Product description

Review

Nicky Haslam has not only reinvented himself - he's reinvented English interior design, turning it around, twisting it and coming up with something exquisite and undreamt of by anyone else. Not one to pander to restraint or minimalism, Haslam goes all out for his individual interiors: adding pillars, columns, fake doors don't daunt him in the slightest and his commissions for furniture, lights, wallpaper and carpets, made to order, will no doubt one day end up in an art gallery for their beauty and perfection. Decorator to the stars, and a star himself, he has been fortunate enough to carry out his dreams and visions the world over. In this, his first book, he explains his ideas, methods and the inspiration behind the multitude of fabulous interiors which fill this wonderful book. His sound design advice is lucidly given to ensure the everyday person can translate it into their own homes. As he says, "decoration is about making people look prettier and feel happier" and although most of us cannot afford hand-painted wallpaper or marble floors, we can, as he often does, improvise. For an indulgent, inspirational read, transport yourself to a world of perfection, beauty and "Sheer Opulence" with Britain's number one interior designer. - Lucy Watson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Nicholas Haslam has been an interior decorator since 1971. Educated at Eton, where he decorated his study with fake leopard-skin walls and a carpet of artificial grass, he moved to New York in his twenties to work as Art Director of US Vogue, then lived on a ranch in Arizona and latterly in Los Angeles. Now based in London, he designs town and country interiors all over England, Europe, and the US for private clients including British royalty, celebrities, and rock stars. His clients include Bryan Ferry and Ringo Starr, as well as Vanity Fair and the New Yorker. He works from his design studio just off Sloane Square in London. Nicholas Haslam writes on style, travel, and social affairs for Vogue, The World of Interiors, House & Garden, Tatler and The Spectator. His autobiography Redeeming Features is published by Random House this November.
