Anthony Baratta's rooms are happy. Whether they are found in the country or the city, these maximalist rooms are designed to make you smile. In his first solo book, Anthony Baratta, whose work has graced more than 50 magazine covers and been celebrated in the Cooper-Hewitt, shares twelve of his most recent houses, all in their own way perfect examples of his classic high-color, high-pattern all-American style. Some nod to the historical importance of centuries past, like Baratta's eighteenth-century house in Colonial Williamsburg; some are nautical chic. Some are glorious pop art, with mod rooms and bright, primary colors, while others are chicly rustic. Although all the houses are unique, their rooms share one consistent underpinning--joy. Colorful, pattern-filled, life affirming--these are rooms where life is meant to be lived to the fullest.
