In his latest book, Jeffrey Bilhuber distills thirty years of expertise and creative inspiration designing beautiful and brilliantly modern rooms. Presenting a diverse range of decorator s most recent and important work from around the country, the book is centered around 30 signature statements by Bilhuber" "pithy and insightful bedrock principles and axioms that have fueled designer s process. Rounding out these statements Sara Ruffin Costello, the highly regarded writer and editor, sheds light on Bilhuber s inimitable style through charming anecdotes and bright, rich descriptions, revealing a decorator at the top of his profession.
Anchoring the ideas that drive each project, the statements represent different angles from which to appreciate the decorator s vision and mastery of his craft. Some are broad and philosophical: " What s liberating is to be fearless " and " Modernity is not about a new material, it s about how you navigate your way through the world. "And others, specific and practical: " It s easy to get white wrong. It takes talent to get it right "and " It s powerfully important to sit at the table and talk to each other. " Capturing the breadth and beauty of Bilhuber s work in city townhouses and rambling country houses throughout the country in New York City, Palm Beach, Aspen, and San Francisco, each project reveals itself to be a standard-bearer of great style, reflecting the decorator s optimistic and classically informed point of view."
