Interior Design

Fabulous!: The Dazzling Interiors of Tom Britt

For readers who enjoyed Mario Buatta, Tom Britt's monograph documents the fifty-year career of one of America's greatest designers. Britt's interiors reflect a cleanly tailored and brightly hued modernity, with all the embellishments of refined and luxurious decoration. A must-have addition to Rizzoli's list of books on the modern masters of interior design.

Fabulous: The Dazzling Interiors of Tom Britt is a sweeping survey of (and the first book about) the AD100 interior designer's grand way with decoration. Color palettes are bold, style contrasts are high energy, even the smallest room is packed with swagger and panache, and multicultural allusions abound.
