Commune was established in Los Angeles in 2004 by four like-minded soulsâ€”Roman Alonso, Steven Johanknecht, Pamela Shamshiri, and Ramin Shamshiriâ€” with a common mission: to enhance life through design and to blur the lines between disciplines, eras, and styles. California is for those who refuse to conform and who live for freedom of expression, indoor/outdoor living, and that golden sunshine glinting off the waves of the Pacific. Commune perfectly captures this spirit and embodies a new California style that freely mixes old and new in its layered, highly personal interiors that embrace color, pattern, and texture. This book is the first monograph of Communeâ€™s work, featuring its designs for private residences, hotels, commercial spaces, and restaurants, as well as the works they specially commission from virtually everyone in the artisan craftsman movement in California today.
An exquisitely photographed collection of the great houses and mansions of the South. In the tradition of Rizzoliâ€™s Historic Houses of the Hudson Valley and Great Houses of New England, Great Houses of the South features a stunning array of newly photographed homes that range over three centuries and are distinctive examples of the architecture of the region. While in popular imagination the "Southern Style" is embodied in the classic Southern plantation house with its Greek Revival detailingâ€”its stately white columns, wide porch, and symmetrical shapeâ€”the houses themselves are much more various and engaging, as shown in this important volume. From stately Stanton Hall of Natchez, Mississippi, one of the most magnificent and palatial residences of antebellum America; to Longue Vue House and Gardens of New Orleans, the luxurious Classical Revivalâ€“style home of Edgar and Edith Stern; to the fabled Biltmore of Asheville, North Carolina, the opulent French Renaissanceâ€“inspired chateau and Gilded Age estate of George Washington Vanderbilt, this lavish volume is comprehensive in scope and a landmark work of enduring interest to homeowners, architects, architecture historians, and all those who love fine architecture.
Think pink! House Beautiful's definitive guide presents all the fabulous and unexpected ways you can use this rosy hue anywhere in the homeâ€”in the bedroom, bathroom, even the kitchen. Filled with inspiring quotes from professional designers, alluring photos, designer mood boards, and advice on selecting paint, it's organized by how much pink is deployed in any roomâ€”from "That Touch of Pink" to "A Profusion of Pink."

The first book on the work of a designer whose refined classical interiors are widely desired and emulated as the epitome of French style. Honored as one of the top designers by all the international design magazines and universally admired by design editors, Jean-Louis Deniot is in demand. His updated classical approach now graces interiors in Paris, the French countryside, Moscow, India, New York, Chicago, L.A., and beyondâ€”and his legacy is already being compared to that of design greats such as Jacques Grange and Alberto Pinto. Deniot is an architect first, ensuring that the interior architecture of his rooms is harmonious before giving a neoclassical approach to the decor. He brings education, logic, and design history to his work, with one eye looking at the most refined style of French eighteenth century and one eye on the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His mix is highly individual and includes contemporary art and custom-made furniture, yet his rooms always look comfortable and are never overly formal or trendy. This book demonstrates a new, sophisticated classical style that is changing the scene for international design and offering inspiration and ideas to decorators, homeowners, and antiques enthusiasts.

In his latest book, Jeffrey Bilhuber distills thirty years of expertise and creative inspiration designing beautiful and brilliantly modern rooms. Presenting a diverse range of decoratorâ€™s most recent and important work from around the country, the book is centered around 30 signature statements by Bilhuberâ€”pithy and insightful bedrock principles and axioms that have fueled designerâ€™s process. Rounding out these statements Sara Ruffin Costello, the highly regarded writer and editor, sheds light on Bilhuberâ€™s inimitable style through charming anecdotes and bright, rich descriptions, revealing a decorator at the top of his profession. Anchoring the ideas that drive each project, the statements represent different angles from which to appreciate the decoratorâ€™s vision and mastery of his craft. Some are broad and philosophical: â€œWhatâ€™s liberating is to be fearlessâ€Â and â€œModernity is not about a new material, itâ€™s about how you navigate your way through the world.â€And others, specific and practical:â€œItâ€™s easy to get white wrong. It takes talent to get it rightâ€ and â€œItâ€™s powerfully important to sit at the table and talk to each other.â€ Capturing the breadth and beauty of Bilhuberâ€™s work in city townhouses and rambling country houses throughout the country in New York City, Palm Beach, Aspen, and San Francisco, each project reveals itself to be a standard-bearer of great style, reflecting the decoratorâ€™s optimistic and classically informed point of view.
