The work of Solis Betancourt is sublime, seemingly effortlessly combining classical and contemporary to create a timeless ambiance. He and his partner Paul Sherrill believe that the soul and spirit of great interiors begins with fine works of art. The skillful integration of paintings, sculpture, period furniture, and decorative objects is a hallmark of the firm's rooms. Each of the fourteen recent projects presented in this volume incorporate works of art from a different period or style. Each project is introduced with a vignette that focuses on the artwork--which ranges from Old Master drawings to African and Pre-Columbian sculpture to bold contemporary paintings--that served as the design inspiration for the interiors.
