9780789203427: Private Hong Kong: Where East Meets West

An exclusive look behind the closed doors of Hong Kong's most extravagant and unusual homes, this elegant book, featuring 300 full-color photographs, reveals the interior style that has given the island its reputation for excess, exoticism, and masterly application of East-meets-West aesthetics.

Few places on earth match the island of Hong Kong for visual drama. Its setting is stunning, and its architecture of contrasts is irresistible—a melding of authentic Chinese elements, colonial charm, and tiger economy. Nowhere is this stylistic mix more evident than in the homes of Hong Kong's most influential and colorful personalities.

Private Hong Kong invites you into the secluded country residence of entrepreneur David Tang, the golden fantasy palace of leading socialites Kai Bong and Brenda Chau, the stately governor's mansion, and a luxurious Chinese junk complete with marble bathroom and Renoir painting.

In addition to these and many other homes, the book includes a Visitor's Guide, listing the paces to see and be seen in while staying in the city, and a Chinese Decorative Arts chapter that will inspire even the most informed collectors.

Review:

With its reputation for excess and exoticism, it's not surprising that Hong Kong boasts lushly extravagant interiors filled with a combination of authentic Chinese elements and opulent Western decor. Short on text but strong on vivid photographs, Private Hong Kong showcases 25 extraordinary residences, including the secluded country estate of an entrepreneur, an architect's sophisticated minimalist loft, the superbly outfitted yacht of a marble dealer (complete with marble vanities, of course), and the island's largest home, the palatial governor's mansion. Few who peruse this book will have the means to approach anything close to this scale of decorating, and many of these interiors are extravagantly overdone, but the confluence of Eastern artifacts overlaid with Western opulence makes for a visual treat. --Amy Handy
