This series examines the meeting of lifestyle and interior design. Each volume will concentrate either on "ethnic" or "urban" traditions, encompassing places in the world that provide inspiration to today's designers. The series looks at not only the particular design itself, but the context in which it exists, the inspirations from which it originated, and the ways in which it can be applied. Examples are given from both public and private buildings. This volume looks at the London minimum design theme.

Herbert Ypma is the author and photographer who created the popular Hip Hotels series. His previous books include Maison: Christian Liaigre.From Library Journal:
These "visual sourcebooks" will provide architects and designers with a look at the decorative styles of the Pacific Islands and contemporary London. With similar layouts that show the interiors, colors, and individual ingredients that comprise each look, both show contemporary interpretations of styles that in London Minimum traces back to Georgian England and in Pacific Island is seen as a resurfacing of native Polynesian themes. Those familiar with Suzanne Slesin's style books (e.g., Spanish Style, Crown, 1990) will be disappointed in how few photographs Ypma uses to express each style. However, these books will be extremely useful for design inspiration in large and professional interior design collections.
