"Peter Pennoyer is on the top of my short list of great American architects. His extraordinary understanding of the nuances of architecture, and exemplary respect for historic precedents, allow me to do my job ever better. As can be seen on every page of this captivating book, he is a decorator's dream architect." Jeffrey Bilhuber "Peter Pennoyer is perhaps the rudest, rowdiest, most unruly, rambunctious, and revolutionary radical in all of contemporary architecture. He has dared rip out by the roots the cardinal rule of by-now-rusty, notoriously rule-ridden, nearly century-old Modernism: 'Thou shalt not render any design requiring more than a ruler and a protractor.' Pennoyer has readily run the forbidden risk of trying every form he can recall plus forms too radically recent to be recognized at first run-through. He is the ruler of Right Now in American architecture." Tom Wolfe "Like a summer's day, each of Peter Pennoyer's rooms invites and refreshes. His homes seem to have existed forever--perfectly proportioned, welcoming, and full of good times to come. A beautiful book to stroll through and linger in." Sigourney Weaver "Peter Pennoyer has a way of creating inspiring rooms that are incredibly beautiful yet still feel like homes meant for living in. His designs seamlessly mix color, pattern, texture, and proportion and have meticulous attention to historic details that stays true to the original architecture of the space." Tory Burch
