5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 19 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Alidad: The Timeless Home (Hardcover)
This is the interior decorating book I've been waiting for. It is sumptuous,decadent, gorgeous. Each room is full of colour,texture and life. These are all rooms Alidad has created for clients or for himself. His bespoke creations show how layers of colour and furnishings and accoutrements from all genres and of great value or no value can be put together to create wonderful,livable rooms that are exciting and welcoming. The text is very readable and interesting and his comments echo my own ideas and ideals for creating and decorating a home as opposed to a house.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think he is one of the best interior designers., 10 Nov 2013

This review is from: Alidad: The Timeless Home (Hardcover)
Amazing book. Not that I could live with a lot of what he created, but how he could invent some of the things he did for the people in the middle east who obviously had great wealth. When he has done rooms for Europeans they have been very cosy and warm. He is similar to the late Renzo Mogardino.

5.0 out of 5 stars A casket of gems, 11 Oct 2013
This review is from: Alidad: The Timeless Home (Hardcover)
Like Madonna and Boris, the interior decorator Alidad is everywhere recognized by his first name alone. He is also always spoken of as being Persian, a description that perhaps alludes to the romantic world of caliphs and kiosks that his decorative schemes evoke. Alidad seduces both the eye and the brain with his complex layered rooms, where dense strata of colour and texture are built upon reassuringly solid foundations of practicality and technology, and The Timeless Home is rich in examples of both. The book brings together the best of Alidad's work over the last 25 years, and, like his jewel-box rooms, it too is a casket of gems. Open it and admire the treasures in front of you; look more closely and marvel at the intricacy of the work, the sophistication of the details, the beauty of each separate element, the way it all works together. Note the flow and movement of space and the mastery of proportion and scale. Anyone who has any interest in the art of the interior will take pleasure in this satisfying work.
