Gloria Vanderbilt cleverly noted, Decorating is autobiography. Reflecting that truism, the interiors in this book capture the individual approaches of these icons of style: Bunny Mellon s spare all-American elegance; Helene Rochas s refined sophistication; Vanessa Bell s colourful bohemianism; Mona von Bismarck s breezy opulence; and Georgia O Keeffe s earthy chic. Author P. Gaye Tapp analyses each of her subjects refined way of living, how she embellished her residences (or left them elegantly stark), and the long-lasting effects on today s generation of designers and connoisseurs of beauty. The book is presented in four sections that describe the aesthetic approaches that the ladies took in decorating their abodes: The Fashionably Chic, The Unconventional Eye, In the Grand Manner, and Legacy Style. Each interior illustrates the crucial aspect of the lady s definitive taste. Some worked closely with decorating legends such as John Fowler, Albert Hadley, Billy Baldwin, Syrie Maugham, and Jean-Michel Frank. Others took to the task of decorating single-handedly like Pauline Trigere, Sybil Connolly, Vita Sackville-West, and Fleur Cowles. The interiors of these trendsetting ladies defied their time and inspire and delight to this day.
