Interior Portraits: At Home with Cultural Pioneers and Creative Mavericks


Member Price

Interior Portraits: At Home with Cultural Pioneers and Creative Mavericks is a compelling take on California’s pioneering cultural and creative forces. Written and photographed by Leslie Williamson, her distinctive, warm photography of charming, often handcrafted interiors combined with personal, compelling texts create intimate, revealing portraits of the homes of design and lifestyle trailblazers. Featured homes include fashion designer Christina Kim’s airy loft in downtown Los Angeles; chef Alice Waters’s book-lined Craftsman bungalow in Berkeley; and artist Alma Allen’s studio and home in the desert, filled with his finished and in-progress biomorphic wood and bronze sculptures.

Powerfully personal and deeply authentic, this beautiful book will appeal not only to lovers of bohemian architecture but also to anyone who feels the pull of the West Coast lifestyle. Showcasing thirteen unique homes from the rugged coast of Big Sur to the sunlight-filled modernist structures of Los Angeles and San Diego, this book is a journey through the very best that California design has to offer.
