The Art of Home

About the Item

The first book from designer Sara Story, who combines a global bohemian sensibility with a passion for art to curate clean but striking rooms that balance style with adventure. With a keen eye for art and having spent her childhood in Japan, Singapore, and the United States, rising star designer Sara Story brings a unique perspective to all of her projects. Drawing inspiration from her extensive travels and passion for art and fashion, her work combines bold, contemporary art with antique pieces from every corner of the world to create extraordinary homes for her clients and her own family. She exacts her aesthetic vision with a style that combines modern with bohemian, creating well-collected, polished environments that feature crisp, elegant, and comfortable design gestures. Her first book of interiors features a selection of homes located in areas as diverse as Austin, Texas; Boulder, Colorado; and Beverly Hills, California. The book also includes Story’s own three homes, each of which was designed in its own distinct manner to bring an incredible marriage of architecture and interiors to their relative locations. From her contemporary Texas ranch, to her Gramercy Park townhouse and her historic home on the Hudson River, all are completely different but feature a common thread of layering, collections, and a dash of whimsy. With essays on creativity, craftsmanship, and mood, all new photography, and never-before-published projects, the book will be a must-have for fans of unexpected interiors About The Author Sara Story’s booming New York–based international design practice put her on the global map years ago. Her work has been featured frequently in Architectural Digest, Vogue Living, Galerie, and the New York Times among others. She was named to the 1st Dibs 50 and Elle Décor’s Top 5 Designers to Watch. She has designed a collection of hardware with S. A. Baxter and two wallpaper collections.

  • Finding Home The Houses of Pursley Dixon
    By Rizzoli International Publications
    Located in New York, NY
    Author Ken Pursley and Jacqueline Terrebonne, Foreword by Suzanne Kasler In their first book, acclaimed architects Ken Pursley and Craig Dixon explore how to create gracious homes with welcoming entryways, soulful interiors, inviting porches, and ebullient gardens. Founded on the simple principle “Build beautiful things,” the architectural team of Pursley Dixon, like populist architects Bobby McAlpine and Jeff Dungan, is known for blending elements of tradition with a modern lifestyle. In Finding Home, they share 15 stunning houses in three distinct styles: rustic mountain escapes, dreamy retreats by the water, and elegant houses in town. Each house has its own thoughtful visual narrative, but all are connected on an innate and authentic level by their sense of proportion, attention to detail, and a marvelous affinity with nature, displayed in their soothing neutral palettes, oversize windows that bring the outdoors in, and natural materials such as rough-hewn stone and unfinished wood. Little touches of humanity await discovery, such as a sleeping nook perched right out into the highest branches of a tree. These eccentricities and secrets add to the distinctly Southern sense of warmth and refuge these homes provide, homes whose open interiors and majestic porches easily accommodate family and gatherings. Featuring their own interior design work as well as that of acclaimed decorators such as Suzanne Kasler, Phoebe Howard, and Circa Interiors...
