Livable Luxe is the first-ever monograph on acclaimed Los Angeles-based interior designer Brigette Romanek.
This aspirational collection of Brigette Romanek's distinctive residential interiors highlight luxurious yet casual homes in places ranging from Montecito to New York to Italy. Also included are commercial projects, furniture, and lighting designs, all of which embody the essence of Livable Luxe.
In her introduction, Romanek charts her unique upbringing on the road with her super talented single mother who sang with the likes of Marvin Gaye, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, and Aretha Franklin. What grounded Romanek throughout her peripatetic childhood was her ability to make any new space "home" by decorating and personalizing with special treasures and mementos that had meaning in her life.
As a designer, she has elevated that same instinct by bringing together an eclectic mix of design elements that create a sense of ease, comfort, and style. Her aesthetic blend of both the high end and the accessible, or as she likes to call it, "Gap meets Gucci," is a refreshing approach and fully apparent in her own beautiful home in Laurel Canyon in Los Angeles.
Extensively featured in Livable Luxe are the homes for her celebrity clients who admire and seek her design expertise in creating spaces that evoke a laid-back-yet-elegant feel. Gwyneth Paltrow is a close friend and client, and she has also penned the foreword. Romanek's stunning designs for several of Paltrow's homes are featured here. Livable Luxe is a book that is worthy of its name, filled with full-color images by the best architectural photographers in the world.
