The Way We Live transcends all other style books to reveal global connections and patterns in home decoration. What we see in other contexts, other cultures, can also affect our own lives. This is a sourcebook of thousands of possibilities … Beautiful and practical, The Way We Live is much more than a decorating guide — it is a design for living.
The way we live is not always defined by where we live. Fabrics, textures, and ornamental details reflect the complexity of different spaces and lifestyles, offering countless ideas for self-expression. The world tour of interior design elements is lavishly presented in more than 1,000 colour photographs.
The plan of the book follows a simple progression: how we build in the community in different habitats; how we add to and refine to create our own lifestyle; and how we then inhabit what we have with the possessions we have gathered around us.
Commentary on communal space, which connects us to one another, and a meticulous guide to sources and materials round out this ultimate treasury.
