Houses That We Dreamt Of: The Interiors of Delphine and Reed Krakoff

Combining the sophistication of luxury interiors, the innovation of period and contemporary furniture and art, and the glamour of fashion, the homes of Delphine and Reed Krakoff are inspirational and unforgettable.

This is the long-awaited monograph on the homes of Delphine and Reed Krakoff, unique voices in contemporary American design. Passion and obsession has driven the creation of their homes, each a master class in combining a grand space with world-class furnishings and artworks, with a savoir faire that only an American fashion designer (Reed) and a Paris-trained interior decorator (Delphine) can possess. Because of the unique lens that the Krakoffs train on their spaces, combining expertise in crafting the architectural space with their personal design and art collections and a refined understanding of livable spaces, these rooms are personal and inviting.

Some of their houses have been widely published to acclaim, while others are presented here for the first time. With texts from personal friends of the Krakoffs, such as Martha Stewart, Hamish Bowles, Simon Doonan, Tory Burch, and Jacques Grange, who are brilliant designers and writers in their own right, the book will inspire interiors and design lovers with these projects of passion and finesse that represent dreams realized.

" 'Houses That We Dreamt of: The Interiors of Delphine and Reed Krakoff' (Rizzoli, $60, 256 pp.) transports readers from Paris to Palm Beach to East Hampton, where each residence — an exercise in the quiet appeal of monochrome enlivened by cheeky pops of color, pattern and whimsy — receives a tribute from such fashion- and art-world heavyweights as Martha Stewart, Simon Doonan of Barneys New York and Hamish Bowles of Vogue."

"When Delphine and Reed Krakoff design or renovate a house, they turn it into a home with contemporary furniture and art. They are masterful at bringing calmness, serenity, and beauty together and create a luxurious feel in order to turn a house into a home. Throughout the pages, they discuss the art of luxurious design and interior. Delphine and Reed Krakoff are two great talents you rarely come across in the field of interior design. Houses That We Dreamt Of is a collection of stories of seven houses Delphine and Reed Krakoff together turned into homes although they have worked together on many more. It is simply a treat to hold this beautifully manufactured book in your hands."
