Bella Figura Milan's sumptuous modernist hallways First impressions count, especially in Milano. In this unprecedented photographic journey, editor Karl Kolbitz opens the door to 140 of the city's most sumptuous entrance halls, captivating in their diversity and splendor. These vibrant Milanese entryways, until now hidden away behind often restrained facades, are revealed as dazzling examples of Italian modernism, mediating public and private space with vivid configurations of color and form, from floors of juxtaposed stones to murals of minimalist geometry. The collection spans buildings from 1920 to 1970 and showcases the work of some of the city's most illustrious architects and designers, including , and Luigi Caccia Dominioni, as well as non-pedigreed architecture of equal impact and interest. The photographs for the publication were exclusively created by the Delfino Sisto Legnani, Paola Pansini and Matthew Billings, each evoking the entryways with individual sensibility and a stylistic interplay of detail shots - such as stones, door handles, and handrails - with larger architectural views. The images are accompanied by outstanding written contributions from Penny Sparke, Fabrizio Ballabio, Lisa Hockemeyer, Daniel Sherer, Brain Kish, and Grazia Signori, together bring a wealth of architecture, design, and natural stone expertise to guide the reader through the art-historical, social, and technical intricacies of the ingressi. As much an architectural city guide as an architectural study, the book provides the exact address and an annotated Milan map for all featured entryways, as well as the architect name and date of construction. In the well-documented realm of 20th-century Italian design, Kolbitz has stepped over the threshold and delivered a brand new area of enquiry in Milanese modernism. With the rigor of its multi-faceted research, poised photography, and breadth of its featured hallways, this is an invigorating new reference work and an inside look at the city's design DNA across high to low architecture.

This New York Times bestselling book from interior designer Mark D. Sikes is a celebration of American style today, showcasing chic and accessible ideas for every home. Modern and unfussy, Mark D. Sikes s interiors are classic takes on California indoor/outdoor living, with natural fibers and crisp coloration, informed and influenced by the fashion world where he began his career. In eight chapters, he explores approachable, stylish looks, from "Blue and White Forever," which features indigos, stripes, batiks, and wicker in casual rooms such as porches and pool houses; to "Timeless Neutrals," presenting semiformal rooms filled with chinoiserie, gilt, glass, mirrors, banquettes, and French chairs; to "Garden Greens," featuring happy, casual family rooms and kitchens inspired by the garden with treillage woodwork, rattan, and cotton. There are also "Beautiful Brights," colorful rooms that are eclectic, layered, and fun, with chintz, florals, and Middle Eastern influences; and "Sun Faded Hues," rustic coastal rooms with weathered fabrics and furniture. Each chapter presents light-filled images of the designer s looks and offers the reader inspiration and advice. As famed film director Nancy Meyers writes in the book s foreword, this is a book that shows design lovers "how classic can look fresh, how style and comfort go hand-in-hand."

The first book on the work of a designer whose refined classical interiors are widely desired and emulated as the epitome of French style. Honored as one of the top designers by all the international design magazines and universally admired by design editors, Jean-Louis Deniot is in demand. His updated classical approach now graces interiors in Paris, the French countryside, Moscow, India, New York, Chicago, L.A., and beyond—and his legacy is already being compared to that of design greats such as Jacques Grange and Alberto Pinto. Deniot is an architect first, ensuring that the interior architecture of his rooms is harmonious before giving a neoclassical approach to the decor. He brings education, logic, and design history to his work, with one eye looking at the most refined style of French eighteenth century and one eye on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His mix is highly individual and includes contemporary art and custom-made furniture, yet his rooms always look comfortable and are never overly formal or trendy. This book demonstrates a new, sophisticated classical style that is changing the scene for international design and offering inspiration and ideas to decorators, homeowners, and antiques enthusiasts.

