50 LESSONS TO LEARN FROM FRANK LLOYD WRI

50 Lessons to Learn from Frank Lloyd Wright begins with a simple question. What lessons can designers today learn from Frank Lloyd Wright? Unlike recent books focusing on Wright’s tumultuous personal life and the Taliesin Fellowship, and equally unlike certain works that paint Wright as a mythical hero or genius, this handsome and valuable volume aims to reveal some of the design tools Wright used to create exceptional architecture, interiors, and landscapes—and how we may glean insight from an American master and find inspiration for the thoughtful design of our own homes. By means of succinct examples, pithy texts by noted architecture experts Aaron Betsky and Gideon Fink Shapiro, and evocative visuals provided by photographer Andrew Pielage, they share fifty lessons, or "learning points," with an eye to Wright-designed houses and interiors, ranging from "Let Nature Inspire You," "Screen, Don’t Close," and "Embroider Rooms with Textiles," to "Look to Asia," "Design for Resilience" and "Balance the Whole." Each lesson is accompanied by color photographs, original Wright drawings, newly commissioned diagrams, thoughtful analysis by the authors, and pearls of wisdom gathered from the master's trove of writings on architecture and design. Beyond specific lessons, this volume offers an informal yet richly detailed introduction to this seminal figure, world-famous for his romantic Fallingwater and magical Guggenheim Museum, and will be of much interest to the budding architecture enthusiast as well as to the interior designer, to those seeking ideas for their own homes, and to fans of Frank Lloyd Wright looking for just the right book.

A SUMMER PLACE. LIVING BY THE SEA

For this ode to summer living, noted designer and author Tricia Foley discusses how to create airy and relaxed homes, which capture the essence of the seaside. A Summer Place reflects the natural charm, understated beauty, and sophistication of the properties of notable tastemakers of Long Island's idyllic seaside community of Bellport-Brookhaven, where Foley resides. This beautifully photographed collection of homes offers inspirational ideas for making your home a personal sanctuary. Featured are modern residences by the sea designed around their water views, nineteenth-century shingle-style cottages that have been restored for today's living, and artist retreats filled with color, pattern, and unique style. Many of these houses, with their screened porches, handcrafted outbuildings, and summer gardens have ideas that translate to seaside living anywhere. Some are decorated with subtle hues of sky blue, white floorboards, and comfortable rustic or contemporary furnishings. The grounds vary from manicured lawns that roll down to the sea to wild landscapes of seagrass, and lovely pergolas dripping with wisteria to working cutting gardens. With sections on summer decorating style, casual outdoor entertaining, seasonal flowers, and weekend guest tips, this book shares several ways to enjoy summer living at home.
