Albert Bush-Brown, Dianne Davis
Van Nostrand Reinhold, 1992 - Décoration intérieure - 263 pages
In error, CIP cites Bush-Brown as the author rather than the editor; this is a collective work, with essays from numerous contributors emphasizing the therapeutic aspects of space, light, landscape, music, art, and poetry. Recent designs displayed in some 250 illustrations (22 in color) show ways to achieve both privacy and community within settings that stimulate physical, intellectual, social, and aesthetic activity.
