On My Bookshelf: Designers at Home: Personal Reflections on Stylish Living
Posted by Kevin Sharkey
If you have ever wondered about the home of your favorite interior designer, then Ronda Rice Carman has brought your dreams to life. In her new book, Designers at Home: Personal Reflections on Stylish Living, Ronda ventures into the homes of 50 renowned designers. Readers are transported around the globe to discover what inspires leading figures in interior design. Immerse yourself in the luxurious detail of Martyn Lawrence Bullard’s Hollywood home or discover the bright, Pop artwork in Suzanne and Christopher Sharp’s Notting Hill Victorian townhouse.
1 Suzanne and Christopher Sharp love adding eclectic layers of patterns and prints as well as bold color combinations and shocking juxtapositions.
2 This Sag Harbor kitchen is airy and open, perfect for inspiring fresh, summery dinner menus.
3 This wall of hooks in Eric Hughes and Nathan Turner's Malibu home is both practical and decorative, and wards off clutter.
4 This comfortable room with built-in book shelves and Moroccan poufs was designed for lounging, but design elements from all over the world give it a cultured feel.
5 Bunny Williams' beautiful Connecticut home brings nature inside; her love of gardening is reflected in light, roomy spaces that incorporate fragrant shrubs and plants.
6 The varied collection of oil paintings and portraits in Jay Jeffers' San Francisco dining room blend contemporary with antique and lend an eclectic and somewhat quirky air to the space.
The foreword is written by none other than Martha Stewart. Martha emphasizes the importance of the home as a refuge and the ways that each designer defines personal style. $45, Rizzoli
