About this title


John Saladino is one of the world’s most respected interior designers. His design principles are rooted in classical architecture, yet he creates interiors and gardens with a pleasing, contemporary feel admired the world over. He believes that, no matter where you live, it is possible to make the home feel lika a sanctuary, the garden like Arcadia, and in this, his first book, he reveals his design secrets.

Dividing the book into two parts, he first addresses perennial design problems: how to link a series of rooms so that each flows naturally into the next; how to use accessories to give an illusion of space; how to make the most of natural light; how to use color to best advantage; and how to pare away unnecessary details to create order and balance. Each chapter deals with examples from both the home and the garden (which Saladino treats as indoor and outdoor rooms). Throughout the book, he looks at world-famous interiors and gardens (from Pompeii and Palladio in Italy to Syon House in London and Lincoln Center in New York) and cleverly translates their schemes and principles into practical design solutions. The second part of the book focuses on some of Saladino’s most impressive creations around the world. Sumptuously illustrated with over 180 color photographs and drawings, Style by Saladino is a thrilling exploration of this masterful designer’s unique sensibility.

About the Author:

John Saladino set up his architectural and interior design practice Saladino Inc. in 1972, and his furniture company in 1986. He has won numerous design and furniture awards and is on the board of directors for the John Soane Museum in London.
