The beautiful, much-loved, much-missed interiors magazine, Nest, is brought back to life in this lavish overview of exciting and unusual home décor.
Holtzman, a maverick artist turned designer, editor and publisher, knew the power of charming appointments, because he was running Nest, one of the world’s best-loved, most dearly missed and most truly innovative interior design publications. He founded the magazine in 1997 closed it in 2004, and, inbetween, ignored conventionally acceptable luxury interiors in favour of idiosyncratic, exceptional, and often stunningly unusual environments.
True to form, Holtzman sneaked into Talley’s ward, to upgrade his friend's bed and room with Frette linens, an Hermès blanket, a portrait of Diana Vreeland, and a modest Pierre Bonnard painting. The results, which were published in the magazine’s summer edition of that year, stand in testament to Holtzman's ambition to champion beautiful and unusual interior decor, even in the most challenging circumstances.
Now, The Best of Nest, a 524-page, hardback book, reproduces - for the very first time - the greatest moments from the magazine’s 26-issue run, featuring 300 beautiful colour illustrations, and 30 gatefold spreads.
