Intimate photographs and stories reveal the private spaces of public figures.
Whether it's the memory (or fantasy) of our childhood home, or the place we decorate, show off, work from, or take refuge in as adults, it's always rich with meaning or fraught with intent.
To understand it better, 50 remarkable people of our time, many of whom have made their mark in the fields of architecture, home design, and the decorative arts, open their homes and their hearts to the subject. Their emotional responses--rich with design ideas, thought-provoking philosophies, and surprising obsessions and eccentricities--both fascinate and inspire. Famous contributors include Donatella Versace, Paul Smith, Michael Graves, Miranda Richardson, David Rockwell, Tommy Hilfiger, Andree Putman, Sebastian Coe, Donna Hay, Kenzo Takada, Jonathan Adler, and Lulu Guinness
Great inspiration--clever design ideas, innovative philosophies, and endless enthusiasm
