Near & Far: Interiors I Love
The vibrant colors and rich patterns of Scandinavia, India, Turkey, and the Near and Far East, as well as the homes of artists, interior designers, and collectors are all featured in textile designer Lisa Fine’s Near & Far: Interiors I Love. The author shares the many sources of inspiration for her coveted hand-printed linens and her personal interior design aesthetic.
“Lisa Fine’s new book [is] a stunning compendium of interiors that inspire her work.” —Veranda
In Near & Far, Lisa Fine invites us into her homes in Dallas, New York, and Paris and then takes us along as she visits the places and people who have been her greatest sources of inspiration. Among her favored treasures are the Mughal palaces and gardens of India, the 18th-century home of Carl Linnaeus in Sweden, the whitewashed retreat of interior designer John Stefanidis on Patmos, the idyllic country house and garden of London-based designer Penny Morrison, and the storied house in the Tangier Casbah belonging to collectors Jamie Creel and Marco Scarani.
Evocatively photographed by Miguel Flores-Vianna and with a foreword by style editor Deborah Needleman, Near & Far not only provides a trove of design ideas, but also offers advice for anyone interested in giving full expression to their personal style.
“[Fine’s] book is filled with photos that represent her ideal of beautiful places.” —Houston Chronicle
