An American expat searches vibrant cities and quiet pueblos for the essence of Mexican style

Revealing the richly visual and cultural details that are the essence of Mexican style, design editor and photographer Newell Turner has done for Mexican design what legendary culinary pioneer Diana Kennedy did for Mexican food.

Elegantly organized around nine decisive decorative periods that have shaped México’s unique design journey to the present day, Turner establishes a visual dialogue with the reader that beautifully captures the depth and subtleties of the country’s aesthetic legacy. Ushered behind the walls, gates, and doors of private México, we are introduced to an intriguing world of interior design and architecture — including the highly developed civilizations pre-dating the arrival of Columbus; the Spanish colonial arts; the dynamic response to global movements such as Art Deco and Surrealism; and a rich survey of modernist and contemporary work. Woven intricately into this history is Turner’s own story of discovering the distinctive soul of México, where — in the spirit of memoirs in which a traveler discovers another country he finds himself along the way.

In this vivid volume of color, texture and contrasts, Turner examines the extraordinary range of Mexican design with the insight of a true devotee. The breathtaking photography shows how every room, courtyard, loggia — and even a chair, or an arrangement of flowers — are part of a rich design heritage. Turner spent his magazine career chronicling American style, and now his unerring eye has turned to México. We are invited to join him on a voyage as he explores the homes of Mexicans and other expats who share his passion for authentic México — both past and present — and are inspired by the country’s complex history and stunning landscapes.

In almost no other region of Europe is the connection to nature so pronounced as in the Nordic countries – beginning with the extreme differences between the long, dark winter nights and the long days of summer. At the same time, the dovetailing of state of the art technology with the contemporary realization of tradition is a matter of course in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland.

Thanks to the creativity and relish for experiment of the architecture and design scene, a many facetted Scandinavian design consciousness has emerged; the many trends that were initiated have created enthusiasm around the world. The projects presented in this volume show the unique and surprising design concepts for residential space, restaurants, stores and offices.

An introduction to the Japanese art of living of Ogata through the vision of its founder, Shinichiro Ogata.

As an expert in the cultures and traditions of ancient Japan, Shinichiro Ogata has dedicated himself to a contemporary reinvention of this solemn yet simple ideal of a harmonious life.

Beautifully printed, this elegant volume provides a comprehensive overview of Japanese art of living, with chapters on tea, cuisine, wagashi (traditional confections), crafts, fragrance, and floral art. Readers are invited to consider a new outlook, nourished by millennia-old traditions and materialized through exquisite objects and sensorial experiences. Each section explores the details and innovative possibilities for deeply rooted traditions as well as the social and aesthetic rules that sustain them, while beautiful photographs showcase Ogata’s signature design as well as its flagship Paris space. Written in the first person, Shinichiro Ogata’s text offers a deeper understanding of his creative process and unique aesthetic vision. This is an exquisite book for aficionados of Japanese refinement and craftsmanship.

Видавництво: Rizzoli

This book showcases the unique vision and work of Olajumoke Adenowo, hailed as "Africa’s starchitect" and Africa's most influential female architect.

Olajumoke Adenowo is a renowned Nigerian architect who heads her own architecture and interior design firm, AD Consulting, which she founded in Lagos in 1994. A gifted student, at the age of 14 she enrolled at Obafemi Awolowo University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science (Honours Architecture) by the age of 19, and then completed her Master of Science (Architecture) in 1991.

Adenowo's intense interest in architecture and design emerged from her visits to Europe and throughout the world with her parents as a young child, as well as while living on campus at the Obafemi Awolowo University in the ancient city of Ile-Ife in Osun State, Nigeria, where her parents were professors. Having adopted a global perspective from an early age but firmly rooted in her heritage throughout her career, she is uniquely positioned to directly cultivate the kind of best practice African contemporary architecture that leverages ancestral knowledge and methods from within the continent itself.

Adenowo’s thesis of “Neo-Heritage” envisions a new ideation framework which leverages on African heritage design principles that will contribute to international solutions in the field of architecture.

About the Author:

Olajumoke Adenowo is a multiple award-winning architect who has been described by CNN and The Guardian as "Africa's starchitect”. She has her own boutique architecture and interior design firm, AD Consulting in Lagos, and she regularly lectures on global aesthetics, gender issues, women's empowerment, and African entrepreneurial leadership.

Take an exclusive tour of three presidential residences in France — their histories, art, gardens, and architecture — discussed and photographed for the first time.

This volume offers a visit to the presidential residences of France: the Élysée Palace and its neighboring Hôtel de Marigny, the Lantern Pavilion hidden away in the park of Versailles, and the Brégançon Fort. These are the places where one can discover the excellence of French artisans, its art conservators and restaurateurs, and its famed gardeners. These sites of political theater and residences of the French president showcase France’s exceptional artistic heri­tage and present the great treasures of “French taste,” in perpetual reinvention from the eighteenth century through today, to diplomatic visitors from all over the world.

The text presents a new way of understanding these buildings and their history, one which puts in perspective their evolution in decor, public or secret, and which decrypts their symbolic power thanks to the author’s unprecedented access to the buildings and to archival documents.

