Old World Interiors: A Modern Interpretation by David Naylor (Gibbs Smith, Publisher, $40.00, September 2008) shows how using wood workers, furniture makers, stoneworkers, and tile artists can modernize and renew contemporary style while still incorporating the organic beauty of the old world. Using classic old world characteristics like arches, columns, intricate floor designs, and beamed ceilings, Naylor creates something new in conjunction to rejuvenating the old.
Old World Interiors constructs a tradition that is uniquely the homeowner’s. One that reflects today’s world while still incorporating the blueprint of yesterday. Chapters include Old World, New World, Luxe Americana, Contemporary Comfort, and Mixing It Up. Wonderful insights into the interior designer’s mind, a fun and lively “Confessions” section as well as 160 color photographs and drawings.
