Barely acquainted with Ms. Lovell's work from design periodicals, it was the book's tag line that captured my interest: "Designing with fine art collections". Certainly this tome lives up to that claim. Of the thirteen residential projects presented, all are a treasure-trove of good art, much of it truly fine, and each project is photographed in detail. Ms. Lovell's design sensibility is firmly founded in the 21st century and feels modern even while incorporating antiques, objects and works of art spanning hundreds of years. Her management of these elements is deft and welcoming, with only one example of "minimalism on ice", and that was obviously what her client had requested.

This book, and for that matter, Ms. Lovell's style will not appeal to those who are devotees of the "undecorated" look, or those who will be resentful of generously-funded projects. These interiors are tightly planned and thoughtfully conceived within an inch of their lives, but never appear forced or artificial. An uber-glamorous pied-a-terre in New York with its map-of-Milan carpet, silver-leafed and eglomise walls and lustrous finishes and fabrics manages to be both over-the-top and not quite over-the-top at the same time - but it is spectacular. In contrast, a century-old artillery shed deaccessioned by the Army was repurposed into a light-filled casual family home that exudes a rather rustic elegance. And true to it's tag line, emphasis is given to the prominent incorporation of fine art in these interiors. This was one of those take-a-chance books that delighted rather than disappointed.

Okay, so I'm a huge fan of interior design coffee table books. But, I'm starting to have too many; so now I'm very picky about the ones I choose to buy. Can I just say "awesome"! This book is a feast for the eyes and the imagination. The copy is well-written and not too flowery. And, many of the homes (but not all) are in Chicago -- a welcome change from New York. Buy the book; you will not be sorry.

Elevated art and homes, nice view of how fine art can be used to enhance a space where price is no object. Ideas can be used for less expensive art as well. Really beautiful book and photos.

I glanced at the book and decided to buy it and it was a mistake. It was outdated and boring.
