“The author reviews the concerns that determine architects’ choices in designing their own environments, and notes how they individually deal with such matters as situation, space, scale, balance, color, light, and all the factors involved in creating a home that meets their needs and interests. The book is rich in suggestions and solutions for beautifying and improving one’s own surroundings.”
Barbara Plumb was editor of the “Living” section of Vogue magazine in the 1970s and Senior editor of Pantheon Books.
