The problem with Thanksgiving being late is that now
Christmas is early! Technically we have a mere 21 days to panic. I swore I'd be
ahead of the game this year- but alas- as per usual- NO! Oh well, happy
In Brian J. McCarthy's new book Luminous Interiors, just
released from Stewart, Tabori & Chang, Bunny Williams writes in the forward
that Brian "has an incredible eye and passion for art, always seeking new
talent. Because of this knowledge his projects are always unique, and the
variety is that of a truly great designer." How true! The work throughout
is divergently diverse and it is abundantly clear that this is a man who
listens carefully to his client and avoids the "branded " look- no two
projects are alike.
Although the book features nine luxurious residences, I
chose to focus on one as I had the privilege of seeing this spectacular hotêl
particular- an Atlanta property and intense collaboration between Brian and a
very talented friend of mine, architect Peter Block. To say the home is
extraordinary is quite the understatement! After thirty-five trips to Europe
and a collaboration with the venerable Feau & Cie in Paris, a fantasy was
realized. The grandeur, opulence, layers and intricacy of this home are
stunning in every imaginable way possible.