Видавництво: Rizzoli

This exciting new book on British country houses offers an unusual and magnificent look at the lifestyle, architecture, and interior design of the country house of the British Isles.

From Brideshead to Downton Abbey, the country house is a subject of fantasy and curiosity, as well as a rich resource to explore the history of great architecture and decoration and the lives of landowners and those who made the houses work. With hundreds of photographs from the National Trust, and others from public and private collections, this visually lavish volume draws back the curtain on important historic homes in England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. At the same time it reveals the complex stories of these interiors, both grand and hidden, from great halls, libraries and entryways to the kitchens and stables and gardens. Locations featured include Knole, Cragside, Castle Howard, Chatsworth, Polesden Lacey, Petworth, Bodiam Castle, Blenheim, Longleat, and dozens more.
An insightful essay by renowned British author and historian David Cannadine explores how the idea of the country house has changed over the past forty years. Additional essays reflect on how changing twentieth century values have impacted the country house, with contributions by writers and scholars such as Sarah Callander-Beckett on the private house, Dr. Madge Dresser on slavery and the country house, and Dr. Oliver Cox on the 'Downton Abbey 'effect.' The texts are woven around extensive picture essays, introduced and curated by country house specialist Jeremy Musson, which look at the identity and image of British country houses of all kinds and the stories they contain.

The English Country House takes a look at the architecture and interiors of sixty-two stunning houses in a range of architectural styles spanning seven centuries - from the medieval Stokesay Castle to the newly built, Lutyens-inspired Corfe Farm - brought to life through the world-renowned photography library of Country Life. More than four hundred color and black and white illustrations provide an insight into the architecture, decoration, gardens, and landscape settings of these houses, which are set into their architectural and historical context by the accompanying text and extended captions.

The book provides an entrée into the houses to which Country Life has had privileged access over the years, many of which are still private homes, often occupied by descendants of the families that built them. Punctuating the book at intervals in the form of booklets on rich, uncoated paper are six essays by leading British architectural historians that set the English country house into its social context and chart the changing tastes in decorating and collecting, the development of ancillary buildings, gardens and landscapes, and finally, its influence in the United States. 

About the Authors:

Mary Miers is architectural writer, arts and books editor for Country Life. Her previous career was in architectural conservation, and she established and ran Scotland's Buildings at Risk Register in the 1990s.  Her books include The Western Seaboard: An Illustrated Architectural Guide and American Houses: The Architecture of Fairfax & Sammons.  Her home is in the Highlands of Scotland.

Provence is a land apart, a land of outstanding beauty and character. This book is a celebration of the spirit of place that continues to entrance visitors

The Greeks, the Romans, the barbarians of the North and the Moors have all left their traces in its villages and small towns, from the hills and mountains of the Lubéron to the villages perchés of the Alpes-Maritimes.

It is in smaller communities that the true Provençal spirit can be found: in sunlight falling across the tightly grouped terracotta roofs, or in the velvety shade in an ancient square – the country of Marcel Pagnol and Jean de Florette. Such scenes come alive here in Hugh Palmer’s radiant photographs and Michael Jacobs’ evocative accounts.

The book opens with the villages of the Vaucluse and the Bouches-du-Rhône then moves east to the Var and eventually the mountains of the Alpine départements, drawing out the special characteristics of each region. Here are the tranquil villages of the centre, but in stark contrast are the fortified hill villages of the east, perched on crests or terraced along the mountainside.

An unprecedented tour of stunning and architecturally significant Cuban palacios, mansions, and private homes that have been meticulously preserved, previously un-photographed, and inaccessible to visitors. 

At a time when more travellers are rediscovering Cuba, this lavishly illustrated volume offers a different view of the island’s cultural achievements. It presents not the Cuba of Castro’s era, with its derelict buildings and peeling paint, but the opulent world of the Spanish Creole aristocracy of the colonial period, with its Mudejar craftsmanship and baroque palacios, the sugarcane plantations (ingenios) and coffee plantations (cafetales), and classically inspired grand mansions. Exceptional preservation work has kept these villas in the magnificent state in which they were first envisioned.

The photographs, shot exclusively for this book, show examples in each area of the island-from the interiors and exteriors in Havana, Santiago de Cuba, Santa Clara, Cienfuegos, and Pinar del Rio to close-up details of courtyards, balconies, galleries, balustrades, grilles, and louvered doors in Trinidad, Matanzas, and Holguin. One featured home is Finca Vigia (“Lookout House”), the former residence of Ernest Hemingway.

Swedish country houses are among Europe’s best-kept secrets. Little known to the outside world and rarely illustrated, they survive in surprisingly large numbers, often with their original furniture and decoration.

The story of Swedish country houses is a mirror of Swedish social history, its hierarchy of classes, its absorption of European styles and movements, and above all the enduring character of its own culture.

This superb book, by a leading Swedish specialist in interiors, richly illustrated with images specially taken by a leading Swedish photographer, examines in detail examples from royal palaces to farmhouses, from the 15th century to the end of the 19th century.

About the Author:

Susanna Scherman was born and still lives in Sweden. She studied architecture and design and has practical experience in the restoration of interiors and of gardens. One of her previous titles, Den Svenska Kakelugnen – a book on the Swedish tiled stove – was nominated for the distinguished August Prize.
