Item description for The Russian House: Architecture & Interiors by Ella Krasner...
The Russian home is truly eclectic, a surprisingly harmonious mingling of color and pattern, carved furniture, glass, textiles, porcelain, and religious icons. And whether a city apartment or a country dacha, the Russian house is typically warm and welcoming---a haven in a harsh climate. Russians treasure their possessions, adore color, texture, and pattern, and effortlessly create interiors that are a reminder of the Russian tradition of hospitality. The Russian House invites the reader inside12 beautiful private homes; in 200 color photographs and a fascinating text, this sublime volume offers a rare look at the history, romance, and enchantment of the Russian dwelling. The work of photographer Andreas von Einsiedel has appeared in many magazines, including World of Interiors, Architectural Digest, and Vogue Living; among his previous books is The Provenal House: Architecture and Interiors. Writer Ella Krasner was born in Russia and now lives in London.
