Domestic Bliss

Simple Ways to Add Style to Your Life

The low-stress, high-fun way to entertain, shop, decorate and indulge your way to domestic nirvana.

What is domestic bliss? It's bringing the office party home just because you have fresh mint and a secret mojito recipe. It's making your houseguest feel like he's at the Ritz even when he's crashing on your sofa. It's retreating home after a harried day and taking solace in a perfectly placed flea market find.

Home is the new hot spot and in Domestic Bliss, London's favorite young style expert makes all your nesting fantasies come true. This blueprint for domestic bliss will work whether your posse is coming to your castle or you're planning an evening for one. With wit and savoir faire, Konig shows how to:

  • Mix family hand-me-downs and new treasures
  • Tackle clutter with simple solutions
  • Turn your world around even when you feel fat, lonely and hate all your clothes and furniture.

Domestic Bliss is about creating moments of perfection in an otherwise chaotic world.
