Richard Gillette is truly an inspiration for anyone with a passion for art history or an eye for design. Through his book, Gillette demonstrates that it is possible to incorporate the rich history of visual culture through a wide array of artistic landscapes into one's own home, creating a personalized museum that feels as fresh and fabulous as it does cozy and casual. Gillette has an intuitive knack for combining classic architecture with modern art, and in turn adorning very modern spaces with beautiful antiques.
Bravo! Richard- you have truly taken the ranks amongst the greats as one of the best interior designers of the twentieth, and now twenty-first, century.

This is an art you can't hang on the walls, but it can be. At best, it is the walls themselves that become character and device and, if done to perfection, extend beyond their physical limits to mingle with your life. The cliche of the home decorator is having someone to spend your money for you. The reality of an interior designer is finding that rare individual who can see something for you that you would never have thought of, and later wonder how you missed it all along.
