Hundreds of photographs reveal private homes around the world, in particular from places where modern living has achieved its best expression—such as California, Brazil, Scandinavia, and Australia—but also from places where modern forms have been fused with vernacular styles or set against exotic vegetation. From desert to jungle, from city to country, Living Modern offers a boundless resource for achieving a personal vision of contemporary stylishness.
Introduces the reader to wealth of examples of what modern style is with chapters on style, materials, function, elements and outdoors.
