An inspirational collection of 40 features from the Saturday "Times" magazine, giving insight into real homes and lifestyles. The focus is on links between people, their personalities, their daily lives and the spaces in which they choose to live.
It is often within the home, one's personal space, that an individual's identity and personal style can be truly expressed or revealed. The Times Book of Innovative Interiors gives a unique opportunity to see behind doors that are seldom or never opened to the public. A specially edited selection of 40 features from the multi-award winning Saturday Times magazine. Innovative Interiors gives intimate insights into real homes and lifestyles, from designer apartments to rural idylls and from seaside retreats to city-centre penthouses. The focus is on the links between people, their personalities, their daily lives and the spaces in which they choose to live.
Vinny Lee, interiors editor of "The Times Magazine" introduces the interiors of homes many not seen before in print. All belonging to leading designers of the day - interior, fashion, glass, ceramic - they are an eclectic mix of the contemporary, classic, kitsch, colourful and converted. From the expected opulence of fashion designer Emanuel Ungaro's South of France home to the oriental feel of ceramicist Peter Ting's South London home, they reflect the designers' tastes, imposing their identity strongly on their personal surroundings. Rustic, futuristic, minimalist and traditional, the range of styles stresses each designer's individuality, explaining why they are so successful in their particular fields. Gloriously photographed and accompanied by the informative, easy text of Vinny Lee, this book allows a peep through the keyholes of some of the most desirable homes in the world. - Lucy Watson
