68 FRANÇOIS HALARD FRANCESCO LAGNESE F r o m m i n i m a l i s m t o maximalism and everything in between, the possibilities for decorating are limitless — and daunting. Dara Caponigro, who was editor in chief of Veranda before landing at Schumacher in 2013 as creative director, gathers iconic rooms around the world, deftly mixing fascinating photos with the work of today's top designers in her new book, S is for Style: The Schumacher Book of Decoration out this month (Rizzoli, B Y R E B E C C A S H E R M A N DARA CAPONIGRO'S NEW BOOK IS A CRASH COURSE IN FINDING YOUR DESIGN OEUVRE. $65). It's organized into 16 lush, thematic chapters, such as Sensual & Spare, Preppy, Boho, and Updated Country, with each section providing a breakdown of ingredients and mood boards of Schumacher patterns including Citrus Garden, designed in 1947 by Josef Frank and returned to production in 2014. Schumacher has a 131-year-history from which to pull images; we swoon over Billy Haines' Garden Room at Winfield House, Lee Radziwill's Renzo Mongiardino- designed London drawing room, Diane von Furstenberg's NYC apartment, Valentino's tented Roman lair, Mona von Bismarck's villa on Capri, and Elsie de Wolfe's Villa Trianon. These share pages with new icons of designs: Miles Redd, Tom Scheerer, Amanda Lindroth, Celerie Kemble, David Kleinberg, Marie-Anne Oudejans, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Mary McDonald, Mark D. Sikes, and a host of others. The cover of S is for Style comes in three classic Schumacher patterns: Ze'bre Epingle, Cloud Toile, and Roca Edonda. S IS FOR STYLE, SCHUMACHER, AND SUMPTUOUS A bathroom enveloped in Schumacher's Indian Arbre tree-of-life fabric. Room designed by Amanda Lindroth. Walls upholstered in Schumacher's Great Barrier Reef, sofa in Sophia velvet and trimmed in Hula fringe, curtains in Palmetto Beach embroidery.
