One of the most anticipated design books of the fall is finally out – Decoration by Stephen Sills. Sills is one of the legends of design, a member of Architectural Digest's AD100 and one of AD's "30 Deans of American Design", and has recently been included in Elle Décor’s A List of the Top 25 Designers. His first book Dwellings (which he co-authored with James Hunniford) is in the reference library of my designer and architect, and I referred to this book quite a bit during my house build. Stephen Sills’ new book Decoration showcases his solo residential work, and is a much bigger book both in size and scope. It is exceptional – destined to become another design classic.
One of Sills’ signatures is the way he mixes cultures and pieces from different centuries so that they seem to speak to one another. His designs are simultaneously classical and contemporary, layered with tranquil hues, unusual finishes, dramatic modern art, and museum-quality furnishings. Filled with luxurious fabrics, furnishings from across centuries, and unusual finishes, his work is polished and seemingly effortless.
