Extravagance PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Extravagance free pdf Some are filled to bursting with leopard skin cushions and gilt mirrors. Others have an indefinably quaint, old-world charm all their own. Some are dimly lit by candles, while one or two are brightly illuminated by the neon glow of strings of fairy lights. Whatever the inspiration behind them, the homes featured in indulgence bear the stamp of the people who live there - people who have decided to make their environment a reflection of their own personality and passions. From Vanessa Bell to the provocative French artists Pierre et Gilles, from Sigmund Freud's Viennese apartments to the home of photographer Turbeville in New Mexico, Indulgence explores the private tastes of these designers, artists and thinkers who shape the world. Also featured are the charmingly eccentric homes of unknown devotees of design: a butcher who, on his days off, is a specialist in sixteenth-century art- a London taxi driver whose cab is an intricately decorated shrine to the Taj Mahal. Fashion journalist Claude Berthod's text lovingly details the particular features of each home, while the stunning photographs of Roland Beaufre will provide inspiration for all those who believe that good taste and design flair are not dependent on the dictates of fashion but are intrinsically individual qualities.
