In his most personal book to date, William Yeoward reveals his passion for colour, his inspirations and the "stories" behind his unique use of colour as he takes you on a journey through a dazzling array of beautiful homes. Known for his chic and stylish colour combinations, William Yeoward reveals his colour secrets, starting with the classic combination of blue and white - there are cobalt silk sofas, indigo linen armchairs, aquamarine and white patterned ceramics and sapphire plush cushions, all combined to evoke a sense of luxury, in William's trademark style. The unique colour stories in the book include red, white and blue in a villa in France, a comfortable coastal retreat with hints of pink, taking you through to lavender and amethyst in the country and the city, soft grey studies in living rooms and table settings, a blazing ochre red contemporary cottage, an orange rustic barn dinner, and a red and steel outdoor kitchen. This is William's fourth book and is the first one to focus on his passion for colour and the sumptuous interiors that can be created by focusing on details and by layering opulent textures, prints and proportions.
This book looks at the intersection of celebrity and design, through the case of twenty-five houses designed by great architects for their informed, trend-setting, and extremely famous clients, in Southern California. Included are gorgeous photos of the houses as well as little seen informal portraits of the stars and wonderfully detailed texts that tell the story of these members of the glitterati, touching on film, fashion, architecture, and the everyday lives of legends. Hollywood Modern spans the modern era, from moderne homes of the 1930s, through mid-century modern designs, to the present day. Hollywood Modern touches on the many moods of modernism. From Ed Niles Johnny Carson House in Malibu, which creates a ficus tree forest that extends from the garden directly into the house, to the machine-age austerity of Richard Neutra's Von Sternberg House, (later owned by The Fountainhead author Ayn Rand), to A. Quincy Jones' crisply, elegantly ultramodern Gary Cooper House in Holmby Hills, these houses edit, rearrange and direct our point of view much like the carefully composed version of reality we see in motion pictures. These different styles co-exist as modernism and stand in distinct contrast to the Mediterranean villas and Spanish Colonial manses of early Hollywood.
