Can I tell you a little secret? There's a bit of a man crush going on over here on Bright.Bazaar today and it's all because of one super sophisticated book. American Modern from Abrams books is the charming product of Thomas O'Brien. With it's chic grey cover this book is a delight from the outset and inside we are treated to inspiration from many of O'Brien's projects: a downtown New York City loft, a traditional Connecticut estate, and a converted schoolhouse in eastern Long Island. With each project, the reader is given advice on how to make the best of colour relationships, along with perfecting the art of scale. Beautifully photographed by Laura Resen and split into seven main sections from Traditional Modern to Urban Modern and Elegant Modern to Vintage Modern the 240 pages are almost certain to inspire and, if I'm honest, charm your socks off! This is a considered book of true elegance and style - bravo, Thomas.
