Suzanne Kasler is known for her classically inspired rooms, pretty palettes, and comfortable spaces. She brings Southern charm, European sensibility, and a respect for architectural details to her interiors. Her neutral palette, spiced with hits of color, creates warm spaces that are elegant yet inviting. Inspired by fashion, Kasler uses a scarf as a throw, adds grosgrain or satin banding to the bottom of a chair cover, accents draperies with Chanel-like piped borders, or embellishes a bed frame with delicate handpainted patterns. It is these exquisite haute couture details that drive her design aesthetic. Kasler's mélange of antiques, midcentury pieces, and modern furniture makes her layered interiors attractive and livable. Lavishly illustrated, this beautiful volume showcases a range of Kasler's projects, from a luxurious Georgian mansion in Atlanta's Buckhead to a sophisticated farmhouse in Tennessee and a beach house in Watersound, Florida. Offering a wealth of original design ideas that are refreshing and full of verve, Timeless Style is a welcome addition to any library of interior design books.

"This book features the work of Lauren Rottet over the past fifteen years and includes the interiors of houses, apartments, hotels, and design studio offices in the wide range of styles at which Rottet Studio is adept, from elegant Modernism to Beaux-Arts classicism. Rottet-designed spaces are artfully curated living/working spaces that transcend their formal use and become places in which people ponder, experience, and are inspired. These environments, though immediately beautiful to the eye, are not meant to be one-moment impacts and instead are designed to reveal themselves over time. Above all, her elegant, contemporary designs, like pieces of art, emphasize transparency and light" -- Provided by publisher.

Michael S. Smith's first collection of new interiors work in seven years. Appearing at a seminal point in Michael Smith's life and career, The Curated House is also his most personal book, tracing the origins and influences of his design philosophy in depth and presenting a substantial offering of new projects. In the first section of the book, illustrated with images of Smith's own dramatic Los Angeles house, his spare desert retreat, and his ornate Manhattan apartment, Smith explores his California roots and explains how they still infuse so much of his work; the importance of California's own deep traditions; and how his recent work in Spain has influenced him through its architecture, fabrics, and history. Smith reviews the constants of his interiors, what is integral to his style and why, and how they can work for the reader: from the forms that repeat themselves to the layering of fabrics and patterns, the use of subtle colors, and the idea of comfort in every room. The second part of the book offers case studies of Smith's most recent interiors work, including a high-style Manhattan pied-�-terre, an airy London townhouse, a Montana mountain retreat, and a sophisticated Malibu beach house. Substantive and arresting, The Curated House will be Smith's most comprehensive book to date, and essential to those aspiring to his refined, popular style.
