Here is bit more about the book's creative team courtesy of Joel Longenecker.


"Annie Kelly is a decorator, design journalist and author of Casa Mexicana Style, Casa San Miguel, and Rooms to Inspire."




"Ms. Kelly is also the book reviewer for Introspective, the first on-line-only design magazine at www.1stdibs.com and editor-in-chief of the New York Observer Home magazine. She also writes occasionally for World of Interiors in London. Ms. Kelly is also working on decorating projects in Los Angeles and New York, and is planning her fifth book, Rooms to Inspire in the City. Her decorating work has been featured in Elle Décor, Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, House & Garden and recently in Country Living."

"Tim Street-Porter is an award-winning and internationally recognized photographer and author of architecture and design. His work is seen in many design magazines, including Architectural Digest, Metropolitan Home, World of Interiors, Elle Décor and House Beautiful. Tim has written and photographed six books on design and architecture, and his latest is L.A. Modern published last Fall by Rizzoli."
"His photography can be currently seen in the inaugural show of the new Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles."

"Within the book are houses, ranging from family estates to weekend retreats that are the personal homes of decorators and tastemakers, including Jonathan Adler, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, and Steven Gambrel. The properties exemplify varied design perspectives and provide fresh ideas about how country living is ideal for creative expression."
