In addition to these and many other homes, the book includes a Visitor's Guide, listing the places to see and be seen in while staying in the city, and a Chinese Decorative Arts chapter that will inspire even the most informed collectors.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books take different approaches to viewing Asian interior design. Tettoni presents a visual sourcebook to residential design in southeast Asia showing traditional as well as contemporary design in such countries as Bali, Malaysia, Sumatra, and the Philippines. Beginning with a review of the traditional, native dwellings in this area, he devotes the majority of this lavishly illustrated book to the contemporary interpretation of traditional and colonial living both in interiors and in landscaping. At the end he looks at various furniture and accessoriessuch as Indonesian furniture and lacquerware that define the traditional decorating styles. Benge visits the homes of affluent Hong Kong residents -- from Chris Patten, the last governor of Hong Kong, to socialites Kai Bong and Brenda Chaugiving a glimpse at the Hong Kong lifestyle just before the city's turnover to the Chinese. Yachts, gardens, and nightclubs are also photographed, with most showing a definite modern design style with a just dash of Asian detail. Tettoni's book is the better choice for those patrons seeking examples of affordable, Asian-influenced style.
