Creative Spaces completes the acclaimed trilogy of books by Geraldine James. This book introduces you to the homes of the people Geraldine James considers truly inspirational. From London and Milan to New York, we visit the houses, apartments and studios of people who all inhabit very different creative worlds. Amongst others, we glimpse inside the contemporary townhouse of renowned fashion designer Betty Jackson, the family home of Gisela Garcia-Escuela, one of the leading lights behind the Anthropologie stores, and are given a tour of the combined studio-archive-home of Italian designer Barnaba Fornasetti. Divided into chapters on Individual Eclecticism, The Art Lovers, Modern Industrialist, Carefully Curated Purists, The Archivists, and Everchanging Displays, their very titles give an inkling of the different styles and treasures to be found within the four walls of each property.
The home owners range from well-known names from the worlds of art, design and fashion, to private individuals, and range from a London council flat to a farm in upstate New York, but all have one thing in common - their living spaces are inspired and inspiring, unique, individual, personal, and never, ever run of the mill.
