Be my Guest
Pierre Sauvage invites us into the homes of twenty influential tastemakers, offering inspiration from living and dining room interiors to table settings, floral arrangements, and recipes. The most welcoming homes reflect the personality of the host and beckon guests to sit down and stay for a while among friends. Pierre Sauvage, owner and creative director of the Parisian design firm Casa Lopez, invites the reader to visit some of the world's most talented hosts, who hail from the beauty, fashion, interior design, and art worlds — tastemakers such as Martina Mondadori, Aerin Lauder, Carolina Irving, Jacques Garcia, Linda Pinto, Christian Louboutin, Chahan Minassian, Patrick Perrin, Terry de Gunzburg, Jamie Creel, and Robert Couturier. Signature details from their chic and stylish interiors are brought into focus in a richly detailed volume featuring photographs of gorgeous art-filled dining rooms, sumptuous floral arrangements, unique furniture, fine tableware, festive tablescapes, and playful garden picnics. With flair and sophistication, exquisite table settings provide the backdrop for favorite recipes selected by each host, including arugula and crab salad, chicken with morel mushrooms, lemon tiramisu, and peach sorbet. The perfect book for anyone who loves to entertain, Be My Guest will provide endless sources of inspiration and delight.
