Overview

The most pleasurable aspects of tropical living combine with a con-temporary sensibility to create an entirely new and exciting book on interior design.

Living in a tropical climate, with rich vegetation, wide beaches, and relaxed attitudes has inspired a wide range of creative and appealing interiors and design, often influenced by local crafts and building traditions, climatic considerations, and the desire to maximize indoor-outdoor living.

Selecting the best examples from far-flung locations around the tropics—from Brazil to New Zealand, from Florida to Singapore—Tropical Minimal demonstrates how exotic surroundings can be enhanced through simple touches and combined with pared-down furnishings.

Photographed specially for this volume, examples are presented in six chapters that cover the gamut of tropical-minimal design and architecture—living, dining, bathing, sleeping, and relaxing outdoors. A visual reference section focuses on design details, from wood and terraces to planting and pools. 281 color illustrations.
