Overview

Design Diary: Innovative Interiors provides a first-person "tour" through several stunning homes, apartments, and showhouse rooms created by one of America's leading interior designers, Noel Jeffrey. His unique ability to complement architectural features with tasteful furnishings, daring color, and unusual juxtapositions has made him the designer of choice among a noteworthy clientele-and is highlighted in this spectacular volume.

Each home in the book is considered in an overview, then explored room to room, providing an expert's point of view and approach to interior design. The book reveals Jeffrey's ingenious process through gorgeous four-color photographs, detailed captions about the colors and furnishings chosen for each setting, and helpful design tips. Also included is a chapter on finishing touches, the details-or accessories-that complete a room's décor. Two gatefolds enable readers to examine two of the homes in the book in depth, from lighting to fabric choices.

Design Diary is a beautiful, inspiring volume that is an excellent sourcebook for those in search of decorating ideas for creating elegant, livable spaces as well as for professional interior designers.
