Summer Must Reads: Magical Rooms

Magical Rooms: Elements of Interior Design by Fawn Galli and Molly Fitzsimmons | Rizzoli

In her first book, Fawn Galli, a New York City-based designer known for her energetic and enchanting interiors, shares her favorite projects and close-kept design secrets for readers to create magical rooms of their own. Guided by her philosophy “A room should awaken the senses,” Galli’s goal is to cast a spell with her interior designs, creating memorable rooms full of discovery and inspiration. Galli’s work is celebrated for expressing the deepest desires of her clients through storytelling with layers of textiles, colors, and furnishings. In Magical Rooms, Galli shares her collaborative approach to show us how we can transform our own inspirations into great design.

Showcasing twelve distinctly different interiors- from a Brooklyn townhouse to a Greenwich Village apartment to an Upper West Side penthouse- Galli illustrates how she has achieved the finished look for each and breaks down her design principles into instructive teachings on scale, structure, balance, light, and color for readers to apply to their own homes.

Through the lens of her favorite rooms, Galli shares her own inspirations and tried-and-true tips, revealing how she distills her influences into five elements that she uses, in every project:

  • Nature: bring the outside in.
  • Clashing: a no-rules attitude.
  • Surrealism: subverting the rules of scale and composition.
  • Bohemian: worldly, chic, and eccentric.
  • Sparkle: the influence of disco sprinkled like fairy dust.

Full of inspiration, ideas, and real-world design solutions, Magical Rooms empowers us to dream and to create our own chic and personally meaningful interiors. Read an excerpt of the book here.
