Rooms celebrates some of the most luxurious and bold interiors around the globe and the creative sensibilities of the people who inspired them. Beautifully presented through the sumptuous photography of Derry Moore, the 12th Earl of Drogheda, who has photographed some of the world's most spectacular houses as well as some of the most notable personalities in their homes, this lavish publication captures the dramatic spirit of such vivid figures as famed early twentieth-century interior designer Elsie de Wolfe, contemporary design legend Renzo Mongiardino, and the legendary decorator Nancy Lancaster. Moore revolutionized interior photography with his technical acuity, his keen aesthetic eye and his impeccably good taste. This vision culminated in an inspired collaboration with Joseph Holtzman, founding editor in chief and art director of the celebrated and controversial magazine Nest, and one of the great tastemakers of our age. This long-awaited book features a remarkable array of spectacular interiors, ranging from Charleston, the famed haunt of the Bloomsbury group, to India's Falaknuma Palace, Pauline de Rothschild's London residence, and Chatsworth Hall, Derbyshire, the grandest of English country houses.

“Rooms is without a doubt the most eccentric décor book I’ve ever come across... I simply could not leave the store without it.” ~styleNorth
“For sheer visual indulgence, drink in Joseph Holtzman, Carl Skoggard, and Derry Moore’s Room (Rizzoli, $55), which included everything from Madeleine Castaing’s Parisian digs to an Irish pile of mesmerizing decay.” ~Home & Garden
“One of the odder books to come down the pike is Rooms (Rizzoli, $55), which collects the photography of Derry Moore and includes text by former Nest writer Carl Skoggard. Moore, also known as the 12th Earl of Drogheda, has been shooting interiors for more than 30 years, frequently for Architectural Digest. This book captures his fellow aristocrats in their frescoed, treasure-stuffed palaces, villas and chateaus around the globe. If you have friends or loved ones with a more-is-more take on decorating, this is the book for them.” ~The Philadelphia Inquirer
