Think natural, loosen up, pare down, color in, and above all, live well! These are the key words of the new country living, and no home better exemplifies this wonderful philosophy than decorator Tricia Guild's Tuscan farmhouse. A tour around this warm and wonderful home is the centerpiece in a richly photographed look at what defines the best contemporary design. The first section, "A New Attitude," pinpoints the main features of this current approach. Then, the intimate glimpse into Guild's private world, as well as four other houses, spotlights her love of natural materials, her uncluttered arrangements, her loose approach to fabric, and bold use of color--as well as the inspiration she draws from the surrounding landscape. Rooms glow with brightness; her kitchen bursts with fresh produce; inside and out, tables are laid with embroidered cloths, jugs of garden flowers, vibrant mismatched plates, and delicious local foods. Finally, "Living and Entertaining" is an exhortation to fill your world with pleasure, and to bring exuberance not only to your dcor and design, but to all you do. None of the ideas is expensive, and every one is innovative, easy, and life enhancing!

One of the world's foremost interior designers focuses on color and its use in creating truly evocative personal interiors. For forty years, Tricia Guild has set the pace with her acclaimed interiors and up-to-the-minute collections of fabrics, wallpapers, and furnishings. She is celebrated for her extraordinary gift for combining bold patterns, chinoiserie, and Indian influences with contemporary lines and an impeccable sense of color that has made her one of the most sought-after interior designers today. Here, she shares her systematic approach to understanding and working with color, pattern, and texture, exploring themes that shape and inspire her stylish and sensuous yet playful sensibility. She begins by defining her notion of five basic color families and then demonstrates how to use color and pattern with impact and confidence to create glamorous, dramatic environments.

Examples from her own acclaimed designs coupled with stunning original photography of real-world examples from all over the globe--from contemporary London lofts to coastal New England cottages and California Wine Country estates--complements a text rich in insight from the designer's perspective.

Luminous, gorgeously realized landscape paintings made en plein air by members of the California Art Club over the past 100 years. This volume showcases 200 works by California Art Club artists who have focused on the evocative seascapes, charming seaside towns, and beach communities from San Diego to San Francisco, demonstrating a breathtaking range of natural settings suffused with atmosphere, drama, and light. Since the dawn of the twentieth century, California has been home to artists from all over America and Europe who aspired to depict the state's compelling natural landscapes on canvas. In 1909, these artists founded the California Art Club, which stands today as one of the most esteemed painting societies in the United States. This volume, which follows Skira Rizzoli's luminous California Light: A Century of Landscapes, presents more of the club's distinctive and lush plein air painting, an impressionistic style in which painters work outdoors in order to capture the ephemeral moment when the natural lighting of a landscape elevates an already beautiful scene into something sublime. As observed by W.H. Auden, "Thousands have lived without love, not one without water." We as a species are drawn to the sea--artists perhaps even more so than others, as beautifully evidenced in this book.
