IN YOUR SPACE

An inspiring book on design and a lively autobiography, this text portrays Jenette Kahn's odyssey renovating and decorating her apartment in a landmark Manhattan building, her townhouse in Harlem, her office at DC Comics and MAD Magazine, and her country and guest houses in Connecticut. She describes her creative process throughout her search for innovative, personal solutions to such basic decorating problems as small spaces, low ceilings, and run-down fireplaces. As Jason Schmidt's photographs reveal, she has created a fireplace with a crossword puzzle surround; a dining room with a faux frescoed ceiling of images by Renaissance artists; a painted musical score enlivening a folding closet door; and much more. Kahn also explores new sources for furniture, from Art Deco and mid-century modern to contemporary designs, all the while assembling a colourful, original collection of furnishings and art that reflect her personality. We accompany her on visits to dealers, artists' studios, and flea markets and overhear conversations with contractors and designers. In an exuberant writing style laced with humour and insight, the author shares her mistakes as well as her successes.
