Paying tribute and homage to the French Quarters compelling clash-of-culture imagery of past and present, this highly visual collage reveals a mad hatters mesmerizing jumble of exquisitely-controlled chaos. Subscribing to the age-old axioms of "excess is best" and "too much is never enough," the style enchants the mind and the eye with a hypnotic blend of African, Parisian, and equestrian-inspired themes and motifs threaded throughout every room. Ravishing, uncanny, and confounding design applications, never before previewed, spill from every page, coupled with astonishing how-to design philosophy and real-life applications. Packing oodles of countless collectibles and curiosities into even the smallest space, the eye-popping style dismisses and defies all preconceived notions and perceptions or predictable, anemic interior decorating ideas. Through a ceiling-to-floor embellishment of exquisite and peculiar accessories, ornamentation, and colors, a mix of opulently cheap to chichi and colossal furnishingsincluding artifacts, antiques, accessories, collectibles, curios, and other fine objects dartcrowds each room.
