For those of you looking for another book to add to your design library, you may want to consider "Rooms". With minimal text by Carl Skoggard, the book is a compilation of interior photographs by famed Irish photographer Derry Moore. Moore has had a thirty year career photographing prominent interiors for publications like Architectural Digest. To me, his photos have a rather faded and ethereal look to them.
Below are some of my favorite rooms from the book; in fact, there were so many that it was hard to choose.
The private bath of Madeleine Castaing at her shop on the Rue Jacob
Portrait of Lady Diana Cooper (I included this photo not just because of Cooper's peculiar choice of hats, but also because of the trompe l'oeil panels behind her that were painted by Rex Whistler).
Bedroom of Nancy Lancaster, located in her private quarters at Colefax and Fowler in Mayfair
Villa Trianon, home of Elsie de Wolfe
