With over 400 rooms organized by designer from A-Z, the book goes beyond decorators, designers, and architects to highlight exquisite interiors designed by fashion designers, artists, style icons, and film stars who have made a unique contribution to the world of interior design.
Covering work from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present day, the book features everything from extraordinary chateaux, stunning town houses, and luxury penthouses – to desert ranches, beach houses, and tiny jewel-like apartments in more than 25 countries.
This gorgeous volume includes the “greats” of interior design, such as Elsie de Wolfe, Billy Baldwin, and Colefax & Fowler, alongside contemporary stars including Anouska Hempel, Kelly Hoppen, and Karim Rashid.
Noteworthy homes include those of fashion designers Bill Blass, Pierre Cardin, Gianni Versace, and Coco Chanel, as well as artists Pablo Picasso, Georgia O’Keeffe, Cy Twombly, and Peggy Guggenheim.
