Interiors in Detail
100 Contemporary Rooms
Encompassing everything from townhouses and farmsteads to mountain cabins and beach houses, this beautifully illustrated and comprehensive reference will inspire both first-time decorators and experienced interior designers.
Explore 100 exemplary private homes through 600 lavish images, from Manhattan and Marrakech to Madrid and Melbourne, with stops in Los Angeles, Miami, Hong Kong, Istanbul, London, Paris, Milan, and Rio de Janeiro—in styles ranging from Art Deco to modern.
This rich resource for the imagination is divided into ten chapters devoted to color, composition, setting, and other specific elements of interior style. Each chapter is illustrated with interiors designed by some of the most original and creative designers and architects working today: Bates Masi, Alexander Gorlin, Jonathan Adler, Rose Tarlow, Pierre Frey, Vicente Wolf, Tsao & McKown, Frederic Mechiche, Fearon Hay, David Collins, Winka Dubbeldam, and many more.
A double-page spread reveals the most spectacular space in each home, followed by a list of key concepts, numbered close-ups that highlight aspects of the design, and expert write-ups to explain how each element serves the design as a whole. With practical design ingredients, advice, and ideas throughout—from materials to furniture design, texture, pattern, and light—Interiors in Detail is an essential sourcebook for anyone seeking inspiration for his or her own space. No matter their tastes and aspirations, readers will find a style to catch the eye and engage the creative mind.
Praise for Interiors in Detail
"For each of the 100 contemporary rooms, a large image is followed by a spread of smaller images, each focused on an important contributing detail—a very instructive organization. The choice of projects is outstanding. In New York alone, we have a crisp, impeccably detailed duplex by Calvin Tsao and Zack McKown in addition to Vicente Wolf's own conjoined pair of apartments, continually revised. The selection also goes widely abroad with work from the U.K., where the author is based, Turkey, Morocco, Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, China, Indonesia, and Australia."
