Opening Interior Design Master Class is like sitting down to the best dinner party you ve ever attended. A classic in the making, the book features one hundred essays by America s top designers from established design legends to members of the new guard that explore in detail the process of designing a home, from the fundamentals to the finishing touches. Grouped by theme, the subjects range from practical considerations (Bunny Williams on Comfort, Etienne Coffinier and Ed Ku on Floor Plans) and details (Victoria Hagan on Light, Rose Tarlow on Books) to inspiration (Jeffrey Bilhuber on America and Char- lotte Moss on Couture) and style (Kelly Wearstler on Glamour, Thomas O Brien on Vintage Modern). Each piece is paired with images of the designer s work to illustrate the principles being discussed, annotated with informative captions. Unique in the quality of its contributors, this is a book that readers will refer to again and again for advice and inspiration, an invaluable resource for practical tips and thought-provoking design.