Skillfully partnered vintage finds and fabrics create French-style elegance and comfort. A Romance with French Living provides a glimpse into Carolyn Westbrook's world, where treasured antiques and vintage finds, perfectly faded fabrics and timeworn furniture blend, seemingly effortlessly, in superb interiors that are both relaxing and chic, inspired by French style. Part One--French-inspired Interiors-showcases Carolyn's love for designing interiors, decorating, and creating relaxed and welcoming rooms. Essentially French shows how to adapt classic French style to suit modern-day living, and this ethos is carried through to the chapters on A Cottage in The Country and Urban Farmhouse. Part Two-It's All in the Detail--concentrates on adding those all-important finishing touches to a room, whether it's antique leatherbound books, cherished items gathered on oversea travel, or swathes of Carolyn's much-loved white linen, from vintage French linen bedsheets finding a new life as tablecloths and curtains to pristine bed linen and smart upholstery. The final section of the book focuses on entertaining and celebrations, from a country barn party to a bridal shower and an intimate family wedding at Carolyn's own home, The Oaks Plantation in Texas.

The internationally acclaimed architect's grounds of his Hamptons estate on Long Island, New York--a lush garden oasis masterfully transformed over the course of two decades. Peter Marino's quintessentially American landscape is a combination of organizational rigor and a joyful informality in the use of plant materials. The gardens feature carefully curated plants, trees, and flowers on twelve acres including a "color wheel" of purple, pink, red, and yellow gardens, evergreen trees, an apple orchard, a formal rose garden, and nearly forty works of art by François-Xavier and Claude Lalanne. Seasonal floral highlights include the colorful blooms of azaleas in the late spring, roses in June, and hydrangeas in the summer. This book shows the landscape in different seasons and moods, captured in both a laid-back grandeur-- sunny vistas, moonlit moments, the beauty of natural elements and sublime works of art--and in a moody atmosphere, when the dramatic light after a summer storm imbues the garden with a romantic haze. The garden is presented as a picturesque example of a first-rate contemporary landscape and as a dreamlike Eden.

Including bedrooms, baths, outdoor spaces, dining rooms, dens, and even children's rooms and foyers from over 130 of the most charming and trendy boutique hotels across the globe (from India to Brazil, Thailand, Tuscany, Hollywood, and East Hampton)--Hotel Chic at Home is a dazzling encyclopedia of interior design ideas to make a functional everyday space into a dreamy escape. What if ordinary life could feel more like vacation? Dinner might be outdoors, for a view that you've journeyed hundreds of miles to see. A room might transport you to another, more genteel era. A serene moment might be found anywhere, from a swinging hammock, to a luxurious bathroom oasis, or an intimate corner with a velvet wing chair. Travel and design blogger Sara Bliss shows readers how the experiences of adventure, freedom, sophistication, and calm found in the world's most unique hotels can be recreated on a personal scale, almost anywhere. After all, the most successful boutique hotels have gained their competitive edge by doing just the same--reflecting their rustic or exotic settings without resorting to "Disney-or-Dubai" clichés; enhancing dark spaces with bold pattern, color, and lighting; maximizing small spaces with smart furniture layout; and taking advantage of creative ideas from some of the best interior designers working today. Bliss provides practical takeaways about how to extract one or two elements from each room, with tips for any style and budget. A symmetrical arrangement of mirrors creates a show-stopping backdrop for a bed, as at the Viceroy Santa Monica; an oversized striped carpet can draw the eye straight out to the view, as at the Grace Bay Club in Turks and Caicos; classic subway tile becomes a graphic statement when arranged diagonally, as at Hotel Bachaumont in Paris; and a simple pattern painted on standard-issue concrete floors can create a durable, playful take on an outdoor rug, as at The Sixty SoHo in New York City. Interviews with eight of today's top names in interior design, including Michele Bonan, Alessandra Branca, Christiane Lemieux, Joe Lucas, Jason Nixon and John Loecke, Mary McDonald, John Robshaw, and Tilton Fenwick reveal what they love about their favorite hotels around the globe--an added bonus to the pleasure of picking up Hotel Chic at Home: a celebration of travel, of design, and of the immense possibilities of creating something inspired by both, but all your own.
