Описание: The interior designer's singular vision revealed through an extraordinary collection of her acclaimed rooms. With her inimitable flair for style, Charlotte Moss has led a celebrated career in the interior design world. Recently honored with Elle Decor's Vision Award, Moss's design philosophy of "couture living" describes her preference for gracefully curated spaces in which one is meant to live, enjoy, and entertain. Charlotte Moss Decorates affords the reader a glimpse into the methods behind her magic. For each of the rooms featured--from a sumptuous Directoire-style bedroom inspired by the incomparable Pauline de Rothschild to a gentlemen's billiard room with rich details and a smart tailored feel--Moss breaks down the various stages of her design process, revealing her inspiration and storyboards, as well as sketches and notes she develops for every project. In each chapter, she offers the reader quick "doses" of decorating advice with her signature "Why Not?" decorating maxims. The book also includes Moss's recommendations for her favorite flowers and fragrances for the final flourish in creating the perfect room. Her interiors, with a nod to both the historical elegance of the past and the modern necessities of today (comfort and livability), are truly sublime spaces. With over 200 sumptuous photographs, Moss graciously invites the reader to be engaged, inspired, and "ready to decorate."
