Dust jacket protected in a paper-backed Mylar sleeve. Pages pristine and intact. Replete with printed color photographs. Beautiful interior design guide that instructs readers on how to create "warm, timeless" interiors that are "spare yet warm, layered yet clean, current yet timeless." Central to authors Chris Mitchell and Pilar Guzman's ideas for achieving this aesthetic are combining modern design with "well-worn materials--in particular, white oak, brass, and bridle leather, all three of which become richer, mellower, and burnished with patina as they age." Most of this book features printed photos of interior designs, furniture, light fixtures, decorations, and other design aspects that readers can use as inspirations, some of which are from Mitchell's and Guzman's own residences. Text is concise but informative and includes recommendations on subjects such as which colors to use and how to utilize textiles and brass and wooden decor. In back is a list, accompanied by printed photos, showing examples of some of the furniture, light fixtures, and other home furnishings used by the authors.
