Muriel Brandolini discusses her new book “The World of Muriel Brandolini”

Muriel Brandolini’s exceptional taste and unconventional aesthetic have made her a celebrated international interior designer. Her multicultural background—Vietnam, the Caribbean, and France—has influenced her unusual style, which is a mix of exoticism, elegance, and fantasy. Her interiors are marked by 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 including such signature details as fabric walls, slipper chairs covered in hand-pieced antique fabrics, found treasures, and Asian-style split bamboo window shades. This avant-garde style setter shows that with an unfettered imagination one can create an alluring home environment.

The Whole Hog Cookbook: A Delicious Review

Check out this amazing review of Rizzoli’s forthcoming The Whole Hog Cookbook, including an interview with the books author, Libbie Summers:

“Libbie introduces the book with a story from her childhood and her grandmother’s farm. She describes her youthful disregard for her grandmother’s prized pigs by riding them like horses, and then realizes her wrong-doings. These animals deserve respect. Respect in life and in death. This is why she offers this cookbook to lovingly (and deliciously) utilize every last part of the pig, to pay the utmost respect to one of God’s most flavorful creatures . . . I can honestly say that The Whole Hog Cookbook is filled with love. Love for pigs and all of their beautiful parts.”
