The Spirited Homes of Hunt Slonem (Hardcover)
An iconic American artist's self-proclaimed life's work--bringing historic mansions to life with bold color, antiques, myriad collectibles, and objets galore.
"My homes are my life's work--making old houses into a new form of my art," says Hunt Slonem in his preface. Extraordinary photography, capsule summaries of each building's history, and a sprinkling of anecdotes open the doors to Slonem's personal and creative world from a new perspective. This book about his idiosyncratic, maximalist interior design style--how he employs color, arranges an abundance of antique furniture, exhibits his personal art and objects, mixes antique art with his own contemporary works, and displays myriad collections is awe-inspiring and inspirational. "More is more" is a fit adage for what this book reveals.
