Interior designer Manger and Galerie magazine editor in chief Terrebonne have partnered to assemble an education in haute couture home interiors in book form. Each featured home has well-designed rooms with furnishings that are elegantly and thoughtfully placed to meet the personalities of Manger’s clients, who hire him to lovingly excavate beauty in their prized spaces. Homes from a small pied-à-terre in Paris to expansive summer homes are included. Readers will also learn the reasons for the selected items for each room, including art created by Keith Haring and David Hockney. Vivid photos accompany each featured home, along with rich explanations on the graceful art of interior decorating.
VERDICT Interesting and enjoyable, this book is a welcome addition to art and design collections.
