About This Book

This latest addition to the The Way We Live… series, The Way We Live with the Things We Love, looks at hundreds of creative and stylish interiors decorated with personalized objects and artifacts. Divided into eight sections, the book showcases Gilles de Chabaneix’s incredible eye for detail and knack for photographing telling personal objects displayed in a multitude of places and cultures—from the display of expensive and cherished antiques to the imaginative use of found objects. Chapters include flea-market finds and objects found by serendipitous accident, tribal decorative elements of ethnic art from around the globe, art (prints, sketches, watercolors, and paintings), antiques, religious objects, rustic objects in wood and stone evoking a sense of the countryside, and "kitchenalia" or pre-plastic culinary paraphernalia. Within each section are highly detailed photographs of inspiring interiors that make the book a truly evocative encyclopedia of the art of making the most of what we treasure the most.
