Summary "An arresting mix of artisanal, old, and contemporary furnishings is the hallmark of Casamidy's vibrant and cheerful interiors. For the design duo of Casamidy, Jorge Almada and Anne-Marie Midy, creativity is a way of life that is reflected in their designs, a fusion of their French and Mexican heritages. They show how to incorporate artisanal objects and treasured family heirlooms to orchestrate vivid and dramatic surroundings. This inspiring book showcases their homes and other projects in urban and country settings that illustrate their appealing bohemian aesthetic. For a charming Mexico home, the front doorway is collaged with tin ex-votos and religious charms and crowned with a dramatic cement concha shell. Baroque mirrors, French-style armchairs re-covered in remnants from a fine Paris textile shop, and weathered Moroccan side tables grace the comfortable living spaces. The terra-cotta floors warmed by the sun recall homes in the South of France. For each project, the couple shares their design process, giving the textures and a color palette"-- Provided by publisher.
