CURTAIN UP! THIRTY YEARS OF SPECTACULAR SHOWHOUSE ROOMS. Barbara Ostrom. Pointed Leaf Press, New York, 2015. Distributed by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 228 pp. 30 x 27 cm. ISBN 9781938461286 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Curtain Up!: Thirty Years of Spectacular Showhouse Rooms is a glossy compendium of interior designer Barbara Ostrom's extraordinary rooms that she has created in the last 30 years for the most prestigious showhouses in New York City, New Jersey, and the Hamptons. With a preface by Mario Buatta, the book highlights some of Barbara's most wildly imaginative and over-the-top rooms. It also displays her process from start to finish where she often has to begin with a gutted, crumbling room. The results are whimsical and colorful, with details ranging from a crystal chandelier adorned with an umbrella, ten foot high canopy beds, antique birdcages, Fu dogs, a 15th century knight in armor, Grecian gas lights, a hand-woven hammock from Jamaica, to ceilings painted with monkeys, parrots, squirrels, and butterflies. Barbara Ostrom's rooms are exuberant and uplifting - no wonder she's been dubbed 'Queen of the Showhouse.'
