Editorial Reviews

Review

"The marriage of the classical and the inventive is the hallmark of the San Francisco decorating duo, whose Fisher Weisman firm is regarded as among the nation's best. Their unbridled imagination is on full display in their first book... Among the more eye-popping surprises in the book is a Sonoma County tree house that the couple built for themselves." —San Francisco Chronicle

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If you tend to feast on interior design books with a "more is more" aesthetic, then a first glance at "Artful Decoration: Interiors by Fisher Weisman" might leave you puzzled. A number of homes featured are so devoid of any signs of life and so minimally accessorized that they appear to have been staged for a quick sale, and this could easily lead you to put aside this book as disappointing.

And that would be a mistake. Why? Because few other design books offer such visually and intellectually challenging architecture in residential interiors or photography that so stunningly captures the design genius at play. Also notable in these interiors are a poetry in the juxtaposition of disparate objects and textures and a mixing of wall art styles so refined and self-assured that many a museum curator might be envious. In contrast to the layered interiors of an Ann Getty or Yves Saint Laurent home, those of the Fisher Weisman team do not envelop the viewer. At the same time, they do not overwhelm us, and that, I believe, gives us the opportunity and space to be far more personally engaged in reacting to what we see.

This book has some wonderful designs in it. The designer is a master at building intricate table top
'sets' to feature small antique pieces and collections. Excellent sense of color, proportion and spatial
arrangements throughout the book. One of the most unusual design books I've bought in a long time!

As someone with no creative talent at all, I was reduced to tears with the beauty in these pages. The designs and photos are magnificent and the words both in the dedication and description were beautiful. To discover that Fisher and Weisman not only designed these houses but also some of the actual artwork was just magical. How I wish they could fly to Australia to design even one room in my house! This book sits on my coffee table for all to read and enjoy.

This book showcases the beautiful work and artistry of Jeffry Weisman and Andrew Fisher. It is a pleasure to turn each page and be treated to one beautiful room after another. Much of Fisher Weisman's work is custom and Mr. Fisher is the artist responsible for many pieces designed specifically for their clients homes. One example would be the unique shell encrusted lighting. It is a treat to have a chance to peer into the lovely indoor and outdoor living spaces designed by these two gifted men.
