New York Livingby Lisa Lovatt-Smith, Alberto Heras (Photographer)
Fast, loud, unstoppable... New York has a reputation as one of the world's busiest cities. But behind the uproar of the public streets lies a face of New York that few visitors see: a private world of introspection and intimacy. From SoHo to Harlem, from the Upper East Side to the West Village, New Yorkers have created their own highly individual living environments that reflect the diversity of the city and its people.
Focusing on Manhattan, New York's nerve center, this book looks at the homes of twenty-seven New Yorkers from the worlds of art, film, fashion, design and architecture. Quirky, eccentric, ultra-modern or bohemian, all bear the unique stamp of their owners, who include photographers and magazine editors, gallery owners and artists. Whether it's a loft in Chelsea or a radical conversion in TriBeCa, a transformed sausage factory in Greenwich Village or a 1920s apartment on Park Avenue, each space is deeply personal and yet embodies the essence of living in the metropolis.
Lisa Lovatt-Smith's text interprets each interior, revealing the personality of its owner and looking at the decorative details that make up the overall effect. Specially commissioned pictures by leading photographer Alberto Heras capture the essence of each home, giving a privileged and up-to-the-minute glimpse of some of the city's most remarkable residences. Full of original and unusual decorative ideas, New York Living is a book that will delight and inspire.
