"A Tale of Interiors" Book

US$60per item

About

The whimsical, layered, incredibly chic, and livable interiors and the fresh and original insights of the coolest design duo fill every page of this treasure chest of a debut interiors book. Every Pierce & Ward home tells a story. Emily and Louisa believe that there is a beauty in the unfolding of a room that takes the eye dancing from one piece to the next, swirling over velvets of peach and gold, gliding over glass and marble, and stopping to take in the homeowner's precious sentimental favorites. As the designers for such Hollywood powerhouses, supermodels, and rock stars as Brie Larson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Dakota Johnson, Kate Hudson, and Karen Elson, Pierce & Ward artfully blend classic elements and fanciful touches, creating an irresistible kaleidoscope of patterns, textures, art, and objects. Stately striped wallpaper mixes with French florals. Brass-lion bookends sit beside trays inlaid with glinting mother-of-pearl. Milk-glass globes hang down hallways like glowing moons to guide one's path. Humble finds from eBay and lovingly worn textiles mix with museum-quality art and family photos. This book will teach readers about organized abundance and un-gaudy decadence, with a dash of restraint for good measure: it's an evocative and inspiring ode to the art of more. About the author: Louisa Pierce and Emily Ward met in 2012 and instantly knew they were kindred spirits. Soon after, they moved to Nashville and formed Pierce & Ward. Neither had formal interior design training; their friend Karen Elson was their first client. Their clients include Emma Roberts, Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Colin Hanks, and Lily Aldridge and Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon. Emily lives in Los Angeles with her partner, Giovanni Ribisi, and their twins. Louisa lives in Nashville with her husband, Austin Scaggs, and their two children.
