About The Book

Acclaimed interior designer to the Hollywood A-list, Kathryn M Ireland celebrates 30 years of decorating in A Life in Design.

Organized by location, the book takes an overview of the interiors Kathryn has designed over the past 30 years, including her own homes in Los Angeles, London, and the south of France. She shares her story of a life in design, from the early days in LA, where she started her career by decorating a home for Steve Martin, to designing houses all over the world, from California to the Cotswolds. This lavishly illustrated deep dive into Kathryn’s work is paired with a wealth of chatty, informal, and invaluable advice on creating comfort, adding color, finding and hanging art, designing great spaces for entertaining, and the design rules she brings to every project. A Life in Design is full of character and charm, just like Kathryn herself.
