Based on Vicente Wolf ‘s belief that the classical elements-earth, water, air, and fire-form the basic building blocks of great interior design styles, the book is divided into four sections. Through breathtaking photography (by Wolf himself) and an engaging narrative, Vicente Wolf walks the reader through the process of designing around these decorating ideas!
Air showcases projects that contain a lightness of spirit, open in feeling, with a color scheme that creates an atmosphere without boundaries. Earth features grounded decoration ideas, where stone, wood, and natural textures form the foundation. Water shows fluidity and environments with reflective shades of blues and aqua, while deep colors, reds, and dramatic qualities are showcased in Fire.
The dwellings presented, in rich detail, include more than a dozen projects, such as Long Island beach houses, Manhattan apartments, and sumptuous homes in New York, Connecticut, and California. Through this unique concept, Wolf proves why he is the uncontested master of cool, luminous rooms that combine strength and sensuality.
