Books Info:

Designers Abroad free pdf "Designers Abroad," ""Michele Keith's follow-up to her highly successful book "Designers Here and There," features twenty-two vacation homes of today's top interior designers, exquisitely captured in over 200 lush color photographs. For some, vacation homes offer an opportunity to escape from the office, to shut off, to wind down. For decorators, however, vacation homes mean just the opposite--they provide the opportunity to bring work home as they roam the globe, honing their design sensibilities and expanding collections of treasures. "Designers Abroad" takes the reader on a tour of the world, from Sri Lanka to South Africa to Sweden, by peeking into the gorgeously appointed homes of renowned interior designers. In lively and dynamic text, Michele Keith explores how they incorporate the distinct and native character a foreign land into their second homes, all the while expressing personal style. Embracing new cultures' climates, architectural traditions, and indigenous art, fabrics, and furniture, each designer creates a space at once comfortable and glamorous, a place of solace and inspiration. "Designers Abroad" offers inside peeks into residences ranging from a chic studio in Paris to a house perched on windswept cliffs in Nova Scotia, from a beachside abode nestled among boulders in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to a former monastery outside Rome dating back to the fifteenth century. Each project is accompanied by the story of how its design was conceived and executed, and how the attributes of each country inspired its owners--including Lars Bolander, Alessandra Branca, Clodagh, Timothy Corrigan, Mica Ertegun, Fisher Weisman, Juan Pablo Molyneux, Juan Montoya, and Cortney and Robert Novogratz, among others. "Designers Abroad" demonstrates how these designers incorporate their passion for travel into their own interiors, and thus inspires readers to add a touch of the exotic to their own homes.
