Ted Kennedy Watson's 'Style & Simplicity: An A to Z Guide to Living a More Beautiful Life'

Shop owner and style savant Ted Kennedy Watson releases his first book this month, Style & Simplicity: An A to Z Guide to Living a More Beautiful Life (Sterling, $17.95). It’s a primer of sorts, packed as full of tips as his stores are stocked with tools to achieve it. The book, which is a perfect gift for the interior décor-lover in your life, includes advice on displaying collections—from vintage dominoes to hotel silver—and how-tos on arranging flowers and creating a well-stocked home bar. “Living in the moment and seeing all the beauty that surrounds us is a big emphasis,” Watson says. “This book is a longtime dream realized.” Available at bookstores and Watson Kennedy Fine Living (Pike Place Market, 86 Pine St.; 206.443.6281) and Watson Kennedy Fine Home (downtown, 1022 First Ave.; 206.652.8350); watsonkennedy.com.
