9780061672361: Apartments: Defining Style (Design)

Mariette Himes Gomez, author of the bestselling Rooms and Houses, now turns her award-winning design sensibility to Apartments. Lavishly photographed in New York, London, and Florida, Apartments showcases the elegance and style that has made Gomez one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 Decorators Worldwide, and a go-to interior designer for a client list that includes Harrison Ford, Peter Lynch, and director Ivan Reitman. From the placement of an antique French cabinet in a 1920’s Rosario Candela apartment in New York City to the replacement of mirrored walls for concrete floors in an ocean-side deck in Palm Beach, Apartments provides practical guidelines for building, buying, or renovating, and reveals how to create homes of unparalleled beauty and grace.

From the Back Cover:

The award-winning designer and author of Rooms and Houses returns with inspiring ideas for apartment interiors in this lavishly photographed book.

Step into a space designed by Mariette Himes Gomez and you're sure to notice the refined simplicity, clear architectural composition, and thoughtful attention to detail that have made her one of the most respected and sought-after tastemakers in the country. In Apartments, Gomez divulges the secrets of the trade to help you transform even the smallest pied-à-terre into a chic and airy living space. Filled with breathtaking photography, Apartments offers a stunning visual tour of her most elegant designs.

Gomez works with the natural composition of her clients' apartments to highlight each room's assets—such as a Central Park view—and address its deficits, such as the remnants of a previous owner's paint job. From the placement of an antique French cabinet in a 1920s Rosario Candela apartment in New York City to the replacement of mirrored walls in an oceanside deck in Palm Beach, Gomez provides practical suggestions for building, buying, or renovating to create the perfect space. Subscribing to the philosophy that less is more, she reveals how the elements of balance, color, and movement instill flow and harmony in any design.

Whether you are decorating a modest studio or a palatial penthouse suite, Apartments illuminates the world of possibility that unfolds when you let your apartment become your home.
