Rosamund Bernier, European Decoration, Creative Contemporary Interiors
Bernier, Georges and Rosamund. European Decoration, Creative Contemporary Interiors. First Edition. 1969. Hardcover in pictorial covers (no dust jacket) in very good minus condition—there is a third party gift inscription to the flyleaf and minor fraying to the covers.
The follow-up to The Best in European Decoration, this book is the second compendium of design reporting that first appeared in Georges and Rosamund Bernier’s Paris-based art monthly L’ŒIL. The text is translated into English for the first time here. The projects span the continent. They include London townhouses, Venetian palazzos, villas on the French Riviera, and Parisian apartments, including the apartments of Marc Bohan and Karl Lagerfeld, the Palazzo Brandolini, and the home of Gianni and Marella Agnelli.
“Somehow foreigners living in Paris seem to have a gift for finding the best views of the city.”
