An ode to extravagant and lush interiors that are not afraid to take risks, this new design movement proves that when it comes to bold colors and rich detailing, more is always more. A 21st-century take on sumptuous interiors is sweeping through the design world, combining expressive colors and textures with unusual forms and materials. The result is a highly original interior style, a contemporary interpretation of art deco and classic 50s and 60s Hollywood film set interiors. This new maximalist aesthetic is lovingly layered with references―a welcome antidote to mid-century modernism and minimalist restraint. The House of Glam invites you into the most exciting homes, from Italy to the USA, that embody this decadent, playful trend, profiling key studios and designers at the forefront of the movement. Revealing the key insights behind this rich new spectrum of design, The House of Glam will convert even the most hardened minimalists among us.

A modernist take on Mediterranean aesthetics, this new movement in interior design embraces sumptuous minimalism through warm, earthy tones, and natural materials. A welcoming, new, down-to-earth minimalism is gaining momentum in home interiors, from California to Morocco, Portugal to Mexico. This trend combines folkloric influences with a rustic aesthetic, taking cues from arid landscapes to embrace warmth, light, and organic elements. Striking, sun-kissed interiors are replete with greenery to bring the outdoors in, and whitewashed walls are complemented by warm, earthy tones. Detailing like terracotta tiles, rattan furniture, and colorful handwoven textiles are offset by concrete, brick, and glass. The New Mediterranean showcases inspiring residences and apartments that are infused with this relaxed, Mediterranean aesthetic. The book introduces the designers, architects, and brands who are bringing the style to life, outlining key elements in order to show how to create this look at home. More than a design trend, this is a philosophy to transform interiors into havens of light, craftsmanship, and simplicity.

With a little imagination you can see the potential of an older property. Modern, sustainable design can transform an aging edifice into a stunning, one-of-a-kind home with an eye to the future and a foot in the past. With a little imagination you can see the potential of an older property. Modern, sustainable design can transform an aging edifice into a stunning, one-of-a-kind home with an eye to the future and a foot in the past.

From lush suburban residences to former churches and barns, The Home Upgrade shows the rewards of reinventing a historic property that needs work. Whether changing floor plans, adding extensions, or using sustainable building techniques and innovative new materials, the juxtaposition between the old and the new is key. Through diverse case studies and interviews with leading architectural studios, The Home Upgrade inspires you to bridge the gap between the old and the new with sensitive interior design.

It is often said that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. In The Touch, Kinfolk and Norm Architects present an alternative: that good design is not only visually appealing—it engages all of the human senses. What do a museum in Marrakech, a mid-century apartment in Berlin, and a graveyard north of Venice all have in common? In The Touch, creative collaborators Nathan Williams of Kinfolk and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects explore the idea that these inspiring spaces, and many more like them, share the five essential tenets of haptic, human-centric design: materiality, light, color, nature, and community. Revealing some of the world’s most sensual architecture and interiors, The Touch offers a wealth of inspiration through stunning photography, philosophical essays, and practical tips from the minds of design industry leaders.
