The Los Angeles celebrity-home interior designer's first book reveals how to achieve laid-back luxury through her casual-yet-elegant decorating style, which mixes tailored, lived-in pieces with an airy, inviting spirit.
Beloved by celebrities from Patrick Dempsey to Ellen Pompeo to Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake, Estee Stanley has become one of the top interior designers because of her modern approach to living: real luxury is having a home that blends comfort with elegance, authenticity with simplicity. It means being perfectly set up to relax with your family and friends, surrounded by the things you love but nothing frivolous, nothing that requires constant maintenance and attention to look effortlessly chic.
This book provides an in-depth exploration of Estee's style and how readers can achieve it in their own homes, according to their own tastes and lifestyles. Throughout the pages, Estee invites readers into her world by offering home-decor and accessories imagery from some of her most iconic projects. With a resources section ("Estee's Style File") and hundreds of never-been-seen, utterly cool photos throughout, In Comfort and Style is a must-have for the new generation of homeowners and design enthusiasts.

"Stylist turned designer turned agent Estee Stanley offers up an irreverent monograph celebrating her chic West Coast style and playful spirit. Unsurprisingly, Stanley’s fashion background comes up a lot, whether it’s finding inspiration from a Gucci clutch or offering tips for a dazzling closet. The rooms themselves are pure New Hollywood: a little scuffed leather here, some velvet there, natural light, bold prints and vintage—but nothing that tries too hard. It’s a casual, fun take on glamour, with a dose of realism to spike the punch (Stanley has designed more than one kids’ room). Scattered throughout are whimsical illustrations by Carly Kuhn." — BUSINESSOFHOME.COM
