This book features a collection of interiors by 77 of the country's leading interior designers. Examining the different sources of inspiration for design, author Shane Reilly unveils the intricacies of how art and collected objects, furniture and fabric, a personality, concept, or color, and architecture can form the concept behind the look of a room. Through interviews with designers, the author explains the inspiration behind each room and how the designers manage to "pull it all together," the aspect of interior design that is so challenging for homeowners. Over 300 photographs of beautiful rooms enrich the reader's understanding of the interior design creative process. A focus on unique, high-quality pieces results in a celebration of high-end design, that all designers, homeowners, and fans of luxurious living will love.
