We love how renown American interior designer Jeffrey Bilhuber’s work strikes just the right balance between traditionalism and modern sensibilities. Mixing periods and design ideas with a confidence and instinctive style, his clients entrust him to bring comfort, practicality, and sheer beauty into their lives and residences.

Needless to say, we were thrilled when Jeffrey Bilhuber: American Master came out this fall. In the designer’s latest book, he shares thirty years of expertise and creative inspiration designing beautiful and brilliantly modern rooms.
Presenting a diverse range of his stylish work from around the country, the book is centered around 30 signature statements by Bilhuber—pithy, insightful quotes like: “What’s liberating is to be fearless,” “It’s easy to get white wrong. It takes talent to get it right” and “It’s powerfully important to sit at the table and talk to each other.”

When we reached out to the expert to see if he had any advice on how to refresh the look of our home for the new year, Jeffrey gave us a surprisingly easy tip: transform a room by changing out your lampshades!

"I like anything that requires detailed, creative attention, especially lampshades. To some, a lampshade is just a lampshade, to me, it's a whole microcosm of form, function and craftsmanship… In a word, take extra time when selecting lampshades, as these details can transform a room from dull to delightful."
