I didn't even realise this book was out, until I stumbled on a post on the lovely blog, Velvet & Linen. "Style and Substance" is a 240-page collection of beautifully decorated spaces, taken from the past 20 years of Elle Decor magazine (the book marks the 20th anniversary of the mag). Published in December 2009, with much fanfare, it includes a “Style Guide" as well as a Sourcebook”, which features a list of must-visit shops — online and in stores. Bonus points for reproducing those exquisite homes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianne Moore and LA-based fashoin designer Monique L'Huillier. As a die hard Elle Decor fan, it's
going gone straight on my wishlist. Buy your copy here at Booktopia, or here at Amazon.
