Organizing With Style

Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic complimented my bookshelf styling — huge coming from the master stylist herself. The CNBC anchors are reporting from home and I love checking out their bookcases and stuff in the background. Andrew Ross Sorkin’s books are arranged by color, a trend discussed in FT’s How To Spend It magazine.

  • Oh that does look pleasingly calming! I just snuck a peek at Habitally Chic and she has mentioned Fracois Halard’s Instagrams documenting his isolation posts. I think you would like those if you’re not following him already!

  • I love this room Preston…you’ve kept the heritage feel adding elegant modern twists, brilliant!
    The bookcase with a window is a wonderful focal point. I want to curl up on that sofa !!!
    I worked for Brunschwig & Fils for many years, so my eyes went to your Bird & Thistle sofa pillows.

  • Susan, Bird & Thistle is my all-time favorite. Love the green colorway, too. xp

  • I love this room! I have bookcase envy. I’m on the hunt for a smallish bookcase as my new downsized home will only allow for a small bookcase. Or I will have one made to look tucked in similar to your look. I love Heather as well. You and she are two bloggers I have followed consistently from way back.

  • The Dutch door is nice. An homage to the Dutch roots of NYS.

  • I love the simplicity.
    I actually though your dog was a sculpture underneath the table!
    Peaceful.

  • Building your bookshelves around your window was a brilliant idea! PBS staff are also working from home and William Brangham is reporting from his elegant and cozy living room with stunning bookshelves on the wall behind him. Often, one of his cats will be on the sofa!
