When you think about Dallas interiors, you probably think cow skulls, antlers and a room full of leather, but you know what? We’re more than that. We’re also modern, contemporary, traditional and transitional. Not every home is a smaller scale Bass Pro Shop and not every home is a buy it, ship it, set it Rooms To Go style either.

In Dallas, we like fashion and big hair and accessories. Our houses are an extension of that. If you find yourself on a mission to makeover your space, but aren’t sure where to start, start right here with a list of some of our favorite home decorating books available on Amazon. We did our best to get a little of this and a little of that so pop your bunny slippers on the ottoman and dig in because it’s a fun read.

French Refreshed, Betty Lou Phillips

Price: $49.99

The Book: Simple and sophisticated, French Refreshed, is exactly that, a fresh look at Parisian décor in a modern era. Throughout the pages, author Betty Lou Phillips shows us how to pair down to the absolute elegant essentials.

What Buyers Are Saying: Who cares? Listen to this sample from Phillips herself. “And so, with gentrification nudging not only Parisians but also those living in large cities elsewhere, we open the window to a world awash in options…” AWASH IN OPTIONS. Want more reasons to love her? She lives in Dallas and SHE’S BEEN ON OPRAH.
