Description de l'ouvrage

21 octobre 2008
Mlinaric on Decorating distills a lifetime of experience into one glorious volume. From his small practice started 45 years ago in London, David Mlinaric has become perhaps the most acclaimed interior designer of our time, with thriving offices in Paris and New York. His designs are featured in buildings the world over, including London’s National Gallery, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Spencer House, and the Primary Galleries at the Victoria and Albert Museum. He's also done embassies in Washington, Paris, and Brussels, and houses for the Rothschilds, Mick Jagger, Jerry Hall, and myriad other private clients. Here, Mlinaric and author Mirabel Cecil describe the buildings he has worked on during his long career, with an expert eye toward the creation and interpretation of historic interiors. Two hundred photographs, 175 of them in full color, offer a sumptuous visual tour of these fabulous spaces.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 one of Britain's top interior decorators 29 septembre 2008
Par Henry Berry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Thirteen illustrated chapters exhibit Mlinaric's "new and refreshing eclectic approach" he brings to any interior decoration job. He rose to prominence in the 1960's and 1970's English decorating scene for his association with the group of leading decorators; and also for work he did for Mick Jagger and other prominent cultural figures of the time. The standards and flair of Mlinaric's eclecticism, however, are such that he was not confined to this period. In the 1980s and '90s, he worked on the much-publicized and much-praised restoration of Spencer House in London for Lord Rothschild. Besides being linked with major cultural figures, Mlinaric also received commissions for work for major public institutions. Among these were the National Portrait Gallery, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the National Gallery in London.

Mlinaric's reputation and his eclectic style led to work outside of England as well. He did interior decorating on projects in Italy, Corfu, France, Ireland, and also Texas and New York. The sites of his work range from city to country to water side to rural; the projects, from apartments and individual rooms to sections and private and public areas of manors. This variety of work is displayed in the thirteen chapters on individual projects and in a few cases similar type of project throughout Europe and a couple of spots in the U.S. Several photographs of different sizes from wide angle for entire rooms to close-ups for details of particular objects or groupings capture the accomplishment of the interior design. Mlinaric decorates a room as its architect might imagine it to be decorated ideally. Spacing, colors, shapes, central utilitarian objects such as sofas or beds, and furnishings such as lamps, ceramics, or bronzes make each room unique, inviting, and habitable. Mlinaric seamlessly and singularly bridges the usual, conventional divide between private and public. The objects of his designs--whether chosen by him or givens as with museum pieces--attract, and satisfy, one intellectually and sensually; while their placement (in spots in rooms of homes) or presentation (in museums) gives off an aura of intimacy and ease. This bridging of private and public is accomplished by one's conscious or unconscious involvement with the objects. In museums, this can be paintings, sculptures, or objects d'art; in private homes, often these combined with finely-bound books, ornately-framed mirrors, simply-shaped lamp shades, and combinations of formal-looking and generously-padded furniture.

Curiosity about how Mlinaric acquired his knowledge and vision is answered in the first chapter. Born in 1939, Mlinaric attended London's Bartlett School of Architecture; which at the time followed a historical approach to the study of architecture. This traditional approach included subjects such as "sciagraphy," the science of how shadows are cast and in so doing affect architecture. Travel to his father's birthplace of Yugoslavia and to Italy and France complemented his sound, traditional learning. In Paris, by chance he came upon the shop of the legendary decorator Madeleine Castaing. Its collection of mixed objects and materials made a lasting impression on him. Such are some origins of Mlinaric's outstanding design sense which is both uncompromising over decades and adaptable to the nature of each particular project. His characteristic eclecticism has no relationship to collage, pastiche, or kitsch. It is a reflection of classical education, wide-ranging experience and interests, and intuitions of space. He absorbed Madeleine Castaing's remark about designing rooms as poets write poems.

I think I own all or most of them and can say that this is one of the best retrospectives of any on the market. And especially noteworthy because Mlinaric's name isnt a commonly heard one. Great text and photographs. I highly recommend it.

You may not have heard of the British designer David Mlinaric. However, you most likely have seen his work if you follow design as he worked on the decor in the British Embassies in the U.S. and Paris, London's National Gallery, London's Portrait Gallery, the Royal Opera House, Spencer House, various National Trust buildings and private work for Lord Rothschild and Mick Jagger among other private clients.

This book details many of those projects, although it would have been sublime to have had more of his private work featured. His own homes are included in the book as well as the homes of his business partners. His work is not flamboyant - there's a historic element and appropriateness you will see. But his work is highly original He believes in the philosophy one should "set houses free" to speak for themselves, this book tells us. Written by Mirabel Cecil who has written for WORLD OF INTERIORS and COUNTRY LIFE, Cecil has known Mlinaric since 1975. He asked her to write the book as he was reticent to use the words 'I' and 'me' in talking about design. Although I love to hear designers and artists talk about their work, you have to admire his humility.

Cecil writes of Mlinaric's approach: "He does not specialize in any period but is conversant with many...his priority - that what an object, whether a piece of furniture or a picture, a book or a rug, IS matters more than its condition - has been inspirational in the creation and the arrangement of interiors during the decades covered by this book." The book's narration travels chronologically through his career and ends with his latest country home decorated rather simply. This home in Somerset, called Spargrove, has lovely limewashed colored walls that look like water color paint. There are 200 photographs, 175 of them in full color. There were many full-page images - you wish that most of them were. The paper is thick and the color seemed fairly true.

You realize with Mlinaric's 50-plus year career, there were probably many more projects which didn't make it into the book or magazines, and you can't help to want to see more of this talented designer's work. This is a lovely compilation of his talent.
