Interior designer Nancy Braithwaite’s long-awaited first book is a striking tutorial in the power of simplicity in design. Braithwaite’s work is luxuriously minimalist, its beauty inextricably tied to its Shaker-like purity. From art deco to country, her underlying rules remain the same: every element should strive to be simple and powerful without compromise, and every room must have a level of power that comes from commanding scale, repetition of elements, subtleties of color, or the sheer beauty of forms. In Simplicity, Braithwaite takes the reader deep into her singular vision.
