Overview


Mlinaric on Decorating distills a lifetime of experience into one glorious volume. From his small practice started 45 years ago in London, David Mlinaric has become perhaps the most acclaimed interior designer of our time, with thriving offices in Paris and New York. His designs are featured in buildings the world over, including London’s National Gallery, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Spencer House, and the Primary Galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum. He's also done embassies in Washington, Paris, and Brussels, and houses for the Rothschilds, Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall, and myriad other private clients. Here, Mlinaric and author Mirabel Cecil describe the buildings he has worked on during his long career, with an expert eye toward the creation and interpretation of historic interiors. Two hundred photographs, 175 of them in full color, offer a sumptuous visual tour of these fabulous spaces.
