Philip Mitchell, Judith Nasatir
The elegant, clean classicism of Philip Mitchell s style is on full display in these homes, where he masterfully incorporates a wide-ranging mix of antiques, vintage collectibles, and contemporary pieces everything from inherited furniture collections to modern art in rooms that are filled with memories and warmth. As a master of what he calls modern maximalism, Mitchell embraces the challenge of taking wonderful things that a homeowner already has and making more of them. Once Mitchell has established a connecting thread among a variety of disparate pieces whether through finish, material, scale, colour, texture, or line he starts the process of building the relationships that bring a space to life. Brilliant photographs take readers on in-depth tours of nine homes, ranging from an elegant Upper East Side pied-a-terre to a classic cottage on the water in Nova Scotia. Mitchell s personal narrative in elegant text enlightens, while his takeaways accompanying each home help readers understand how to blend new and old, mix colours and patterns, and fill a home with an eclectic mix that is truly their own.
