SENSE OF PLACE: DESIGN INSPIRED BY WHERE WE LIVE

by Caitlin Flemming and Julie Goebel (Abrams)

This mother-daughter team of interior designers, who are also noted travel writers, have recognized something fundamental but profound in what makes a house into a home. Flemming and Goebel look to the world around them—and wherever they go—with an attention to detail that any one of us can adopt (they teach us how in these pages). Both of them show how they and other designers respond to their surroundings, whether it’s the English countryside or a Mallorcan street, the desert of New Mexico or the palm tree–lined streets of Los Angeles, and how such elements can and should work their way into our homes. The houses featured here reflect an interplay between their locales and the finished rooms inside. Upon reading this book, you’ll look at your hometown, your street, your garden in new ways and for inspiration in how you live at home.
