More About A Passion for Interiors by Carolyne Roehm; Sylvie Becquet
 
 
 
Overview
In her most personal book, Carolyne Roehm shares her lifelong love of classical architecture and design, graciously inviting us into her favorite spaces in three remarkable homes: her own dazzling Manhattan prewar duplex, her antique-filled Colonial-era stone house in Connecticut, and a special friend's Aspen residence evocative of eighteenth-century Sweden. Each is an architectural showpiece as well as a superlative example of her polished style: never fussy, always graceful and enticing.
Even as a young design assistant to Oscar de la Renta, Carolyne Roehm was a devotee of the eternal virtues of artistry. Now, having lived in several residences, she has gathered her knowledge, enthusiasms, and extraordinary collections to make these three homes quintessential examples of the Roehm style. Each is individual--yet all showcase her classical leanings and devotion to the beauty and grace of authentic craftsmanship. The New York apartment, with its selection of antique busts and objects and superlative artwork and furnishings; the stunning double-height great room, beautifully finished in handcrafted neoclassical details, that forms the heart of her Connecticut residence; Aspen's colorful, abundant interiors, light-flooded from 78 windows--all express the special, satisfying harmony that can exist between timeless architecture and the artisan's atelier.
With more than 300 intimate and evocative photographs of these classical splendors, "A""Passion for Interiors" is a masterwork--rich with stylish inspirations for tailor-made decor. Oprah Winfrey admits, "Whenever I'm having a stressful day, I just want to open up Carolyne Roehm's books, look at beautiful things, and dream." Indeed, there is plenty to dream about in this extraordinary book.
