Those with a penchant for beautiful design can always appreciate a gorgeous new coffee table book. If that’s you, you’ll want to crack open the newly released James Huniford At Home.
Over the course of eight chapters brimming with 200 images, the prolific Huniford—commonly referred to as “Ford”—shares his approach to designing everything from dining rooms and libraries to kitchens and bedrooms in homes across New York, Connecticut, Martha’s Vineyard, Nashville and Marin County, California.
But this monograph is far from all dessert and no entrée. Along with its aesthetic allure, you’ll get to follow Huniford’s thought process as he takes on each project, starting with how he considers scale and proportion, moving through the selection of art and color, and offering insight into his mastery of juxtaposing contemporary and traditional, rustic and refined, all while ensuring each home remains true to the personalities of its occupants. Also showcased are Huniford’s own Tribeca loft and his historic Bridgehampton home, both of which he has referred to as “laboratories” for his ideas.
