"Great design doesn't exist in a vacuum, and" Designers on Designers "proves that behind every bright idea is a startling inspiration. Susan Gray lets the world's top designers tell their own stories about who and what influenced their work. The result is funny and poignant, wry and informed. And truly inspired." -- Mitchell Owens, ELLE Decor "The personal inspiration we gain from others in our field makes for fascinating and thought-provoking reading. I love seeing what my colleagues have learned from others; my own experience has been expanded by their insights."-- Michael Graves, Architect and Product Designer In these pages, you will discover how Orlando Diaz-Azcuy's admiration for the work of John Dickinson led to his firm's perennial quest for design perfection. Married designers Ashley and Allegra Hicks disclose an intimate view of Ashley's father, David Hicks, Britain's most celebrated interior designer -- who was so obsessed with design that he checked himself out of the hospital while dying because of the overabundance of plastic and the nurses' unappealing apparal. For contrast, Cuban-born, multi-talented Manhattan designer Vincente Wolf offers a different and distinctive view of David Hicks's great appeal. You will share Bunny Williams's appreciation of Sister Parish and that designer's comfortable, timeless, and witty sense of style. New York society decorator Thomas Jayne gives you new insight into the Edith Wharton and Ogden Codman classic "The Decoration of Houses," still used as a textbook a century after its original publication. Open this book and meet masters of design -- Billy Baldwin, Donald Deskey, Dorothy Draper, Elsie de Wolfe, Philippe Starck, Michael Taylor, Rose Cumming -- and their admirers Thomas Britt, William Sofield, Carleton Varney, Suzanne Rheinstein, John Stefanidis, and more than a dozen other great names of interior design. With color, wit, and passion, "Designers on Designers" sensuously captures the essence, soul, and inspiration of the mastery of interior design. On designers and by designers, it is a sumptuous work that architects, amateur decorators, and designers themselves will be powerless to resist.

An indispensable source of inspiration and insightful advice for anyone undertaking home design or redecoration on any scale or budget. Kelly Hoppen is a world-renowned designer who has pioneered a simple yet opulent style that has won her numerous accolades and awards for her stunning interiors. While her designs are best known for symmetry, straight lines, and neutral color, she also pioneered softening strict minimalism with rounded, feminine forms, splashes of color, and fusing vintage and modern pieces for greater depth and patina. Her latest book is the summation of her twenty-five-year career in which she brings together all the strands of her trademark style and offers a unified vision of creating great interiors. The heart of this highly visual and inspirational book is a room-by-room master class, which includes checklists and expert advice for approaching interior design no matter the shape, size, or unique hurdles of a room. A combination of illustrative sketches, mood boards, and evocative photographs illustrates how to turn a concept into reality. Design decisions and dilemmas are covered, from assessing a room, reconfiguring space, and dealing with awkward layouts to planning lighting, choosing materials, and positioning furniture. The book features unique editorial elements and design devices throughout: "inspiration boxes," specific problems and solutions, and a special feature called "blank canvas transformed," which shows a sample space designed in several ways highlighting the effect of different styles, moods, and approaches.

In English Decoration, the acclaimed London-based architectural and interior designer Ben Pentreath presents a survey of the best of the English style. “English decoration is making a bit of a comeback these days, and Ben Pentreath is partly to thank—not just because he’s finessed the young Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Kensington Palace flat.” Architectural Digest Eighteen homes, many of which have never been previously photographed, provide the source material for architectural and interior designer Ben Pentreath’s wide-ranging investigation of the classic English look. The houses include Ben’s homes in London and West Dorset, alongside those of Earls and artists, writers and architects, book designers and gardeners. The book is arranged room by room and Entrance Halls, Living Rooms, Kitchens and Dining Rooms, Bedrooms, and Bathrooms are each considered in turn, together with simple Rooms of Utility and spectacular Rooms of Display. The book begins with an essay on the English style in decoration and ends with an essential style directory, helping you to achieve the look wherever you live.

Instagram star and founder of Inspire Me! Home Décor shares her creative and elegant interior design secrets so you can create a glamorous yet cozy home without spending a fortune. Farah Merhi launched Inspire Me! Home Decor in 2012 as a creative outlet during a transitional time in her life. Farah was about to graduate college and planned to attend law school. Going through the motions and feeling unfulfilled in her career choice, she built up the courage to face her truth. Taking time off to figure herself out, Farah, through a remodel project in her home, had her “ah-ha” moment. The importance of taking care of your home, specifically in the way you clean, organize, and design, was instilled in her at a young age, but she didn’t realize how much of an impact her upbringing had until she owned her own home. Farah knew she had found her passion and calling, and was determined to inspire home owners to live their best lives in their homes. Farah believes that taking care of your home is essential to your peace of mind. Her design style is elegant and glamorous but infused with warmth and coziness, creating a welcoming feel with neutral color palletes, soft and inviting fabrics, and exquisite design details that can work in any room. She believes you can make a statement without sacrificing an inviting feel to your rooms. There is no right and wrong when it comes to designing your home and Farah encourages you to focus on the overall look and feel you desire, and her tips and advice will help guide you through the process. Starting with her most frequently asked questions about paint color versus wallpaper, lighting and rugs, home organization, and of course styling, Farah walks you through every room in the house from the mudroom to the kitchen and kids’ bedrooms. Along the way, she includes quick seasonal updates on a budget, suggested routines for maintaining your space, and her unique reward system, which includes small styling vignettes around your home. Woven throughout are Farah’s personal stories that will feel like you’re getting design advice from a close friend. Everyone deserves to walk into a beautifully decorated home every day—now you can, with the inspiration and practical tips in Inspire Your Home.
