In this lavishly illustrated volume, Smyth reveals his own design tips, rules, and approaches to meeting challenges offered by uniquely shaped spaces. He focuses on editing collections to better showcase individual works, the personal nature of color selection, adding—or restoring—historical references, and finishing a space off with glorious, often unexpected fabrics and trims. Over two hundred color photographs showcase a wide variety of styles, from a nature-infused Aspen vacation home to the quintessential Upper East Side apartment to a London flat that smoothly blends its owner’s inherited collection of Renaissance art with fine Indian pieces.

Matthew Smyth's book Living Traditions is sure to be a long-lived classic. Mr. Smyth talks about design in context: the contexts of his clients' homes and also of his own life. A true professional with deep experience, he knows fad from fashion, and his interiors get better and better as they age. By all means, get this beautiful book.
