Editorial Reviews

Review

The World of Muriel Brandolini is a feast of highly original design, illustrating a singular and eclectic sensibility.” ~Departures
 
“More than just beautiful pictures of houses, the book is an American Dream story told against a multicontinental jet-set soundtrack.” ~Town & Country
 
"Decorator Muriel Brandolini’s style cannot be shoehorned into one category. Her first book demonstrates the range and audacity of her work." ~New York Magazine

"The World of Muriel Brandolini features a dynamic color sense, bold textures and patterns, and an unusual combination of antique and contemporary furnishings. Beautifully photographed, this look into Brandolini’s sophisticated world includes profiles of select residences, including her own legendary townhouse, which is considered to be a design laboratory. This avant-garde style-setter shows how an unfettered imagination can create an alluring home environment." Editor at large

More About the Author

Designer Muriel Brandolini's unconventional approach to design has made her one of the most sought-after designers in New York.

Her style and ideas are constantly being reinvented and consistently breaking away from the traditional. Muriel Brandolini's multicultural background, which includes Vietnam, Venezuela, Martinique, and France, is unmistakably evident in her work, which is a celebrated mix of fantasy and elegant exoticism. Her work has been profiled in Harper's Bazaar, The World of Interiors, Vogue, Architectural Digest, Vanity Fair, and Elle Decor among others.

Her first book - "The World of Muriel Brandolini:Interiors" - has just been published by Rizzoli, coinciding with a pioneering sale of her collection of decorative arts and design with Phillips de Pury.

This is a gorgeously produced book. The photography is the finest and the format is more than generous. Almost 300 pages of large, lush pictures.

The designer's style may be one of those love-it-or-hate-it propositions. However, even though it may not suit everyone's taste, I cannot imagine anyone actually hating these interiors. It isn't easy to pigeonhole Brandolini's style. It is certainly original and beautiful and not very low-key. My initial impression was sort of Tony Duquette meets the Far East. Lots of Oriental touches in lavish, colorful settings, both traditional and contemporary. A mostly modern look, but with antique and vintage pieces effectively used. Many of the furnishings and accessories are Brandolini's own creations.

Anyone who appreciates fine interior design should enjoy this book and find it an excellent source of unique ideas.n

Until my October 2011 issue of Town and Country magazine arrived, I had never heard of Muriel Brandolini. Upon reading the article "Muriel's Moment", I immediately fell in love with her design style. Her style is captivating. I ordered her book online and it arrived 2 days ago. I can honestly say that I did not want to put it down. This is one great design book about her life and her taste. Most design books I have read do not hold my interest, but this book does. I love how free she is with her interior design and how she doesn't follow the "rules".

This is one book that I will go back to over and over again - just like the article in Town and Country magazine.

Thank goodness for Muriel Brandolini.

IT IS APPROPRIATE TO SUM UP MURIEL BRANDOLINI'S STYLE AS BOHEMIAN CHIC. I HAVE A LARGE COLLECTION OF INTERIOR DESIGN BOOKS AND SO FAR, SHE IS THE BEST INTERIOR DESIGNER IN BOHEMIAN CHIC STYLE. SHE POSSESSES A MAGICAL WAND IN CREATING ORIGINAL INTERIORS IN HER PAST ENERGETIC AND COLORFUL PALETTES AS WELL AS HER PRESENT ELEGANT AND SUBDUED LOOKS. THIS IS A MUST HAVE BOOK FOR SOMEONE WHO APPRECIATES A GLOBAL OUTLOOK IN FURNITURE, HANDICRAFTS AS WELL AS CONTEMPORARY ARTS. MURIEL'S BOLD AND SKILLFUL USE OF FABRICS ON WALLS, EMBROIDERIES AND ARTISTIC RUGS CREATES ONE OF A KIND ROOMS THAT ARE WARM AND INVITING. HER ROOMS CAN BE SOPHISTICATED, ARTISTIC, MODERN, ETHNIC AND ORGANIC. I LOVE HER EXTENSIVE USE OF FABRICS AND EMBROIDERIES IN UNEXPECTED COLOR COMBINATIONS. THE PHOTOGRAPHS ARE VERY WELL DONE AND THE BOOK IS MADE OF GOOD QUALITY PAPERS. THIS BOOK WOULD BE MORE INTERESTING IF MURIEL INCORPORATED MORE PHOTOGRAPHS OF PLACES AND PEOPLE IN VIETNAM AND ELSEWHERE THAT HAVE INSPIRED HER WORKS. THE LARGE CLOSE UP PHOTOGRAPHS OF HER PRETTY EMBROIDERED HATS CAN BE SHRUNK TO MUCH SMALLER SIZE AND BE REPLACED WITH MORE PHOTOGRAPHS OF SKILLFUL WORKERS IN VIETNAM PRODUCING HER HANDICRAFTS. I HOPE THIS IS NOT MURIEL'S FIRST AND LAST BOOK. SHE IS A BRILLIANT DESIGNER WHO INSPIRES A LOT OF PRESENT AND FUTURE INTERIOR DESIGNERS AS WELL AS ORDINARY HOMEOWNERS WITH HER OUTSTANDING WORKS. IT IS MY PRIVILEGE TO HAVE SEEN SUCH BEAUTIFUL INTERIOR DESIGNS.

I am a huge fan of Muriel Brandolini's interiors. I was delighted to see a book of her work, as I have collected every magazine i could find with her designs. I had been hoping to see some interiors that had not previously been public. Unfortunately, this book seems to contain mostly previously published work--and not all of it, either--I had also been hoping to see reprints of some early work. (She did some fabulous early apartments, and even an early suburban home--less grand, but wonderfully imaginative.) To my disappointment, this book is mostly her most recent and previously published interior work. If you have not seen her houses, it is not to be missed; if you have the magazines (as I do), it's a little disappointing.
