Metropolitan Places

Interiors from New York, London, Barcelona, Milan, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin

In this presentation of the striking art and design of 32 homes in eight major cities in Europe and North America, well-known photographer Heyert aims to provide, not how-to decorating information, but a photographic appreciation of a variety of styles and artistic visions. Here she emphasizes the visual effects achieved by owners and designers of wealth and celebrity in homes in New York, Barcelona, Milan, Mexico City, Paris, Berlin, London, and Los Angeles. The homes range from the traditional, filled with heirlooms, to the avant-garde, playful, or shocking. The 250 full-color photographs reveal a rich array of sights for all tastes, with Heyert's accompanying text explaining the design choices of such owners, architects, and artists as Rudolf Nureyev, Frank Gehry, Charles Jencks, Luis Barragan, Andy Warhol, Bette Midler, and Francois Mitterand. Appropriate for collections of design photography.
