Overview

John Saladino's powerful new book is nothing less than a master class in interior and garden design. Villa focuses on the stone ruin in Southern California that Saladino painstakingly refashioned into his dream house, and it shows how his principles and passions guided him through the five-year process of reconstruction, restoration, and decoration. With the aid of plans and drawings, as well as numerous photographs of the house — how it looked in the 1920s, shots of when he bought it, and snaps taken during reconstruction — Saladino traces the architectural work involved. Then, in a superbly illustrated tour of the house and grounds, he proves that he practices what he’s preached for more than 30 years. Juxtaposing light and dark, old and new, classical and modern, monumental and miniscule, hard and soft, Saladino creates the serenely timeless interiors and gardens that are his hallmark.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From Veranda

John Saladino is a genius at infusing a house with a sense of drama. The Manhattan designer summoned his muses to grand theatrical effect for his second home, a romantic ruin of a 1920s Santa Barbara estate that he restored during four “relentless” years. It’s elegant transformation is the focus of Villa, one of the best design books of 2009—or any year. Graced with breathtaking photography of his sublime work, this unique coffee table tone includes a visually poetic DVD—a fifteen-minute tour narrated by Saladino himself. Together they turn design into veritable performance art.

This showstopper of a book by Saladino, a distinguished alumnus of the Yale School of Art and Architecture, fulfills its mission as a master class in interior, architectural and garden design.

    The Genius of John Saladino

    Truly one of the most beautiful books ever printed, and to be accompanied by a DVD tour of the property is more than I expected, and more than anyone could ask for.

    One sunny afternoon in a lovely garden in the West Village of Manhattan, I had drinks with John and Betty. They are as warm and eye catching, and the conversation is as exhilarating as the visual magic and spaces John has been creating for the decades we are blessed to have his gift. To say that John Saladino is an interior designer is a bit of an understatement. John is an artist who uses spaces, nature and objects to create a landscape matched only by the great painters and sculptors who have gone before him. I do believe it is time for the Nobel committee to establish a new category -- one just for John Saladino. Of course, he will get the Nobel. There is NO competition (smile).

    Hi to Betty...

    Best,

    Charles
