Summary
HOUSES, APARTMENTS, FLATS, ETC. Whether the living space is large or small, anyone can create a modern interior. This ambitious book is all about clean lines, elegant color combinations, maximizing indoor-outdoor relationships, artfully collecting and displaying objects, and utilizing open areas for lounging, cooking, and dining. Hundreds of photographs reveal private homes around the world, in particular from places where modern living has achieved its best expression--such as California, Brazil, Scandinavia, and Australia--but also from places where modern forms have been fused with vernacular styles or set against exotic vegetation. From desert to jungle, from city to country, Living Modern offers a boundless resource for achieving a personal vision of contemporary stylishness.
