About This Book

An unsurpassed collection of the most inspiring minimalist interiors in the world. Minimalism has a richness, texture, and creativity that continues to inspire designers to create a wide range of looks, from minimalist luxury to luxurious minimalism. From rough luxe to stripped down modernist formality to an almost empire-style minimalism, this collection of beautiful photographs showcases breathtaking interiors from around the world that combine a sense of grandeur and drama shaped and inflected by minimalism. Whatever the location, period, or architectural style, all the rooms featured here share a sense of proportion, balance, and minimalist elegance. The range of interiors and properties include a New York penthouse where the minimalist interiors highlight incredible views; a Colorado lodge in a dramatic mountain setting; a Loire Valley château; a traditional country house in Litchfield; a Fire Island beach house; a recently renovated baroque palace in Sweden; private estates in California and Vermont, and much more. Nine special sections feature statements from specially conducted interviews with the world’s most celebrated interior designers. Complete with an address book of useful contact details, this is an inspiring volume that celebrates the enormous range of possibilities of minimalism in the grand style.

    "At first, employing the minimalist aesthetic can sound like an easy choice: "I have to buy less stuff!"But, start designing and you'll quickly leam the dilemma of editing a room to its most essential lines and textures. So what is this concept and how you can use it? Luxurious Mimimallsm presents maximal answers to (and beautiful photos of) these questions. Where many design books look like mere furniture catalogues, Howes and Von Der Schulenberg's remains committed to its idea of being something larger. Yes, there are the de rigeur images of people's homes but the authors also take us into less expected interiors we need to see to understand the concept, such as a Benedictine monastery in Austria. The result is a deceptively thorough presentation which still respects the ideal of specificity." ~Metrosource NY
