“Interior architect, decorator, furniture and textile designer extraordinaire, the well-traveled Diaz-Azcuy incorporates his passion into the kind of achingly beautiful rooms that fill this book.” ~Veranda

By B. Dittmar on May 20, 2009
Format: Hardcover
ORLANDO DIAZ-AZCUY, the latest in a very long line of excellent books written by Diane Dorrans Saeks, takes you into the world of this brilliant San Francisco-based designer. Having quite a collection of design books, from the moment I opened this title I noted how this one stands out as truly having a strong and clear point of view. You could not mistake these rich and lush interiors for anything other than the work of Orlando Diaz-Azcuy. Seamlessly mixing (and carefully editing) 'high' and 'low' items within one space; bathing rooms with soft, warm light; magically infusing subtle colors and textures -- all hightlights of the work found on these pages. Combine the numerous images of these inspired rooms with the carefully worded and insightful text and you have this new 'must-have' for any design enthusiast!

Format: Hardcover
Orlando Diaz's breadth of style and creativity really shines through in this beautiful book. As a coffee table book it's beautiful to look at, but it's a wonderful resource for design inspiration and ideas of how to have a beautiful home that you can LIVE in. So many masters of interior designs have books that look beautiful but aren't truly livable spaces. This book shows that across a range of client's individual styles and tastes, Diaz is a master of mixing old and new, color and neutrality, varieties of textures it all comes together to create unique rooms and homes. While the text is often a bit off putting and pretentious, what comes through is the brilliance of Diaz's designs. Each home reflects Diaz' surprises and quirks that make it clear that he doesn't "do" just one look. The book is fabulous resource and a terrific gift for anyone who enjoys design and wants to learn about Diaz's vision.

What a great book! Compiled and edited by the incomparable Ms. Saeks. I own MANY of her books. Such inspiring work over the years from Mr. Diaz-Azcuy all in one book. This is a must for any design library.

Some of the early work is clearly dated. His own homes were featured and I think these are the only ones I really liked. His work studios featured didn't seem relevant to his residential work. Disappointed that the one project I really loved I already owned as a tear sheet from a publication.
