Featuring an array of dwellings from around the world - from the glass skyscrapers of Saint Petersburg, to the sunny shores of California - The Big Book of Interior Design is entirely devoted to the design elements that populate our private spaces. The book studies varying styles of interior design in depth, such as Vintage, Minimal, Surrealist, Pop and Oriental, offering a critical and historical analysis of the main features of each style. There is also a focus on the key objects of a particular style, not just the functional pieces such as lamps, mirrors, carpets and sofas, but also decorative objects and accessories. It offers practical, realistic ideas to the architect, designer, the family wishing to renovate their home and to all of those who love the varied world of interiors.
