Celebrated designer Mariette Himes Gomez works with the natural composition of her clients' apartments to highlight each room's successes - such as a Central Park view - and setbacks - the remnants of a previous owner's paint job. Working on luxury apartments in New York, London, and Florida, Gomez adds elegance and style with a personal touch to any space. From the placement of an antique French cabinet in a 1920s Rosario Candela apartment in New York City, to the replacement of mirrored halls for concrete floors in an oceanside deck in Palm Beach, Gomez takes us through her decorating inspirations and suggestions in this lavishly photographed book. She provides practical guidelines for building, buying, or renovating to create the perfect home, while illustrating how to instill flow and harmony in your overall design. Subscribing to the philosophy that less is more, Gomez reveals how to create homes of unparalleled beauty and grace. An inspirational guide for every design-minded apartment owner, builder, or renovator, "Apartments" illuminates the world of possibility that opens up when you let your apartment become your home.
