When I learned that Dallas-based interior designer Cathy Kincaid was releasing her first book this fall – The Well Adorned Home: Making Luxury Livable – I could not have been more excited! Kincaid is hands down one of my favorite designers… her work is classic and oh so pretty, exhibiting keen use of color and intricate attention to detail. Her worldly taste in collecting art and furnishings, her intricate layering of patterns, and the customized details–from trelliswork to lacquered surfaces–she applies to every room are hallmarks of her style. It is truly timeless.
The Well Adorned Home presents varied residences, ranging from a ship captain’s cottage and a 1920s Spanish Colonial to a bucolic farmhouse and a family house in the country, in such locations as Dallas, Connecticut, and the South of France. Sprinkled throughout is Kincaid’s advice on such topics as selecting the right lighting, whether it be sconces or lamps; ways to showcase blue-and-white porcelain; and suggestions for how to edit one’s home. She has been long involved in historic preservation, working on many landmarked dwellings in tandem with my favorite architect, Wilson Fuqua. In The Well Adorned Home, Kincaid shares her secrets on how to achieve a comfortable yet sumptuous home environment. Let’s take a sneak peek inside!
The Well Adorned Home: Making Luxury Livable is currently available for purchase via Amazon, where it is a number one release!
