9780982358528: Italy of my Dreams

Of course, as a classicist, I pine for the days when everything was made entirely by hand, and so I look longingly back to the days before the Industrial Revolution. I'm under no illusions as to what our life would be like without technology, but I can dream, can't I? -Matthew White, in his introduction to Italy of My Dreams Italy of My Dreams: The Story of an American Designer's Real Life Passion for Italian Style is the expansive culmination of what began as the childhood pursuit of tiny bits of Eden in Amarillo, Texas and developed into a deep personal connection with the art and architecture of Italy. Full of theatrical, bold exteriors, and interiors adorned with classical flourishes, each featured project is a unique testament to the designer's appreciation of Italian design. Worn reclaimed beams complement sweeping Venetian doors, lush rooftop gardens recall the Southern Italian countryside-these are modern spaces steeped in an historic sensibility, yet free of replication or pastiche. While the locations change-from California Villas to a Palazzo in New York City-the designer's passion remains true, making Italy of My Dreams an intimate inspirational celebration of Italian style.

About the Author:

Matthew White is an American interior designer whose work has been featured in nearly every American shelter magazine. In 2003 he joined forces with Frank Webb, launching the design firm White Webb. He serves as President of the Board of Save Venice Inc., and currently lives in New York City.

Review:

Italy of My Dreams is an intimate trip from White's first villa to his Palladian country house in New York's Hudson River Valley.

I can assure you this is one for the bookshelf! (Ronda Carman, All the Best Blog)

[Matthew White's] new book is as much a personal photo album as it is a historical documentation of Italianate design...a personal, almost cinematic tour. (1stdibs.com Required Reading)
