Format: Hardcover
I had never heard of Jennifer Post until I read about her book party in New York Social Diary. The cover had few words: Pure Space. Elegant Minimalism. The cover photo had a wall of glass. A penny dropped --- this book held clues for our next home.

I googled Jennifer Post. And discovered at "an home" piece about her on the same site. Turns out that she lives in a mostly white, stripped bare apartment in The Apthorp --- her apartment is a lot like the one I had, just a zillion times better done.

Better believe I rushed to get my hands on "Jennifer Post: Pure Space."

Post's signature is minimalism of a very high order. Her white paint isn't what you buy at Home Depot, it's a special, secret formula. She knocks walls down and repositions them, and not for the feng shui of it. Given her druthers, she banishes baseboards. And most furniture. And, for that matter, possessions.

"People think that minimalism is cold, but I show it as elegant, sophisticated, warm and inviting," she says. "My rooms are happy rooms --- whoever lives there is happy, People begin to realize how much more freedom they have. Once I'm done, they appreciate how much easier it is to live without two or three sets of plates."

And make no mistake: Her clients pay for the privilege. There are no scholarship cases among them; she's got Simon Cowell and Jennifer Lopez and zillionaires who look down on us from the heights of the Time-Warner tower. As she likes to say, she's not a BMW: "I'm a Bentley."

What do her clients see in white rooms with no wood in sight?

Peace. Serenity. Relief. And --- let's say it bluntly --- every kind of distance from the world and its vulgar little people.

What's in these 240 pages for us vulgar little people?

I was actually hoping for a book that would teach me about how to design (specifically in minimalist style). This book is more a praise of Jennifer Post's work. I wasn't quite what I expected but I enjoy her work. I just wish there were more details about how she chooses her colors and how she chooses to eliminate the unnecesary clutter in a room. My brain was left hungry for knowledge.

With that said, it's still fun to peruse in bed with a cup of hot chocolate while listening to soft bossa nova on Pandora (in my opinion at least)
