A Book List from Jeffrey Bilhuber

In addition to being an acclaimed interior designer, Jeffrey Bilhuber is an engaging and entertaining storyteller. We had the chance to hear some of his stories at a recent face-to-face at his office on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. The conversation ranged from an unusual fiction choice on the book list he sent us to why he is getting his preschool son a subscription to National Geographic magazine to what his own library looks like and the thinking behind his most recent book, The Way Home: Reflections on American Beauty (Rizzoli International Publications, 2011).
