Fabulous THE DAZZLING INTERIORS OF TOM BRITT MITCHELL OWENS FOREWORD BY JOAN JULIET BUCK

This first book on the famed designer, renowned for rooms with bold color palettes, strongly graphic style contrasts, multicultural allusions, and stylish innovations, is a sweeping survey of his fifty-year career. Ever since Tom Britt opened his New York–based firm in 1964, he has been creating dramatic environments for his high-profile clients on multiple continents. His masterful design palette, with a wonderfully exotic slant, includes plush upholstered furniture, boldly patterned carpets, seductive lighting, and an elegantly theatrical use of mirrors. The resulting spaces are perfect for luxuriating and entertaining. From a chic pied-à-terre in San Francisco and tantalizing rooms at New York’s famed Dakota apartment building to suburban manses in America’s Midwest and a palace apartment in Jaipur, Britt’s inimitable style merges saturated colors with an easy luxury. This book is necessary reading for anyone interested in the modern masters of interior design. Tom Britt has been a presence in the interior design industry both nationally and worldwide for over fifty years. A native of Kansas City, Missouri, he has been extensively featured in Architectural Digest and has appeared in many other domestic publications such as Elle Decor, House Beautiful, House & Garden, the New York Times, and W magazine. Mitchell Owens is the decorative arts editor of Architectural Digest and the former interior-design director of Elle Decor. He has contributed to the New York Times, The World of Interiors, Departures, Travel + Leisure, and other publications. Joan Juliet Buck is an American writer and actress. She was the editor-in-chief of French Vogue from 1994 to 2001.
