Acclaimed as one to the country's top one hundred interior designers by both Metropolitan Home and Architectural Digest, Vicente Wolf is the uncontested master of cool, luminous rooms that combine strength and sensuality. From a rich but disciplined palette of materials, he creates a signature minimalism that is simple, handsome, and eminently comfortable. In Learning to See, Wolf shares the secrets of his alchemy, insights into a design process that he says starts with taking his traveler's eye into every environment. If you, like he, can simply transfer the special excitement and intense sensations you feel when you are in nature or when you first encounter something exotic to the way you want to feel on entering a room for the first time, you can learn to see. With incisive text and more than one hundred sixty photographs, Wolf walks you through this process. While providing step-by-step instructions on such practical matters as how to create floor plans, treat windows, arrange furniture, hang pictures, use flowers and mirrors and other accents, he helps instill confidence to trust your own aesthetic inspiration.
