My bookshelves are filling up this fall with so wonderful many new releases.
I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy from Vendome Press of Lisa Fine’s book, Near & Far: Interiors I Love.
It is a beauty and a visual delight full of many layered and collected interiors around the globe that make my maximalist self rejoice!
In Near & Far, Lisa Fine invites us into her homes in Dallas, New York, and Paris and takes us along as she visits the places and people who have been her greatest sources of inspiration. Among her favored treasures are the Mughal palaces and gardens of India, the 18th-century home of Carl Linnaeus in Sweden; the whitewashed retreat of interior designer John Stefanidis on Patmos, the idyllic country house and garden of London-based designer Penny Morrison, and the storied house in the Tangier Casbah belonging to collectors Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani.
Evocatively photographed by Miguel Flores-Vianna and with a foreword by style editor Deborah Needleman, Near & Far not only provides a trove of design ideas, but also offers advice for anyone interested in giving full expression to their personal style.
Mississippi-born Lisa Fine is the founder of Lisa Fine Textiles, a line of hand-printed linens sold in showrooms worldwide. Fine has been a contributing editor for Elle Decor and House Beautiful, and currently is for Town & Country.
Miguel Flores Vianna has been an editor, writer, and photographer for more than twenty-five years. His photography is regularly published in T, AD, World of Interiors, Vogue, Cabana, and Town & Country.
Deborah Needleman, formerly editor in chief of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, WSJ Magazine, and Domino, is currently editor at large for Harper’s Bazaar.
