Format: Hardcover
If fashion designers understand anything about design, they understand foremost livability, color, fabric, line, shape and comfort. Aren't these the essentials in interior design? Fashion designers design clothes that can be worn every day. Similarly, when they're designing for their homes, they know how to combine originality with style with comfort with livability. So, it's not surprising that their homes are chic AND functional. This book showcases their very stylish, original and comfortable homes.

If you've seen books on homes of artists, the homes may be innovative and interesting, but they don't look too comfortable. You may feel like you're living in a museum.

Ah, but fashion designers really understand the possibilities of fabric and how it can be used for maximum comfort and drama--maybe even more than interior designers, so fashion designers' homes are one-of-a-kind and full of fascinating and textured fabric, like the homes in this book. What I loved about the book is the rooms didn't slavishly copy a "look" such as mid-century modern, or Hollywood Regency. The designers just combined furniture and fabric they loved and came up with something so personal and so chic that by studying the rooms, you come away with ideas for your home. Like Kate Spade's home. Or Tory Burch's, or Max Azria's, or Oscar La Renta's and Carolina Herrera's New York City home. Over 100 designers were featured. However, not all of them were you able to see inside the home. That was my only disappointment with the book. There were enough homes in which you COULD see the interiors to make it worthwhile. I just wanted to keep studying the photos because the rooms were so fresh and unusual. None of the rooms looked alike.

Size (big book) and dust cover front picture were appealing but the book itself is pretty terrible: they cramped way too many designers; some of them only have 1 small picture of their home (and not even the best picture!) and a few lines; that doesn't make any sense; some pictures are poor quality (terrible lighting or focused on what is not beautiful in the room instead of what stands out); plus, many pictures are actually from many years ago so they look grainy (it doesn't help that many different photographers took the pictures so the whole book is not coherent and looks like a cheap and fast collage); it looks very cheap overall. I thought this would be like an "Elle Decor" issue but bigger and with much more material/inspiration; it is not it at all. I'm happy I got the book for very cheap.

i bought this for my husband since he has a huge collection of decorating and interior design books. it is hard to find something he does not have and this filled the bill. it is interesting to see how creative people live.

Interesting pages to look through to see the Designers rooms and their personality in the rooms that they call home.
