- Whitney Robinson, the current editor in chief of Elle Décor wrote the Foreword
Emmy Award-winning designer Kerry Joyce is known for the refined elegance and quiet classicism that unite his varied houses and interiors, as well as his collections of textiles, furniture, and rugs. His debut book spans a fascinating career, celebrating a unique, warm design sense that seeks always to turn houses into homes - to achieve the Intangible through the creation of tranquility and balance. The book covers eight homes in a surprising range of styles, from modern to traditional, urban to rustic, period restorations to entirely newly imagined houses that feel as though they are just as authentic. In addition, a charming introduction describes Joyce's unusual path to becoming a designer, with thoughtful essays on each part of his work, from houses to interiors to his products. A special view into the creative process of an influential and multi-talented designer.

What the press have said about this book...
"His fabrics, his furniture, his interiors—they all have a certain je ne sais quoi. Now Kerry Joyce, in his first book, sheds light on the intangible, taking readers through eight projects in which his quiet classicism turned mere houses into homes. You’ll want to jump right in—but don’t skip the introduction." – Traditional Home
