Tomes for the Home

Interior of Foxfire Mountain House as featured in Foxfire Living.

Of course we love to read year-round. But it’s so nice to hunker down when the weather is cooler to get book-nooky with it, joined by a warm blanket and a hot beverage.

One of the places we love to find home-design books is Trapp and Company in Midtown because the selections change seasonally. These are the books we’re eagerly awaiting this autumn.

Foxfire Living: Design, Recipes and Stories From the Magical Inn in the Catskills by Eliza Clark and Tim Trojian
Designer Eliza Clark and her chef husband Tim Trojian created Foxfire Mountain House, an 11-room inn and restaurant that serves as a stylish retreat in Mount Tremper, New York. The inn features vintage leather and velvet sofas and sheepskin rugs. The book tells the story of furnishings, light fixtures, paint colors and more.

Living With Color by Rebecca Atwood
This new book by Atwood, a textile designer, is the companion to the popular Living With Pattern. The book acts as a practical guide for boldly choosing color for the home.

Down to Earth: Laid-Back Interiors for Modern Living by Lauren Liess
Liess lit the design world on fire with her first book Habitat, which walked readers step-by-step through her process. Down to Earth follows up with a look at six different homes that incorporate her aesthetic: nature, easy living, and approachability.
