This book can be thought of as a collection of the important elements in 20th Century design.  Taking cues from major taste-makers of the era, Jennifer has corralled a plethora of styles, products, and ideas into one place, offering up not only interesting information on the history of certain trends, but also giving useful decorating advice and helpful tips on how to implement them into modern living.

In With The Old is sure to be an essential reference for anyone wanting to learn about the elements of chic interiors and stylish living.  You may even come across an idea that sparks an entirely new scheme for your home or next decorating project.
