The mediterranean interiors in this book reflect the color and flavor of this part of the world with its blend of tradition, brilliant improvization and more modern architectural interpretations of classical themes. Lisa Lovett-Smith has chosen twenty-two homes, each with its own distinctive style and atmosphere, that capture the essence of Mediterranean decorative style in its immense variety. Mediterranean Livingis a remarkable glimpse into the homes and holiday hideaways of creative people whose decorative tastes range from the traditional to the ultra-modern or minimalist. Each home is individual, but always respects the Mediterranean instinct for the simple and the beautiful. The recurring elements in these seaside homes--color, terracotta tiles, whitewash, simple ceramic styles, the play of light and shadow--reflect current decorating themes and ideals. Lisa Lovett-Smith's accompanying text interprets each interior, focusing on the personality of the owner and the decorative details that comprise the overall effect of the homes shown, be it in Tangiers, the Bosphorus, Athens, the CÔte D'Azur, Beirut, Hammamet, or the Mediterranean islands. Mediterranean Livingshows an abundance of both traditional and unusual interiors, and is full of original details that will delight and inspire.
