Praise for Artistic Interiors:

“For Suzanne Lovell, a well-designed room serves as a frame for the art it displays. In more than twelve featured projects, Lovell tailors her aesthetic to highlight her clients’ collections, resulting in graceful, harmonious spaces that are enhanced with works by Kara Walker, Vik Muniz, and Henri Matisse, among others.” —Architectural Digest

 “Perfect for gift giving; the holidays fast approach.” —Ebony

“An instant education in how art and furniture can live in harmony.” —Chicago magazine

“This book will have a special appeal to those looking for a sophisticated point of view in Midwestern abodes.” —Library Journal

“Although unmistakably modern, Suzanne Lovell’s carefully detailed style has a classic quality, frequently incorporating antiques as well as furniture by early-twentieth-century luminaries. She displays whimsical folk art with as much sophistication and integrity as highly important works by celebrated artists, past and present, and the book’s text is adept at explaining the thinking behind her designing.” —House & Garden (UK)

 “The book—beautifully designed by Doug Turshen, with David Huang, using the work of a handful of photographers led by Tony Soluri—makes her mastery of dimension, volume, material, form, color, scale, period, and detail exceptionally vivid.” —1stDibs.com 

“A sumptuous new volume by celebrated architect-designer Suzanne Lovell. Lovell offers intimate access to fourteen couture environments in which she has temptingly integrated architecture, materials, fine art, and the client's ‘soul and sensibility.’”—Private Clubs

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Visiting a dozen of her commissions, primarily in the Chicago area, architect and interior designer Lovell describes how she integrates her clients' existing art collections with her own take on interior design as well as the principles she uses to suggest art for her clients' taste. Over 150 color photographs show living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, baths, kitchens, and home offices. Lists of artists whose work is featured and of recommended artists are included. With many interior design books concentrating on East and West Coast homes, this book will have a special appeal to those looking for a sophisticated point of view in Midwestern abodes.
