About the Book:
The anatomies of my chosen surrounding are rich with meaning, authentic and borrowed, and are a snapshot (or many snapshots) of a lifetime spent in the world of design.In her newest book, Alexa Hampton takes you on a journey through her life’s work: her beautifully appointed pre-war apartment on 59th street in Manhattan. She highlights the art, textiles, and objects in her spaces, along with the design and fashion tastemakers who inspired their use. In doing so, she acknowledges some of the big movements, auctions, and people that rocked the world of design and made an indelible mark on her.
An intimate look into Alexa's personal design process, including the countless updates and redecorations of her own home, this book is a personal history of interior design and a love letter to an iconic home.
