist. I love how it is arranged by color and theme with references to specific pop culture icons and more that influenced the design.

And, the author just came out with a sequel!: More Beautiful: All American Decoration. This book is similar but has more global influences.
