Lili Diallo is definitely someone you’d want to invite over for decorating advice. As an interior stylist, it’s her job to make spaces look their absolute best for photo shoots, and her work has appeared in "Domino," "Real Simple," "Town & Country," "Glamour," and "Everyday with Rachael Ray," as well as on several popular websites (including "Apartment Therapy"). She also lends her eye to private clients, helping them find their "design story" by focusing on colors, textures, and objects that make them feel at home.

People just see pretty pictures in magazines, but don’t have a clear idea of what it took to get there, and that’s what I tried to put across in the book." We talked with Wolf and asked him to take us through several of the rooms, giving us his insights on how to work with space, color, and accessories.Continue reading
