Eric Cohler, known as the "Mixmaster" for his expert combinations of high and low, creates extremely chic-yet-livable spaces. His monograph, Cohler on Design, was released this past fall. The volume is full of beautiful imagery, of course, but it dives a little deeper into the mind of this expert than the average home tome. Insights into Cohler's inspirations offer some sense of how his mind works. For instance, Edith Wharton's all-encompassing love of writing drove Cohler to design a room based on her library. The billowy fabric of Jeanne-Claude and Christo's 2005 installation The Gates led to curtains instead of traditional doors on bathroom cabinetry. I loved getting that inside peek into how Cohler translates high art into functional, beautiful spaces for his clients. Get even more information on the book here.
