This first book on the esteemed decorator and tastemaker, known for beautiful interiors that are replete with tradition, saturated color, elegance, and Southern flair, will inspire and delight readers.
Richard Keith Langham’s all-American interiors unite a traditional approach with dashes of whimsy, beautiful tailoring, and an exuberant color palette. In this book, Langham charms and inspires with a selection of city and country projects—waterside estates on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and Florida’s Jupiter Island, gracious country houses in Pennsylvania and Connecticut, a grand townhouse in New Orleans, and city residences in New York, Washington, D.C., and Memphis. Langham conjures his own brand of design magic by approaching his clients’ rooms with the rigors of classicism, paired with an innate Southern predilection for pared-down elegance. Signature touches include custom-painted murals, curious antiques, and couture fabrics—motifs that are uniquely Langham’s but that also echo his early influences from working with design legends Mark Hampton and Keith Irvine.
Langham has decorated for a glamorous clientele, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Pat Buckley, and Hilary Swank. This volume presents his captivating, lush interiors—classic American with a vibrant and pattern-friendly flair—that will inspire design aficionados and fellow interior designers.
