Treats for de­signophiles.

Telling in­side sto­ries in words and pic­tures.

The stun­ning pho­tog­ra­phy is one rea­son to seek out this book, which ex­plores the con­nec­tion between in­te­rior and ex­te­rior. The in­spi­ra­tional de­signs of the eclec­tic houses – from a con­crete mono­lith to a tim­ber cabin – is another. Then there are the im­pres­sive lo­ca­tions, from the Moroc­can desert to the forests of Nor­way. James Sil­ver­man, Gestal­ten, $95 Words

In­te­ri­ors stylist and vin­tage a„cionado Tim Neve’s back­ground in set de­sign re­veals it­self on ev­ery page in the vis­ual sketches he com­poses, each telling a graphic tale and grouped un­der chap­ters such as Beach­comber, Is­lan­der and End­less Sum­mer. His notes on in­spi­ra­tion and how to get the look are equally as evoca­tive as he raises mar­itime styling to an art­form – but in a free-spir­ited, witty way that’s never pre­scrip­tive. Tim Neve, Mur­doch Books, $49.99 Serge Gleizes, Abrams, $90

BRUNO M OINARD: F ROM L INE T O L IGHT

De­spite an im­pres­sive ca­reer in­clud­ing a stint work­ing with de­sign doyenne An­drée Putman, French in­te­rior and fur­ni­ture de­signer Bruno Moinard’s name may not im­me­di­ately strike a chord, though he has made his mark on such sump­tu­ous spa­ces as the Cartier bou­tiques around the world, and the Plaza Athénée ho­tel in Paris, as well as an apart­ment for Karl Lager­feld and count­less houses for rare„ed clients. With a luxe aes­thetic that is never over the top but rather is sub­tle and warm, Moinard’s work – magni„cently cap­tured here – in­spires with its fresh ideas and fo­cus on the qual­ity of light.
