Windsor Smith Homefront: Design For Modern Living

Mixing glamour with modern practicality, interior designer Windsor Smith’s first book celebrates her elegant, comfortable style. Windsor Smith’s aesthetic was once described as "unbuttoned elegance, like a taffeta dress worn with bare feet." In her first book, Smith—a traditionalist who likes to realize classic themes in a new way—shares her fresh vision for modern life. Each chapter reflects one of her unique philosophies for creating beautiful, livable spaces, expressed through the homes she designs. Themes include how to bring balance—an essential ingredient to a beautiful, functional home—into rooms and spaces, as well as how to successfully combine new belongings with treasures from the past to create homes that reflect where we have come from, as well as where we wish to go. Whether it is repurposing a neglected dining room or expanding the role of the kitchen, Windsor Smith Homefront will guide readers to reclaiming their home’s best spaces and remaking them to suit a modern life.

A bit of a one note wonder. Shots seem very staged for impact but not about real design. Backgrounds are dramatic but all the same scheme.

Great design work! It took me a long time to purchase this book since I'm not a fan of traditional design. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Windsor Smith's design work, while generally traditional, has a modern element. I could actually see myself being happy living in some of these homes, even though I prefer modern design. The book itself is very well made with large clear photographs and heavy, high quality paper. I'm very pleased with this purchase.

I have such a design crush on Windsor Smith. I believe it really started when she did that gorgeous, pink, living room on the cover of House Beautiful. Then, of course there was the fantastic kitchen, with all the light, large table that you could just feel people gathered around; but, it was still equiped for a serious cook to whip up some culinary ecstasy.Her book did not disappoint me in any way. In fact, if anything it only reaffirmed my crush.I truly do enjoy seeing what Windsor Smith will be "creating" next in beautiful interiors.

Pretty photos of authors house and a few others. Other than mixing up styles not much specific information.

Beautiful book!!! Windsor Smith is one of my favorite designers and this book does not disappoint. Beautiful pictures..

Great design, great book. Wish I knew this woman, can totally relate to her philosophy and style!

one of the most beautiful interior design books ever.

Large beautiful book, excellent photos, great addition to my coffee table books!
