Reviews

"Architect and designer Laura Gonzalez is adding "author" to her resume with her exuberant debut monograph. The volume showcases the Paris-based decorator mix-match style that celebrates color and pattern. Readers get exclusive tours Gonzalez’s most-acclaimed projects like the Cartier mansion in New York and the designer's own private French country house." —VERANDA

" For her debut monograph, Gonzalez eschewed a list of her most recently completed abodes in favor of a career highlight reel. On display in this fabric-wrapped Italian hardcover is a mix of residences and boutiques, including the ​​Cartier mansion in New York, Paris’s Saint James hotel, and Gonzalez’s own country home in Mainneville, France." —CULTURED

"Paris designer Laura Gonzalez tends to leave her mark on a project—usually in a chic profusion of pattern and color. This book shows how it manifests in the likes of an Art Deco apartment, where her Madras chair and curving Fuji sofa are anchored by a botanical print carpet, or in the 19th-century château-style hotel Saint James Paris. There, she juxtaposed the bar’s restored coffered ceiling with a wash of grassy green paint." —ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST
