Summary The first book from acclaimed Brooklyn-based interior designer Kathryn Scott, whose handcrafted interiors evoke a sense of serenity, harmony, and simplicity. Kathryn Scott is a designer whose disciplined eye results in interiors praised for their beauty and minimalism, as well as their artisanal details. Through ten residences, bookended by Scotts own acclaimed five-story, nineteenth-century Italianate brownstone in Brooklyn Heights and her ravishing country house, the book explores the idea of home as sanctuary, a place to rest, replenish, and refocus. From a Parisian-inspired neoclassical town house, to an elegant Central Park West penthouse, to a modern retreat in the Hudson Valley, the houses profiled here showcase the importance of architectural detailing, the classical rules of proportion, and the importance of integrating beautiful materials and finishes in uncommon ways. Interwoven with the stories of the houses are explorations of the themes found in Scotts work. This book is a celebration of simplicity, beautiful detailing, and unexpected materials and styles.
