SUSANNA SALK'S CHIC WEEKEND RETREATS

The April Showers have continued into June in the Northeastern United States this year.   While you may be heading to your weekend house - I'll bet you will be spending more time inside than ever before.   One way to spend a few hours curled up on the sofa is with Susanna Salk's second book - WEEKEND RETREATS.   Published by Rizzoli, Weekend Retreats is also the perfect gift to give to the host or hostess you are visiting this summer.  

Susanna Salk is a design expert known for giving an insiders view of the quintessential Northeastern -style that is unique to the region.    The wonderful weekend homes of Connecticut are second to none in the chic and practical manner that is a labor of love for those who don't think of buzzing when they hear the word WASP.  SUSANNA SALK - AUTHOR, STYLE EXPERT From Maine to Connecticut there is a laid back, but oh so proper approach to life that is a favored aesthetic for interior design fans - especially for weekend homes.  The style has a much broader appeal, think of all those lake front homes in Michigan, the beach houses on the outer banks of North Carolina - etc.  The design has universal appeal, but in the Northeast we own the look.   Truth be told - anyone who would breathe easier in Ralph Lauren khakis can relate and should own this book.

You know Susanna Salk from her regular appearances on the Today show and her weekly editorial contributions to 1stdibs.com.   Salk was also instrumental in shaping  the look of some of the most prestigious interior design publications in the 90's.    Susanna has the eye of an editor with the vision of an interior designer - a combination that sets her projects apart in her field.

With so many home furnishing books being published, it is refreshing to find one with a soul and a sense of continuity.   You can count on Susanna Salk to give you the complete package - not a random assortment of pictures showcasing rooms full of stuff!

WEEKEND RETREATS is in book stores now.  Click on the title in this article to buy the book now through Amazon!   Enjoy your weekends - and cross your fingers for some sun!
