"One of the rare decorators who excels at both traditional and modern interiors."--Elle Decoration. No matter what the style, designer John Stefanidis can work with it and improve upon the existing architecture. The full breadth and scope of his talent is on display here, shown in photographs of interiors from a range of very different homes--a Scottish fishing lodge, a Greek villa, a Thameside pied-à-terre, and a Toronto townhouse. First, look at the entire project, with its thematic coherence, and then gaze more closely at individual rooms and savor each wonderful detail. 160 pages (all in color), 10 1/16 x 11 7/16.

John Stefanidis was born in Egypt and studied at Oxford University. He started his London-based interior design practise in Chelsea in 1967 and from here he designs for clients around the world. John lives in London SW1 but he also spends time at his house on the Greek island of Patmos.From Publishers Weekly:
Henderson, a journalist and book author ( Paris Embassy Cookbook ), here offers an extended paean to the Egyptian-born, Oxford-educated interior designer who has created many sumptuous environments in and out of Europe. (Among them was the redecorated ballroom, featured in these pages, of the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., then occupied by the author and her husband, British ambassador to the U.S.) Discussing suites of rooms designed by Stefanidis, and then examining each room in detail, the author indulges a fondness for effusive commentary (e.g., the designer is compared with Tolstoy) that strains her credibility. Grounds for praise are evident in Stefanidis's aristocratic interiors, which typically evoke a ravishing world of hushed European hauteur. (Some, orchestrated with upscale "simplicity," are perhaps more beautiful still.) But because Henderson does not reckon objectively with his esthetic, she does not serve the designer's best interests, or ours.
