The Elegant Life
Known for his interesting mix of elegant and modern styles that he masterfully assembles to create timeless spaces, Alex Papachristidis has evolved his decorating over the past decade, with the incorporation of more artisanal furniture and artwork. This beautifully photographed book profiles a wide array of arresting projects, including a luxe, modern beach house decorated in gold, silver, and white; a Manhattan home that has a vivid lavender-and-blue palette; and a colorful “bohemian” apartment incorporating midcentury furniture. Each project presents the varied ways he makes spaces versatile to share with family and friends—from cozy seating areas to games tables.
Throughout the book are tabletop settings styled by Papachristidis that are integrated in many of the featured homes. He shows his clients how to mix such wide-ranging elements as contemporary dishes with antique decorative objets to create eye-catching tableaux. With this book, the author shares his extensive knowledge for gracious living.
