Textbook Tuesday | Brian Gluckstein | The Art of Home

Internationally renowned designer Brian Gluckstein has given us a printed collection of his work, and I couldn't be more excited to dive into this one as my first book review for fall. Growing up in Canada, there was little media attention on interior design - but Brian was a constant influence and being exposed to his work through television and other means helped me realize my own love for design at a young age. The Art of Home showcases so many of those mind-shaping projects of which I poured over every tiny detail, and so you can imagine how happy I am to have them all in one place now!


The book features luxe yet liveable spaces that I think you will agree are exceptionally timeless. Each chapter focuses in on a project, from a 'tailored beach house' to a 'historic manse' to the designers own home (truly my favorite part of the book!). In the introduction, we even get a peek at the exterior and interiors of the Toronto-based office of Gluckstein Design located in a 19th century Georgian former printing house.


In each project we see how Brian melds contemporary design with traditional. My favorite mix. And it's truly showcased the best in his own stunning home:


This would really be a perfect gift for any design-lover on your list. I was so happy to read through and find that it's also a practical, informative guide on how to transform and style your own home. 




The beautifully photographed projects are complimented throughout with anecdotes from the designer, inspiring quotes and design tips to take away from. Truly an inspirational body of work from Canada's best, I highly recommend this one as a must-add to your design library! If you've already grabbed a copy I'd love to hear what you think, and if you haven't you can order here
