NORA MURPHY'S COUNTRY HOUSE STYLE

Making Your Home a Country House

by Golden, DeborahMurphy, NoraSimon, DuAnne

Nora has distilled the essence of her knowledge about the fundamentals of country house style and how to achieve it in this irresistible volume.

Nora Murphy has turned her passion for country house style and its embodimenther own home in Newtown, Connecticutinto a multimedia juggernaut. Her blog, website, e-magazine, strong presence on social media, and increasing visibility in print media and on TV have earned her a devoted following all over the country and around the world particularly in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands and Brazil (among top 10 locations her blog and website readers come from)

Nora has distilled the essence of her knowledge about the fundamentals of country house style and how to achieve it in this irresistible volume.

In the introduction, Murphy lays out the universal elements of country house style: creating a place where everyone is always welcome; where comfort is always in style; where there's always room for our favorite things; where there's always a reason to celebrate; where we honor tradition by changing it up; where home extends well beyond our walls.

The body of the book shows how the elements of this comfortable, comforting, easy aesthetic and approach to life can be applied in different ways and in different locations to striking, individual effect. Murphy features six homes, beginning with her own, each of which expresses a unique take on the style, from elegant country to English cottage country to vintage farmhouse country to historical country.

Part primer, part wish book, Nora Murphy's Country House Style, illustrated entirely with specially commissioned photography, is all inspiration.

Nora Murphy studied interior design at the Fashion Institute of Technology and founded her own interior design and architectural and product illustration firm. She was soon tapped to work as a design project manager for Polo Ralph Lauren Home Collection, followed by many years at Ethan Allen, where she rose to the position of executive vice president of style and advertising. She left Ethan Allen in 2011 to launch Nora Murphy Country House.
