Interior Design Master Class: 100 Lessons from America’s Finest Designers on the Art of Decoration

by Carl Dellatore (Editor)

This book showcases a wide range of interior design styles spanning classic to modern, as well as subjects as diverse as “Collecting,” “White,” “Portals,” and “Layering.” This book will be a landmark publication in the field and valuable and inspirational for home decorators and students of design and design professionals. Interior Design Master Class assembles the best designers’ work in progress to become the critical source of design knowledge. It’s kind of like attending a fabulous dinner party. The book contains one hundred essays from America’s top designersโ€”from veteran designers to new voicesโ€”exploring the design process from the ground up to the finish touches. Grouped by topic, the subjects are a mixture of practical details (Bunny Williams on “Comfort,” Etienne Coffinier and Ed Ku on “Floor Plans”) and inspiration (Jeffrey Bilhuber on “America”) and glamorous style (Kelly Wearstler on “Glamour,” Thomas O’Brien on “Vintage Modern”). All the pieces are illustrated with the designer’s images and with short annotations describing their concepts. Unique in the high calibre of its contributors, this is a book that readers will turn to time and time again for practical advice and insightful design.
