Here at WAG, we love beautiful interiors.
That being said, we love beautiful interiors with spirit and meaning even more.
Perhaps that’s what’s drawing us to “Wanderlust: Interiors that Bring the World Home” by Michelle Nussbaumer (Rizzoli New York, $50).
This debut book by Nussbaumer, who’s billed as “a curator who discovers exquisite treasures all over the world for her projects and her Dallas-based design store, Ceylon et Cie,” features her dramatic interior projects, which touch on an array of styles and moods – and even take us into her own homes, in Texas and Switzerland.
Here’s how Nussbaumer describes her approach:
“As much as I love the poetry of design and the beauty of objects and art – and I do – they are inanimate. But when we discover, select and bring them home as reminders of our experiences, they are not only treasures but also treasuries of meaning and memory. That is why I see what I do as less about a house than about a life. A house should never be finished. It is alive, and because it is alive it needs to be breathing, evolving, and changing.”
Sounds like we need to spend some time with “Wanderlust,” right?
