Modern EclecticBook - 2001
Modern Eclectic will appeal to all those who love modern design but don't wish to live in the clinical environments often dictated by architects. Take a lead from interior designer Orianna Fielding Banks, whose own living room combines generous velvet sofas with silvery window screens made from CDs, bright modern wall finishes, and an antique chandelier, creating a thoroughly unique home.Beyond minimalism there is a more ornamental approach to modern interiors. The yearning for individualism is satisfied by combining interesting antiques or design classics with today's furniture, by being inventive with unusual textures and colors, and by commissioning custom-made pieces as focal points. Orianna gives pertinent advice on how to put an eclectic look together successfully and create a professional interior designed look in your own home.Over 250 glorious, inspirational photographs, specially shot in both Europe and North America for this book, reveal some of the best eclectic interiors, and the informative text provides you with the design guidelines you need to create your own inimitable version of the eclectic look.
