Vivid color, specially commissioned artisanal pieces, and exquisite midcentury furnishings define the work of interior designer Amy Lau. Inspired by her passion for nature and abstract art, she incorporates elements of both into every space while tailoring each experience to the personalities and lifestyles of her clients.   Thirteen residential interiors, from glass-walled city apartments to demure Hamptons cottages, are presented in luscious full-color photography; lifely text peppered with design tips captures the designer’s energy and explains her creative process. Prior to opening her firm in 2001, Lau managed the prestigious Lin/Weinberg Gallery in New York City—specialisits in twentieth-century furniture and decorative objects—and her love of this period permeates her work to this day. Her designs are sophisticated yet exuberant and full of impeccably restored original pieces yet entirely livable.   Amy Lau’s belief in curating rather than merely decorating spaces results in collections arranged to complement the most unique feature of each individual object, color schemes that relate to a property’s location or enhance a specific view, and in one-of-a-kind textiles designed to subtly mirror a room’s other artwork or furnishings. A final chapter details the artists, movements, places, and visionaries that have had the largest influence on Lau’s development of her own unique style, and encourages all interested in design to create a similar catalog of admired pieces in order to begin refining and defining their own tastes.

Amy Lau is my favorite designer. The rooms she designs are so beautiful and clean looking lines. She really has an eye for color matching, and I also love the midcentury furnishings she works with. The book is a wonderful addition to my interior design library.

Ms. Lau has a sense of color and style that really resonates with me. I just purchased a home built in 1960 with great 1960's character. I was stumped for design ideas as my current furniture wouldn't do the home justice. I saw the cover of her book, fell in love, looked for it at a book store (I've been tricked before by pretty covers only to find that there is nothing of any interest inside the book), loved it even more and then ordered it. Who would have thought that the elements of glamour, comfort, and warmth would marry so easily? The interior design is so well done that just by looking at the photographs you can see which characteristics of the elements used deliver the look. I will be looking for curvy and unusual shaped furniture with legs, to help convey the same fluid and airy impact that Ms. Lau so effortlessly designs with 60's period pieces. If you like retro period then this is a wonderful book for you. This is not Sister Parish.

Amazing unique spaces and design. A true design inspiration. Definitely a book worth owning. Exceeded my expectation eapecially after hearing the designer speak in person.

Hand's down the most inspiring retro modern book that I have seen. Jaw-dropping pictures of beautiful spaces and very EXPRESSIVE design to boot ! Wait no longer if you are into this style of design.

If you are serous about design, you need this book on your shelf. Ms. Lau cuts through the mundane and gives us real useable tools and inspiration beyond what I anticipated. Color, custom designs, a warm and thoughtful environment are just a few things Ms. Lau's clients are lucky enough to receive from her and we are lucky to now have the inside track.
