This first book on the esteemed decorator and tastemaker - known for beautiful interiors that are replete with tradition, saturated color, elegance, and Southern flair - will delight design aficionados. Richard Keith Langham's all-American interiors unite a traditional approach with dashes of whimsy, beautiful tailoring, and an exuberant color palette. Langham charms and inspires with a selection of city and country projects - waterside estates on Maryland's Eastern shore and Florida's Jupiter Island, gracious country houses in Pennsylvania and Connecticut, a grand town house in New Orleans, and city residences in New York, DC, and Memphis. Langham conjures his own brand of design magic by addressing his clients' rooms with the rigors of classicism, paired with an innate Southern predilection for paired-down elegance. Signature touches include custom-painted murals, curious antiques, and couture fabrics - motifs that both manifest Langham's design expertise and echo his early influences from working with legends Mark Hampton and Keith Irvine.
