Contemporary interiors are as much a reflection of personal taste as they are of the time period we live in a balance between internal and external influences. What was in vogue 10 years ago is often seen as out-of-date or pass, while the classic style of 50 years ago may reappear, integrating with our modern sensibilities. This volume examines the variations, encompassing commercial and residential interiors from East to West and all points in between. Incorporating minimalist tendencies with baroque details, ethnic artifacts and rustic flourishes, designers sample from many styles and cultures to provide their seamless visions. Deliberate use of color, lighting and texture provide for numerous contextual variations and moods. Includes hotels, restaurants, designer showrooms, offices, converted churches, houses, apartments and more.
