A Passion for Collecting: Decorating with Art and Antiques
A celebration of the elegant art of accumulation, A Passion for Collecting takes readers on a fabulous journey through the homes of some of the world's finest collectors, including designers Bill Blass and Versace, mixed-media artist Arman, and fashion icon Tina Chow. Glamorous assemblages of contemporary art, antiques, and eclectic curios offer a wealth of ideas for displaying more humble items for maximum visual effect. Culled from the pages of Elle Decor, 300 beautiful color photos amply show that seemingly inanimate objects bring life and warmth to one's surroundings.
