9780789327154: Rooms to Inspire in the City: Stylish Interiors for Urban Living

A follow-up to the successful series Rooms to Inspire, this inspirational design guide presents a selection of novel urban interiors by the leading interior designers of our time.

City living evokes cosmopolitan sophistication and artistic expression. This presentation of trend-setting ways to design residences by leading tastemakers such as Muriel Brandolini, Peter Dunham, Jonathan Adler, and Mary McDonald, shows an impressive mix of styles—from eclectic and exotic to neo-traditional. The variety of beautifully photographed dwellings—from townhouses and apartments to lofts in such vibrant locales as New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Paris, London, and Jakarta—were chosen for their fresh design perspectives. This inspiring medley ranges from Carolina Irving’s Upper East Side–chic New York apartment with custom molding influenced by Gothic architecture to Robert Couturier’s elegant residence with curved walls, decorated by Paulin Paris. Universal design issues fundamental to living quarters are addressed, including color and comfort, as well as innovative approaches to tight spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms. Sections devoted to bookshelves, home entertaining, and tabletop display, along with a useful resource list, complete this guide to city style. For professionals and novices alike, Rooms to Inspire in the City encourages us to decorate our urban living spaces with panache.

Review:

"...filled, as you would expect, with engaging prose and glorious images. The book is a veritable primer on how to celebrate the urban experience. Those living in the suburbs will want to race out...and locate a city dwelling; such is the allure cast by this beguiling monograph.” ~1stdibs.com

"Why We Love It: Part I, 'City Rooms,' illustrates the possibilities of urban decor; then, Part II, 'City Decorating,' offers stylish solutions for issues such as storing and displaying books, city kitchens and entertaining in the city." ~Luxe
