An exclusive look behind the closed doors of Hong Kong's most extravagant and unusual homes, this elegant illustrated book reveals the interior style that has given the island its reputation for excess, exoticism, and masterly application of East-Meets-West aesthetics. Private Hong Kong invites you into the secluded country residence of entrepreneur David Tang, the golden fantasy palace of leading socialites Kai Bong and Brenda Chau, the stately governor's mansion, and a luxurious Chinese junk complete with marble bathroom and Renoir painting. In addition to these and many other homes, the book includes a Visitor's Guide, listing the places to see and be seen in while staying in the city, and a Chinese Decorative Arts chapter that will inspire even the most informed collectors.
