The opulent many level Tory Burch store in Beverly Hills on Rodeo Drive hosted a champagne filled night last week to celebrate the coffee table book Novel Interiors, a book pouring with design inspiration for your home, but this time the decorating ideas come from literature. This glamorous book by Lisa Borgnes Giramonti filled with bold photographs by World of Interiors photographer Ivan Terestchenko shows you how to live elegantly. The book is packed with aspirational quotes, tailored reading lists, and reveals the essence and details of interiors mentioned in great literary works.
The beautifully designed space of Tory Burch was the perfect setting for this book celebration. We spent the night on the rooftop by a fireplace, surrounded by candles, and under the LA sky wondering how our favorite books could influence our tastes and styles at home.
Lisa Borgnes Giramonti founded a lifestyle/design blog called “A Bloomsbury Life” with one goal in mind: to figure out how to live a modern life through an Old World lens. Since then, over two million visitors have joined her on her quest to live more meaningfully. Lisa has written for Martha Stewart magazine, Hyland magazine and was given her own style column in W Magazine. She has also been featured on the pages of many design magazines, blogs and national newspapers. Besides being an embroidery artist that melds the old with the new, in 2013 the Huffington Post declared her one of “Five LA Women Artists to Watch.” Now, Lisa shares with us how classic novels can inspire our homes.
