Cohler on Design free pdf Dubbed "The Mixmaster" for his ability to blend high- and low-end pieces to create rooms that are simultaneously fresh and classic, Eric Cohler's interior design is always a tribute to individual personality and style. Full of accessible tips and tricks, Cohler encourages his clients to be true to themselves, revel in what makes them happy, and surround themselves with objects and art that reflect that joy. Interspersed among the 160 illustrations of his own work are images of seminal historic interiors, artwork, style icons, and architectural masterpieces that have influenced Cohler's designs and encouraged him to look at a space in a new way--and likewise teach readers to define what inspires them and how to incorporate that inspiration into their homes in a meaningful way. "Cohler on Design" exemplifies how to live well by integrating your personal tastes and passions into your interiors. This lavishly illustrated volume is a visual tour of Cohler's work, from luxurious penthouses to quaint country homes to glamorous pool-houses- from the bright, clean lines of contemporary design to the rich, intricate detailing of classic architecture. Eric Cohler, a perennial name on Elle Decor's A-List, translates his extensive education in art and architecture into an uncomplicated, modern approach to interior design. He presents each project not as a merely aspirational fait accompli, but as a real example of a design idea that you can try in your own rooms, whether you're hanging your collection of original Andy Warhol prints or your child's finger-paintings. With vivid, dynamic text detailing Cohler's experiences in the world of interiors, "Cohler on Design "is a guide to making the fantastic possible, and the commonplace extraordinary.

About Eric Cohler

Since then, "House Beautiful "has described Cohler as one of the 14 "best of the best" in the "next wave of designers in America," and in June 2010, he was named to "Elle Decor"'s A-List of 30 top U.S. designers working today. He is featured regularly in "Veranda," "Traditional Home," "New York Spaces," and also writes regularly for "American Art Collector."
