The Bookshelf: “The Tailored Interior” By Greg NataleAuthor:Candace Abbott
Posh black and white tile floors, plush throws, white marble offset with dark timber, velvet sofas, and Valentino coffee table books? Those are just a few of the things you’ll find between the pages of Greg Natale’s latest, The Tailored Interior.
The gorgeous 253 page book, with a foreword by Jonathan Adler, is all about ways to transform spaces into bold rushes of color and pattern while maintaining the comfort of the space. With chapters bearing titles like “Objects,” “Balance,” “Cohesion,” and “Layering,” Greg gives a step-by-step guide and expert advice for crafting sophisticated living rooms, bathrooms, entryways, dining spaces, kitchens and more as he showcases 18 impeccable homes that he’s given his master touch.
Greg, who has been revered as Designer of the Year twice at the 2014 and 2011 Belle Coco Republic Interior Design Awards, shows that luxury is doable through small steps such as gilded accents or even a bold wallpaper design. He also shows everyone, from the seasoned designer to the home decorator, how to work with monochromatic looks with ease and why geometry is so important in luxe design. Moreover, Greg shares his philosophy behind why a tailored approach is the best approach, every piece has a place, every combination has an explanation. Greg has a great respect for bespoke style and having a vision that truly reflects the person behind it.
Even if bespoke, tight, and tailored is not your approach, this book is a must have for any designer lover’s library if only for the eye-catching and thought-provoking visuals, thick pages, and the beauty it presents as it sits on your coffee table.
Through his practical direction and tips, Greg opens up a whole new world of inspiration with the The Tailored Interior. And who doesn’t want that?
