Overview

Picture Perfect: Designing the New American Family Home is an inside look at Sander's step-by-step process of realizing one family's perfect home. The Anderson family sought a designer who would not only share in but enrich their vision of the ideal family house. They found Scott Sanders, whose taste for clean-lined classicism and playful sense of nostalgia converged with the family's own aesthetic sensibility and life-style. Picture Perfect is at once the start-to-finish story of the Anderson home - as documented through original floor-plan drawings, color schematics, and Michel Arnaud's extensive photography - and the biography of a designer at the top of his form, perfecting his own fresh, unique style. Childhood drawings and past projects (some completed during Sanders' time as director of Ralph Lauren's interior design department) compliment images of the Anderson house's conception, installation, and finished rooms, as readers are invited to immerse themselves in the work of the designer. These narratives converge into a truly unparalleled account of the creation of the New American Family House.
