Susanna Salk is a designer, stylist, stager as well as the author
of many best-selling design books. Her first was the
unexpected hit, "A Privileged Life, Celebrating WASP Style"
(Assouline) which stemmed from her upbringing on Boston's
North Shore. Her next books celebrated design, from the
personal weekend spaces of style makers in "Weekend
Retreats" to "Room for Children: Stylish Spaces for Sleep and
Play," which was the first book of its kind to explore design for
the junior set. "Be Your Own Decorator: Taking Cues and
Confidence from Today's Leading Designers" (Rizzoli)
followed, inspiring people to take design into their own hands.
Her 2013 debut of "C.Z. Guest: American Style Icon," (Rizzoli)
was the first pictorial book on the iconic style of C.Z. Guest.
"Decorate Fearlessly! Using Whimsy, Confidence and a Dash of
Surprise to Create Personal Spaces," (Rizzoli, 2014) explored
the power and panache rooms can have when decorated with
confidence instead of rules and "It's the Little Things" (Rizzoli,
2016) focused on the big power of the little moments in rooms.
