Beautifully photographed, this look into interior designer Muriel Brandolini’s sophisticated world includes profiles of select residences, including a seductive apartment marked by an entryway embellished with beaded song lyrics and an airy beach house with a stairwell of hanging embroidered lanterns. Considered a design laboratory, her legendary townhouse is shown in several iterations. Included are such signature details as fabric walls, slipper chairs covered in hand-pieced antique fabrics, found treasures, and Asian-style split bamboo window shades. This avant-garde style-setter shows that with an unfettered imagination one can create an alluring home environment.
