Mona Hajj is a master of interior design. Her choices of colors, fabrics, and furnishings and her marvelous sense of scale transform even the most mundane of rooms into a magical kingdom. —Allan Greenberg For the last two decades, Mona Hajj has been crafting interiors that combine a global vision with an American emphasis on elegance, comfort, and simplicity. Hajj's body of work is grounded in classicism yet influenced by the contemporary; her international upbringing—she was born in Africa and educated in Europe, Lebanon, and the United States—is evidenced in exceptional rugs, antiques, and fixtures. Interior Visions showcases Hajj's distinct and distinctly original aesthetic voice. Beautifully photographed projects—from a beach house in Delaware to a John Russell Pope–designed house in Baltimore, from an apartment in New York City to the Embassy of Luxembourg in Washington, D.C.—display a thoughtful treatment of architecture, color, and lighting, as well as an eye for the defining detail. Among the myriad culturally and historically diverse adornments are Persian rugs, Flemish tapestries, Japanese screens, Italian chandeliers, and Chinese chargers. Finally, two residences presented in great detail—the author's own apartment in a historic Baltimore building and an expansive horse farm in Kentucky—demonstrate a vision that is at once specific and inclusive, personal and grand, intimate and sumptuous. Interior design is all about how things feel instinctively, the special magic that flourishes when different elements are joined together. —Mona Hajj

Award-winning photographer Kerri McCaffety looks at the city's most innovative and iconic interiors in a quest to define the essence of New Orleans's unique style.What makes New Orleans different from everywhere else? The answer is its history: three centuries of complex cultural influences-French, Spanish, and African-converging in a unique climate and a strategic location at the mouth of the Mississippi River. Today New Orleans style is moving forward while still embracing the extravagance of the past. The grandeur of the Greek revival architecture and the drama of the live oaks are tempered by a fresh, more relaxed elegance that respects classical proportions and details but introduces a more contemporary vocabulary in furnishings and accessories.

Celebrated interior designer Suzanne Rheinstein focuses on the use of rooms—from entries to outdoor spaces—that reflect her relaxed, elegant style, in which beauty and comfort are paramount. Suzanne Rheinstein is a master at translating traditional style into something fresh and elegant. In Rooms for Living, she shows how to achieve a calm and livable environment in casual or more formal settings.

Included are examples of refashioned spaces, such as a neglected living room that has been repurposed for reading and writing, and a kitchen that has been expanded to accommodate informal meals. Rheinstein also offers innovative ideas on how to make a statement with an entryway by adding vibrant color, dress a bed for ultimate comfort and romance with luxurious pillows, display books in an understated way, and create a unique party atmosphere. No small detail is overlooked. Beautifully photographed, this inspiring book is a must-have for design-savvy individuals.

Inspired by Frances Schultz’s popular House Beautiful magazine series on the makeover of her East Hampton house, Bee Cottage, what began as a decorating book evolved into a memoir combining the best elements of both: beautiful photos and a compelling personal story. Schultz taps into what she learned during her renovations of Bee Cottage—determining how each area in the house and garden would be used and furnished—to unravel the question of how a mature, intelligent, successful woman could have made such a mess of her personal life. As she figures out each room over a period of years, Frances finds a new path in life, also a continual process. She comes to learn that, like decorating a home, our lives must adapt to who we are and what we need at different points along the way. The Bee Cottage Story is part memoir, part home decorating guide. Frances discusses the kinds of useful, commonsense design issues that professionals take for granted and the rest of us just may not think of, prompting the reader to examine and discover her own “truth” in decorating—and in her life.

In Kentucky: Historic Houses and Horse Farms, pre-eminent architectural and interiors photographer Pieter Estersohn guides us through Bluegrass Country, the legendary landscape around Lexington, Kentucky. The wealthiest town west of the Alleghenies prior to the Civil War, Lexington has a rich architectural and cultural history that is manifest in the elegant houses within and around the center. Equally compelling is the equestrian heritage that has made Lexington the “Horse Capital of the World.” Among the properties presented are Ashland, an Italian-inspired villa built for distinguished statesman and orator Henry Clay; Pope Villa, one of only two extant residences by Benjamin Latrobe, the architect of the U.S. Capitol; Waveland, a completely intact Greek Revival estate from the 1830s; and Pleasant Hill, the largest restored Shaker community in the country. Dramatic aerial photographs celebrate the rolling landscape and expansive horse farms, including Gainesway Farm, a 1,500 acre site that has produced an impressive roster of legendary Throughbreds. Kentucky is a multifaceted and compelling portrait of a unique part of our country that combines a reverence for history and Southern traditions of hospitality and generosity with a vital present.
