Book Report-Muriel's World.

There have been a number of remarkable design books come out this fall, but one of our absolute favorites has to be The World of Muriel Brandolini. We've always admired Muriel's talent and her ability to layer pattern, color and texture. But it's her skillful way of seamlessly weaving together a range of furniture styles and artwork that really caused us to first sit up and take note. While we tend to like things a bit more understated, we can't help but respect Muriel's sophisticated design sensibility and impeccable taste level which this book illustrates beautifully.

Part I of the book is a deeply personal account of Brandolini's life, including her early memories of Vietnam, her arrival in New York City, and the accidental launch of her decorating career.

Part II is compromised of eleven residential projects, beautifully photographed by Peter Estersohn. The residences range from a New York City apartment with an intimate powder room delicately beaded in butterflies and blossoms, to an airy Southampton house awash in sorbet colors.


In conjunction with the launch of the book, Phillips de Pury & Company will present Brandolini's collection of furniture in a pioneering single-owner auction on October 21st, 2011. This is a great opportunity for those of us who have an appreciation for her work to see some of her unique designs in person. "I want people to enter the space and be transported. They should feel as if they are in a home, and see how a contemporary metal console can be placed next to a Regency style banquette." says Brandolini. We're certainly looking forward to seeing this installation and if you live in the city we strongly suggest you stop by to check it out as well. Regardless, you should definitely get your hands on a copy of her new book. The rich photography and stylish interiors are sublime and one can't help but exit Muriel's World feeling enthused and inspired. This is another book that gets an A++.
